Nevertheless, UK passport holders are eligible to apply for a Vietnam Visa online, a quick and straightforward process: You can obtain a new visa and be ready to meet the entry requirements in a few steps.

The following article goes over instructions for applying for a valid visa, fees, and Vietnam visa requirements to successfully apply for a Vietnam Visa.

WHAT IS A VIETNAM E-VISA?

The Vietnamese electronic visa (e-Visa) is a type of visa that foreigners need to enter this country. The Vietnam Immigration Department has been issuing this document since 2017. This entry visa enables travelers to obtain visas online without going to a Vietnam embassy. More than 80 different nationalities can visit Vietnam for tourism or business with it.

UK citizens flying to Vietnam need a visa to enter the territory. But the process is easy since they are eligible for an electronic Vietnam visa. It’s necessary to provide a few valid documents during the application:

  • Passport: The British citizen passport must be valid for at least six months at the time of arrival in Vietnam. The passport must have at least two blank pages to apply for an entry and exit stamp (one on each page).

  • Recent passport photo: UK passport holders that don't have one can use the iVisa Passport Photo Service.

  • Health insurance: British citizens need to show evidence of medical or travel insurance with provision for COVID-19 treatment in Vietnam, with a minimum cover threshold of USD 10,000.

  • Vaccinations: Vaccination for diseases and viruses, such as hepatitis, yellow fever, and malaria, is strongly recommended.

  • Payment method: A credit or debit card to pay the Vietnam tourist visa/business visa service and a government fee.

  • Valid email address: To receive your e-visa receipt and confirmation.
