VOA: Visa on arrival

Visa on Arrival (VOA) is a type of Visa that you get when arriving at the Vietnam International airports. When applying for VOA, you will get a Visa Approval letter which is used for boarding the plane and getting Visa Stamp and Visa Sticker at the Vietnam airports.

 

The valid time of VOA:

For Tourist VOA: based on your return ticket, and your stay must be less than 20 days. 

For Business VOA: 3 months multiple entries. The requirements for Business VOA are listed below:

  1. A sponsor company in Vietnam (the company you will work for after entering Vietnam) that is willing to sponsor your visa and travel. It must be a real company, not a service one, as you may encounter certain hardships if using a service/ghost one.
  2. Your passport: must be valid for at least 6 months from your date of entry into Vietnam and have at least 02 blank pages.
  3. Certified copy of Business registration of the sponsor company
  4. Form NA2 
  5. Form NA16 
  6. Other documents as required.

This process will take around 7 - 12 working days since receipt of full documents.
