How to Apply for Vietnam Visa for American Samoa Citizens?

American Samoa citizens and passport holders can choose one of the following two methods to apply for a Vietnam visa:

1. Apply at Local Vietnam Embassy

In this way of visa application, the American Samoa passport holders will get the visa stamped on passports before departure for Vietnam. The visa issuing authority is the Vietnam Embassy/Consulate.

The issue for Albanians to get visa this way is that there is currently no embassy/consulate of Vietnam established in American Samoa. As such, if they are in Albania, it is quite difficult for them to get a Vietnamese visa this way, and therefore they need to visit the embassy in nearby countries for visa application. See their list here.

If they are in a country with one of such offices, they can completely contact them for visa application.

The requirements, processing time and fees to get a embassy visa to Vietnam may vary by the embassy.
