Exploring Vietnam: A Guide for Brunei Citizens on the New 90-Day E-Visas

Visiting the enchanting country of Vietnam has become even easier for citizens of Brunei. As of August 15, 2023, citizens of Brunei can now apply for a 90-day e-visa, thanks to the government’s resolution 127/NQ-CP. This exciting update eliminates the need for applicants to go to the Vietnamese embassy or consulate, as the entire process can now be completed online. Let’s delve into the details of this new e-visa system and explore the benefits it offers.

Applying for a Vietnam e-visa

With the implementation of the new e-visa system, citizens of Brunei can now conveniently apply for their Vietnam e-visa online. The process is simple and user-friendly, ensuring a hassle-free experience. By visiting the official website, applicants can fill out the necessary forms and submit the required documents electronically. Gone are the days of waiting in long queues or dealing with time-consuming paperwork at the embassy or consulate.

Cost and Validity

Obtaining a Vietnam e-visa comes with a nominal fee. For a single-entry e-visa, citizens of Brunei will pay US$25, while a multiple-entry e-visa costs US$50. It’s important to note that the e-visa fee is non-refundable, regardless of whether the application is approved or denied. However, the convenience of the e-visa system and the extended validity period can more than make up for the cost.

Extended Validity and Multiple Entries

One of the most valuable aspects of the new e-visa system is the extended validity period of 90 days. This allows citizens of Brunei to explore the captivating beauty of Vietnam at their own pace, without the need to rush their travels. Moreover, the e-visa allows for multiple entries, making it even more convenient for those who wish to travel to neighboring countries and return to Vietnam without the hassle of applying for a new visa each time.

Entry Points

Vietnam is well-prepared to welcome e-visa holders from Brunei. There are a total of 13 airports, 16 land border gates, and 13 sea border gates that accept e-visas. This wide range of entry points ensures that visitors can easily access Vietnam from various locations, enhancing the overall travel experience.

Processing Time

In most cases, the processing time for a Vietnam e-visa is three working days. However, during peak seasons or after holidays, it may take slightly longer. To avoid potential frustration for visitors in a rush, there are commercial websites available that offer expedited services for a higher cost. These platforms provide a user-friendly interface and a simple application form, ensuring that e-visas are delivered on time.


The introduction of the 90-day e-visa for citizens of Brunei is a significant step towards enhancing travel convenience and promoting tourism between Vietnam and Brunei. With the ability to apply for the e-visa online, visitors can save time and effort, allowing them to focus on fully immersing themselves in the vibrant culture and breathtaking landscapes of Vietnam. Whether it’s a solo adventure or a family vacation, the extended validity and multiple entries offered by the e-visa system make Vietnam an enticing destination for citizens of Brunei. So, pack your bags and get ready to embark on an unforgettable journey to Vietnam!
