Vietnam Visa Info

Recommended Posts

I am hoping to get a 3 month Viet Visa to enter in Feb.

In Chiang Mai currently.

 

Is there any way I can get that while in Chiang Mai, or am I limited to a 30 day eVisa?

Can the 30 day eVisa be extended while in Vietnam?

 

Any other suggestions?

Visa on Arrival or is that only 30 days?

 

Haven't checked all airlines flight routes yet but assuming I'll have to go CM to BKK, then BKK to Da Nang which is where I want to land.

Check with Travel Shoppe at Thapae they handle visas but not sure of the 3 months. Air Asia has direct flights to Da Nang.

Very worrying rumors Vietnam stops issuing 3 months tourist visas next july. Maximum stay on tourist visa would be then 1 month.

From what I have been able to determine the length of the visa will remain the same but you must do a border run every 30 days.

I'm going to have to get a 30 day eVisa.

 

Does anyone know if that can be extended or if when in Da Nang I can obtain a new 90 day visa to use once the 30 day eVisa expires?

 

Also - if I take Air Asia Chiang Mai to Da Nang - if I have an eVisa, do I also have to show Air Asia an outward flight ticket?

UPDATE on Vietnam visa rules:
Rather than having to make a border run every 30 days, as previously announced, tourists will be given the option of reporting to their local immigration office (for a fee of US$10), or of hiring an agent to do so. That would mean, on a 90 day tourist visa, you would report to the local IO twice, and have to cross the border and return with a new visa (or in the case of Americans, with a one-year visa, cross the border and return, three times a year).
See new Eli the Bike Guy video. New Visa Rules discussion occur roughly 12:30- 21:00

Here is Eli's new, succinct 7 minute video on the tourist visa process, focusing on the 90-day tourist visa only. Whether they (agents/immigration) will sell longer-term visas is another question.
