One Year Visa Question, US Citizen.Apr 19, 2019Hello team!
I'm a US citizen who is looking into the one-year multi-entry tourist visa. Can you help clarify, will I have to leave Vietnam every 3 months/90 days and come back through a land border for the visa to remain valid for the full year? Thanks for your help!Vietnam Evisa SupportApr 21, 2019
Dear Jordan Noble,
Thanks for your questions!
We would like to inform that you must leave Viet nam every 3 months by air with 1 year tourist visa. In case you wish to visit Viet Nam for full year without leaving, it is suggested for you to apply for 1 year multiple BUSINESS visa
