Document Requirements

These requirements are applicable for US Citizens applying at the Washington DC Office

Please send TDS your current valid and signed passport. It must not expire within 6 months and must have at least one blank visa page. Foreign Embassies cannot issue a visa on a page not labeled as a Visa page. Amendment and Endorsement pages in the back of the passport cannot be used for issuance of a visa.
A visa cannot be stamped on a page even if only one Small Stamp is on the visa page. If you do not have any blank visa pages in your passport, TDS can assist you in applying for additional pages. If your passport expires within 6 months, you must renew your passport and then we will secure your visa with the new passport.

 

Please send 1 recent professional passport-type photograph.
Digital and non-passport photographs are not acceptable.

Pre-approval for visa clearance obtained for an applicant by his/her partner, host, representative, ahead of time at the Immigration Department, Ministry of Public Security (258 Nguyen Trai Street, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City or 40a Hang Bai, Hanoi). The Embassy of Vietnam issues the visa to the applicant based on that approval.

Please send a copy of the Official Invitation/Pre-approval, or write the approval number on the top of the visa application form.

 

 

Applicants applying for a 3, 6 or 12 month multiple entry visa must provide a copy of their flight itinerary.

A Vietnamese loose leaf visa is a visa issued on a separate sheet of paper not stamped into your actual passport. The benefit of applying for a loose leaf visa vs a traditional stamped visa is Traveldocs will not require you to send your passport as part of the application process only a copy will be required.

The Embassy of Vietnam offers a loose leaf visa, a process that permits you to apply for the visa without submitting your actual passport to the Consulate.

If you select a loose leaf visa all of the above requirements apply with two exceptions.
First, you must supply two passport photographs.
Second, you must submit a photocopy of your passport information page instead of your actual passport.

Once Traveldocs secures your loose leaf Vietnamese visa and returns it to you by FedEx we strongly recommend that you staple it into your passport for safe keeping or store it in a secure place as you will be required to present it to the immigration officials when you arrive in Vietnam.
