You are applying for a visa to Vietnam, and wondering whether you should apply for a single entry visa or a multiple entry visa? The following explanation about the difference between these two kinds of visa will help you decide.
If you get a single-entry visa, you are allowed to enter and exit Vietnam one time only during the visa validity. Once you leave Vietnam, even before the granted expiry date, your visa will automatically become invalid and if you want to go back Vietnam, you need to apply for a new visa. This kind of visa is also called “a visa with single use”.
For example, if you apply for a 1-month single entry visa to Vietnam, you are allowed to enter and exit Vietnam ONCE only during 30 days since your pre-registered arrival date.
But in case you get a multiple entry visa, you are allowed to have several stays in Vietnam during your visa validity. It means that with this kind of visa, you can leave Vietnam and then re-enter the country during the visa period without applying for a new one.
For example, if you apply for a 3-month multiple entry visa, you are allowed to allowed to enter and exit Vietnam multiple times within 90 days since you registered arrival date.
To facilitate US citizens to travel and work, recently, the National Assembly of Vietnam has ratified the Verified Agreement on the issuance of visas between the two Governments of the United States. Accordingly, the Government of Vietnam grants a visa for up to one year, several times for US citizens to enter Vietnam (multiple entry) for the purposes of travel, seminars, conferences, private functions or working with organizations, enterprises in Vietnam and meet other conditions for entry into Vietnam in accordance with the law of Vietnam. In contrast, the US government also applies the same policy to Vietnamese.
