Like citizens of other countries that are not included in the Vietnam visa exemption list, Hong Kong residents need to have a valid Vietnam visa Hong Kong for their visit to Vietnam. Nowadays, people who are living in this country have two main options to get Vietnam visa in Hong Kong.

Two methods of applying for Vietnam visa in Hong Kong

The first method is known as Vietnam visa on arrival (VOA). This visa type is created to help people who live far from the location of Vietnam Embassy or Consulate or in countries that do not have the Vietnam Embassy easily obtain a visa for Vietnam. In addition, travelers can reap a lot of benefits when choosing this method since it is convenient, inexpensive, quick, and safe.

On the other hand, you can decide to apply for visa at the Vietnam Consulate Hong Kong. However, this solution is more complex than submitting Vietnam visa on arrival Hong Kong. You must submit your passport and relevant documents in person or send them to the Consulate of Vietnam in Hong Kong. This is quite inconvenient because in some cases, your application is unsuccessful as a result of missing passport or important documents. Moreover, getting Vietnam visa Hong Kong embassy also takes you plenty of time and money due to its complicated procedures and high service fees.

However, the benefit of this method is that you can have a Vietnam visa for Hong Kong stamped onto your passport before boarding the plane. You can also deal with the Consulate of Vietnam in your country directly if there is any problem.

Vietnam visa requirements Hong Kong

In order to legally request for visa on arrival. Citizens from Hong Kong have to satisfy the following requirements:

  • Having a 6 month validity passport from the travel date because sometimes applicants might get declined with less-than-6-month-validity passport. If your passport does not have enough blank page, you will be issued a loose-leaf visa.
  • Visa on arrival is available at four Vietnam international airports so it is only applicable for travelers coming to Vietnam by air.
  • Tourist visa and business visa are two main types of Vietnam visa on arrival. Vietnam tourist visa has a maximum 3 months period of stay, while business visa has up to 12 months. The valid time of visa on arrival is from the travel date provided in the application form, not from the date of making the application. Therefore, you are advised to make an application for visa upon arrival as soon as possible to avoid potential mistakes at last minutes.

    How to obtain Vietnam visa on arrival for Hong Kong citizens

    Step 1: Complete an online application form and make payment

    You need to fill in an online Vietnam visa Hong Kong application form with personal information which is exactly the same as what is written on your passport. Once the application is filled, you will need to make a payment for the service. Greenvisa approves all main kinds of credit and debit cards.

    Step 2: Receive and print out the approval letter

    After the successful submission of application and payment, your visa will be processed within two working days (or 4 hours depending on the service you choose). The visa approval letter will be sent to your email and you need to print it out to check in and present to the Immigration officer at the airport. Also, two photos (4x6cm) and some cash for the stamping fee are required to prepare in this step.

    Step 3: Get visa stamped at Vietnam international airport

    After landing in Vietnam airport in Hanoi, Danang, Cam Ranh, or Ho Chi Minh, you will be required to fill out an entry and exit form and hand in your approval letter, passport, photos, and stamping fee to get your visa stamp.
