The tourist visa is the most popular type of visa which is normally valid for 1 month or 3 months, and it is fairly easy for all nationalities to obtain. Tourist visas can be extended once you are arriving to Vietnam and be good for TOURISM purposes only.
There are basically two types of tourist visas, but they are also divided into single or multiple entry:
- 30-days single or multiple entry
- 3-months single or multiple entry
VIETNAM TOURIST VISA EXTENSION
Tourist visas may be extended only once for 30 days. Although it would save some money, it can be quite a hassle to do the application on your own, so it is recommended that you spend the extra money and do the process through a tour agency. It should only take two or three days, and is easiest in the bigger cities, such as Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Danang and Hue.
RE-ENTRY VIETNAM TOURIST VISA
If you arrive in Vietnam with a single entry visa, then decide that you want to travel to a bordering country, and later return to Vietnam, you must have a re-entry visa. Arrange it before you leave Vietnam, otherwise, you will have to go through the entire visa process again. It is best to do this through a travel agent, as you will most likely need help with the paperwork, and they can complete the procedure in a day or two.
