Are you travelling to Vietnam? Great! The visa application form for this country is one of the easier ones. It is only one page long and pretty straightforward. Let’s get right into it.
Filling out the visa application form
Firstly, the photo. Your photo needs to be glued to the form in the designated place in the top right corner. Photo dimensions are indicated in the brackets, so your photo should either be 3×4 or 4×6. It needs to be a colour photograph, with a light background and with a clear full-face. Wearing dark glasses and head covers are allowed only for religious reasons. Make sure you glue the photo correctly and firmly.
Now on to the questions. The first six questions are considering your personal information, such as your name, date of birth, nationality, etc.
In case you have a sponsor, you need to provide information about them in question 7.
The next couple of questions are about your passport, specifically what is the type of your passport, passport number and when does it expire.
The rest of the questions are about your trip to Vietnam. Here you need to write down the dates of entry and exit, the purpose of the visit, port of arrival.
In the end, you just need to put your signature and the date.
Underneath is the space for embassy employees, so please do not write anything there.
Additional visa documents
Besides the correctly filled visa application form, to travel to Vietnam you will also need an original valid passport. The passport needs to have at least 6 months of the remaining validity from the date of entry in Vietnam. You also need to have two blank pages in your passport. These requirements are same both for tourist and business visas, the single entry for one or three months, as well as for the multiple entry visa for one month.
In case you wish to get granted a tourist or business multiple visa for 3 months you will need the following documents:
1. Transportation confirmation – air ticket booking record (round trip), eticket, train ticket, ship…;
2. Hotel reservation – hotel reservations must be detailed with dates and address where you are staying in Vietnam;
3. Passport – the original passport with at least six months of remaining validity at the time of entry and 2 blank visa pages;

-Authorisation to travel for minors signed by both parents or legal guardians;
