Posted by Vietnam-Evisa.Org on Apr 14, 2015

What is visa extension?

Expats who want to prolong your stay without leaving the country and stay legally in Vietnam, please apply for visa extension. By this action, you will get an extension stamp on your passport indicating your new stay duration.


Who needs visa extension?

  • If you entered Vietnam with Visa Exemptions, E-Visas or Tourist Visas from March 1, 2020, you will be eligible for “automatic stay permit extension” until January 31, 2021, and are allowed to exit Vietnam at any time until January 31, 2021 without following any stay permit extension procedure. But if you intend to stay in Vietnam after January 31, 2021, please apply for a visa extension. The “automatic stay permit extension” valids until the Government opens out-bound flights, then expats have to leave once exit flights are available. If expats tend to stay in Vietnam after the Government opens flights, please extend your visa.
  • If you entered with Visa Exemptions, E-Visas or Tourist Visas before March 1, 2020, you will be eligible for the same policy if you show either of the following documents when exiting Vietnam:
    • ► A certification by your diplomatic mission in Vietnam through an official Diplomatic Note stating that you are stuck in Vietnam due to Covid 19 (attached with a translation in Vietnamese);
    • ► Documents issued by the Vietnamese authorities certifying that you have undergone quarantine or treatment for COVID-19 or are stuck here due to reasons beyond your control.
  • If you don’t meet the conditions above, please apply for visa extension.
  • Those in Vietnam under a Business Visa are required to extend visa before its expiry date.
