Vietnam visa, without a doubt, is one of the most important documents for travelers across the world to legally enter Vietnam. As time goes by, the Vietnam Government has reached several agreements with other countries on letting their residents go into Vietnam without Vietnam visa for a fixed amount of time and vice versa. However, it is unfortunate that the United States is not included in the list of nationalities who are eligible for Vietnam visa exemption. Therefore, you have to apply for a Vietnam visa for US citizens before traveling to the country for any particular purpose.

Currently, American tourists planning to come to Vietnam can get a Vietnam visa USA via two options. The first method is to apply for a visa at the Vietnam Embassy which is the traditional way. In addition, they can go for a new and more convenient way - Vietnam visa on arrival for US citizens through our Greenvisa.io service.

Visa requirements to Vietnam for US citizens

For those who would like to choose the second option, first you need to satisfy two basic Vietnam visa requirements for US citizens.

  • Having 6 months of validity remaining on your passport before the travel date, because you might be denied boarding with passport having less than 6 months of validity. In case the passport has long validity but without empty page, the airport customs official would grant you a loose-leaf visa.
  • Travelling to Vietnam by plane only. Vietnam visa US on arrival is available at 4 international airports in Vietnam.
  • Vietnam visa on arrival is categorize into tourist visa as well as business visa. The maximum visa duration for tourist visa is 3 months and 12 months for that of business visa. Notice that the visa takes effect from travel date written in application form, not from date of application. Therefore, visitors are recommended to apply for visa as soon as possible to avoid unexpected mistakes at the last minute. Please check our Vietnam visa guideline page to know more about its requirement.
