VIETNAM VISA FOR COLOMBIAN CITIZENS

Introduction to Vietnam Visas for Colombian citizens

As of February 1st, 2020, citizens of Colombia wishing to visit Vietnam for tourism or business purposes are required to obtain a visa in advance. There are two main ways to do this: through a Vietnamese embassy or consulate, or by applying for an e-Visa online.

The process for applying for a visa at a Vietnamese embassy or consulate is as follows:

  1. Fill out the application form available on the embassy or consulate’s website.
  2. Submit the completed application form, along with two passport photos and your passport, to the embassy or consulate.
  3. Pay the visa fee (this will vary depending on the type of visa you are applying for).
  4. Wait for your visa to be processed (this can take up to 10 working days). Once your visa is ready, you will need to pick it up from the embassy or consulate in person.

For Colombian citizens who wish to apply for an e-Visa, the process is as follows:

  1. Go to khach-hang and fill out the online application form. Be sure to have your passport handy, as you will need to upload a copy of its information page when completing the form.
  2. Once you have submitted your application, you will need to pay the visa fee using a credit or debit

Who needs a visa to travel to Vietnam?

As a Colombian citizen, you will need a visa to travel to Vietnam. There are two types of visas available: a tourist visa and a business visa. You can apply for either type of visa at the Vietnamese Embassy or Consulate in Colombia. The process for applying for a visa is the same for both types of visas.

First, you will need to fill out an application form. You can get this form from the Vietnamese Embassy or Consulate, or you can download it from their website. Make sure that you fill out the form completely and accurately. Incomplete or inaccurate forms will be rejected. MOVING TO VIETNAM AS EXPAT

Next, you will need to submit your application form, along with a passport-sized photo and your passport. You may also be required to submit additional documents, such as proof of travel insurance or proof of onward travel. Once your application is complete, submit it to the Vietnamese Embassy or Consulate.

Visa processing times vary depending on the embassy or consulate, but it generally takes about 1-2 weeks for a decision to be made on your application. Once your visa is approved, you will be asked to pay a visa fee. This fee must be paid in cash, and it is non-refundable. After paying the fee, you will receive your visa, which will allow you to stay in Vietnam for up to 30 days.

What documents are needed to obtain a visa?

As a Colombian citizen, you will need to submit the following documents in order to obtain a visa for Vietnam:

  1. A valid passport with at least six months of remaining validity and at least two blank pages.
  2. A completed visa application form. 3. One recent passport-sized photograph (4cm x 6cm).
  3. An onward/return ticket or proof of sufficient financial means to purchase one.
  4. A letter of invitation from a Vietnamese host or sponsoring organization, if applicable.
  5. Visa issuance fee (paid in cash or via bank transfer).
  6. Any other supporting documents as required by the Vietnamese embassy or consulate where you are applying for your visa (such as proof of travel insurance, business license, etc.).

How long does it take to get a Vietnam visa?

The process of obtaining a Vietnam visa can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the method you choose and the country you are applying from. For Colombian citizens, there are two main options for getting a Vietnam visa: applying for one at a Vietnamese embassy or consulate, or applying for an e-visa online.

If you choose to apply for a visa at a Vietnamese embassy or consulate, the processing time is usually around 5-10 working days. However, it is important to note that not all embassies and consulates offer this service, so you will need to check with your nearest one to see if they do. If they do not offer the service, you will need to apply for an e-visa instead.

Applying for an e-visa is the quickest and most convenient way to get a Vietnam visa as a Colombian citizen. The whole process can be completed online in just a few minutes, and your visa will be emailed to you within 3 working days. There is no need to visit an embassy or consulate, making it ideal for those who are short on time or live in remote areas.

How much does it cost to get a Vietnam visa?

The cost of a Vietnam visa for Colombian citizens is $25 USD for a single entry visa, $50 USD for a multiple entry visa, and $95 USD for a business visa. The cost of a visa may vary depending on the type of visa and the length of stay.

Where can I apply for a visa?

There are two ways to apply for a visa to Vietnam for Colombian citizens:

1) Apply for a visa at the Vietnamese embassy or consulate in Colombia. This can be done in person, by mail, or online.

2) Apply for an e-visa through the official website of the Vietnamese government.

For either option, you will need to submit some required documents, including a passport that is valid for at least 6 months from your date of arrival in Vietnam, a completed visa application form, and one passport-sized photo. You may also be required to provide proof of onward travel and/or proof of financial means.

If you are applying for a visa at the embassy/consulate, you will need to pay the visa fee with a cashier’s check or money order. If you are applying for an e-visa, you can pay the fee online with a credit card.


The processing time for both options is typically 3-5 business days, but it can vary depending on the embassy/consulate or website where you apply.

What is the validity period of the Vietnamese visas?

The validity period of a Vietnamese visa is the length of time during which the visa holder is allowed to stay in Vietnam. The typical validity period for a Vietnamese visa is 30 days, although some visas may be issued with shorter or longer validity periods.

What is the process of applying for a visa on arrival (VOA)?

If you are a Colombian citizen, you can apply for a visa on arrival (VOA) to Vietnam. The process is as follows:

  1. You must have a valid passport with at least six months remaining before expiration and two blank pages.
  2. You must have an onward or return ticket.
  3. You must have proof of sufficient funds to cover your stay in Vietnam.
  4. You must complete the online application form and pay the visa fee.
  5. You will receive a confirmation email with your Approval Letter attached. Print out the Approval Letter and bring it with you when you travel to Vietnam.
