Hanh Pham Last update: Aug 26, 2019

Vietnam visa single entry visa is the visa type that applicants can use to enter and exit Vietnam ONE time only during valid duration of visa. Multiple entries visa, in contrast, can be used to enter and exit Vietnam more than one time within 1 month or 3 months. Vietnam visa single entry visa is the visa type whose holders can enter and exit Vietnam ONE time only during the visa validity, and then when they exit Vietnam, even before the granted exit date, the visa will automatically become expired and stamped as “USED”. As such it is also called one-time visa for Vietnam.
