The Central African citizens:

  • Can apply online for visa on arrival if they are traveling to Vietnam by air.

1. Get embassy visa

This way of visa application for Vietnam requires the Central African citizens to directly contact the Vietnam embassy/consulate. However, there is no embassy/consulate of Vietnam in Central Africa up to now, as such, Central African citizens can contact

  • the local Vietnam embassy/consulate in nearby countries (if they are not residing in Central Africa currently) ( those embassies/consulates are listed here), or
  • an embassy/consulate of Vietnam in the country they are residing in (outside Central Africa).

In this way, they will get visa stamp on passport before departure for Vietnam.

2. Get visa on arrival

This option to get a Vietnamese visa is highly recommended for citizens of Central Africa as it requires:

  • NO travel or contact with the embassy;
  • NO documents for application;
  • ONLY a device connected with internet.

With VOA, the Central African applicants will get a visa approval letter via email before departure for Vietnam, and finally get visa stamped upon arrival at Vietnam airport.

To get the letter, please send a soft copy of your Central African passport to our email Support@Vietnam-visa.com or send your request below. Our staff will get back to you soon with further assistance.
