How to Apply for Vietnam Visa for Ecuadorian Citizens?

Fortunately, there are currently 02 ways to get a Vietnam visa for Ecuador passport holders: apply for an embassy visa or apply for a visa on arrival.

1. Apply for an embassy visa

With this option, the Ecuadorian travelers need to contact an embassy/consulate office of Vietnam. However, there is currently no embassy/consulate of Vietnam established in Ecuador. As such:

  • In case you are in Ecuador, contact the Vietnam embassy/consulate in Ecuador’s nearby country. You can see the list here.
  • In case you are in a country having an office of Vietnam embassy/consulate, contact them for your visa application.

As a holder of Ecuador passport, if you are traveling to Vietnam by land border crossing, applying for a visa via the embassy is the single option for you. However, in case you are traveling to Vietnam by air, we highly recommend the second option below.

2. Apply online for Visa on arrival (Recommended)

Visa on arrival (VOA) is highly recommended and considered the easiest way to get a visa for Ecuadorian citizens traveling to Vietnam by air as its requires no contact with the embassy of Vietnam, and therefore, creating much convenience for those in Ecuador or living far from the embassy.

Fill out the secure online application form, and make payment of service fee;
Receive the visa approval letter by email, normally in 2 working days (for tourist visa) or 7 working days (for business visa);
