What kind of Vietnam visa for US citizens should I apply?

Greetings from Liam, an US citizen. I’m travelling Vietnam first time and heard about Vietnam Visa On Arrival.


Dear Liam, 

Thanks for finding to solve this concern. 

You should choose the suitable type of Vietnam visa depending on your trip purpose & Vietnam staying duration. 

For leisure/ tourism purpose, you can select one of these 5 types of Vietnam visa for US citizens:

  • 1 month single entry
  • 3 months single entry 
  • 1 month multiple entry
  • 1 year multiple entry (Available for United States citizens only)
  • 3 months multiple entry

For business purpose, you can select 1 of these 6 types:

  • 1 month single entry
  • 3 months single entry 
  • 1 month multiple entry
  • 1 year multiple entry
  • 3 months multiple entry
  • 6 months multiple entry

There is a big difference between a single entry visa and a multiple entry visa for Vietnam which lies in number of entries into the country.

  • Single entry visa: You are permitted to enter Vietnam ONCE during your visa validity. After you exit Vietnam, your visa will automatically become invalid. If you wish to re-enter, you need to apply for a new visa or a multiple entry visa right from beginning.
  • Multiple entry visa: You can enter and exit Vietnam many times as you want during your visa validity.

Kindly be noted that you can not enter and exit exact date of entry and exit filling in the visa application. You can arrive and exit Vietnam on any date within this visa duration. So, if you are not quite sure about your date of arrival, just choose some day earlier than your planned arrival date.
