Frequently asked questions

I’m in USA. Please kindly let me know the difference between a single entry visa and a multiple entry visa?

Please be kindly informed that there is a big difference between a single entry visa and a multiple entry visa for Vietnam which lies in number of entries into the country.

  • Single entry visa: You are permitted to enter Vietnam ONCE during your visa validity. After you exit Vietnam, your visa will automatically become invalid. If you wish to re-enter, you need to apply for a new visa or a multiple entry visa right from beginning.
  • Multiple entry visa: You can enter and exit Vietnam many times as you want during your visa validity.

As Vietnam visa on arrival works at any of 5 international airports of Vietnam, consisting of Noi Bai (Hanoi), Cat Bi (Hai Phong), Da Nang (Da Nang), Cam Ranh (Khanh Hoa) and Tan Son Nhat (Ho Chi Minh City), there will be no problem if you switch your arrival airport among them.
