Can I use traveller’s paper or Emergency Passport instead of Original Passport to apply for a visa to Vietnam?

Hello Vietnam-visa. I’m Sophia, being born and currently living in Canada. I’m planning to travel Vietnam next months. I know you ‘re vietnam visa provider. I have one question which need your help.


Dear Sophia, 

There are 2 ways to apply visa to Vietnam for Canadian citizens, including Vietnam Embassy Visa and VOA Vietnam (Vietnam Visa On Arrival). Both of them requires your orginal passport to complete your application for a legitimate visa. 

So you can’t use any alternative documents such as Traveller’s paper or Emergency Passport for a visa to Vietnam.

If you currently still possess your passport and fear of losing it during visa application process, we recommend you choose VOA Vietnam method to get Vietnam Visa Application in Canada. By this way, you don’t need to send the original passport away just like you have to do when applying visa through Vietnam Embassy in Ottawa

If you have just lost your passport and plan to travel Vietnam in the near future, you should renew your Canadian passport through the Government of Canada or any other agencies for urgent request. Detailed application requirements can be referred through:
