    2nd e-visa

    Apr 07, 2023
    Hello, I currently have a e-visa being processed for approval however my plans have suddenly changed and I may not be entering Vietnam in within the dates on the application. Can I apply for a second e -visa with different dates and use that one instead? Thank you
    Vietnam Evisa Support
    Apr 10, 2023

    Dear Joseph L,

    Thanks for your attention on our website.
    The validity period of your e-Visa begins from the date specified in your approved e-Visa document. You can enter Vietnam on any date within this validity period. But you must leave by the Exit date specified on your E-Visa
    You cannot enter Vietnam before or after the validity period specified in your e-Visa. if you want to enter Vietnam before or after the validity period, you have to apply for the new E-Visa.

    Or you can enter Vietnam for 15 days on Visa exemption with your valid UK passport.

    Best Regards,
    Heidi Phan
