Yes. Botswana passport holders are REQUIRED to get a valid visa to enter Vietnam. They will need a tourist visa for a holiday in Vietnam, but a business visa for a business trip.
Additionally, to enter Vietnam smoothly, they also need to meet the following entry requirements:
There are currently two (02) ways to get a tourist/business visa to Vietnam for Botswana citizens.
Botswana passport holders MUST obtain Vietnam visa this way if they are traveling to Vietnam by sea or land border crossing.
To get visa this way, the citizens of Botswana MUST directly contact the Vietnamese embassy/consulate.
Visa on arrival is the easiest way to get a visa to Vietnam for Botswana citizens traveling to Vietnam by air as they will not need to contact any office of Vietnamese embassy/consulate.
With VOA, Botswana passport holders will get a visa approval letter via email before departure for Vietnam, and finally get visa stamped upon arrival at Vietnam airport. The process to get the letter is completely done online with an internet-connected device.
To get the letter, please send a soft copy of your Botswana passport to our email Support@Vietnam-visa.com | Sales@Vietnam-visa.com or send your request below. Our staff will get back soon with further assistance.
The Vietnam visa fees for holders of Botswana passport vary depending on the way of visa application.
