All You Need to Know About Vietnam Visa Application Form
A Vietnam application form is a document every foreign passenger arriving in Vietnam by air should produce in order to gain entry into the country. If you are visiting the country, you will be given a visa application form on the airplane or when you arrive at a Vietnam airport. After filling in the form and confirming all the details, return the form to the immigration officer. The officer will then stamp your visa on arrival, or if you have a pre-arranged visa, they will give you an entry stamp. If you don’t want to take a lot of time filling in the form on arrival, you can download the form beforehand and fill it in unhurriedly. You should ignore the note on the arrival form indicating that you need to fill out two forms. One form is enough and when you have filed in all the details, you should submit it to the immigration officer present at the airport.
How to Fill in The Form
When applying for the visa, you need to have the printed documents, i.e. Both the visa application form and the visa approval letter and money to cater to the stamp charges.
You should have two recent passport size photos 4?6 with a white background, bare head, and without sunglasses. Put one of the photos on the top left corner of the application form and retain the other one.
When filling out your personal information, write your full names in capital letters, your sex (whether male or female), date of birth, place of birth, your nationality of birth, current nationality, your religion, occupation, businesses address, your permanent residential address, your phone number, and email address, and names of your family members.
Fill in your passport number or other travel documents you are using. The number should be identical to the one in the visa approval letter. Also, indicate the type of passport you are using. It could be ordinary, diplomatic, or official. Don’t forget to include the name of the company that issued you with the passport and its expiry date.
If you had visited Vietnam previously, fill in the exact dates you visited the country. On the other part, fill in the date you intend to visit Vietnam, the number of days or months you will be staying in the country, and the residential address you will be using while in the country. If you will be staying in a hotel, provide the address of the facility, and if you will be staying at your friend’s house, indicate their details on the form.
You also need to fill in additional information about the person or organization that will be hosting you in Vietnam. If you will be visiting the country with children under fourteen years, provide his/her passport-sized photo 4?6 and their details including sex and date of birth.
If you want single or multiple visas, tick again the space indicating your preference.
When you finish filling out all the details, finish by writing the name of the place you have filled in the form and the date. After that, sign the form and write your full names under your signature.
