The visa issuing authority in this way is the embassy or consulate of Vietnam abroad.

In this way, the Iraq citizens are required to directly contact an office of Vietnam embassy/consulate for visa application.

  • Those living in Greenland need to contact the Vietnam embassy/consulate in nearby countries as there is currently no office of Vietnam embassy/consulate in Iraq (Those offices are listed here)

The embassy visa is the single way to get a visa for Iraqi citizens who are traveling to Vietnam by:

  • Bus,
  • Train, or
  • Cruise

In case they are traveling to Vietnam, they should choose the following option for convenience.

2. Get Visa on Arrival (Recommended)

The best way to get a visa for visitors from Iraq (including Iraqi citizens and passport holders) who are traveling to Vietnam by air is to get Visa on Arrival (VOA) as it requires no travel or contact with the embassy for application.

With VOA, you 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.
