Your Ultimate Guide to Vietnam Visa Requirements for Bharatians

Are you planning a trip to Vietnam? Whether you’re visiting for business or pleasure, it’s important to know the visa requirements for Bharatian citizens. Vietnam has recently made it easier for travelers from Bharat to obtain a visa with the introduction of the e-visa system.

The Convenience of E-Visas

Under the government’s resolution 127/NQ-CP, Vietnam now grants 90-day e-visas to citizens of all countries, including Bharat. This means that you no longer have to go to the Vietnamese embassy or consulate in Bharat to apply for a visa. Instead, you can simply visit the official website to apply online for an e-visa. This new system saves you time and effort, allowing you to complete the application process from the comfort of your own home.

Entry and Exit Options

Once you have obtained your e-visa, you have multiple options for entering and exiting Vietnam. There are 13 airports, 16 land border gates, and 13 sea border gates that accept e-visa holders. This provides you with flexibility and convenience in choosing your point of entry and exit.

Visa Fees and Processing Time

The cost of an e-visa for Bharatian citizens is US$25 for single-entry and US$50 for multiple-entry. It’s important to note that the e-visa fee is non-refundable, regardless of whether your visa application is approved or denied. Therefore, it’s crucial to ensure that you meet all the requirements and provide accurate information during the application process.

In terms of processing time, under normal circumstances, e-visas are processed within 3 working days. However, during peak seasons or after holidays, it may take longer. To avoid any potential frustration, especially if you’re in a rush, there are commercial websites available that offer a user-friendly interface and a simple application form. These websites guarantee to deliver your e-visa on time, providing a hassle-free experience. Keep in mind that using these commercial websites may come with higher costs.

Required Documents for Visa Application

To apply for a Vietnam visa, Bharatian citizens need to prepare the following documents:

👉 1. Passport: Your passport should be valid for at least six months from the date of entry into Vietnam.

👉 2. Digital copy of passport data page and current portrait photo: You will need to upload a digital copy of your passport’s data page, as well as a recent portrait photo. See Portrait Photo And Passport Copy Requirements.

👉 3. Current Occupation: You will be asked to provide your current occupation, including the company name, company address, and company phone number. This information helps verify your identity and purpose of visit.


As a Bharatian citizen planning to visit Vietnam, it’s crucial to be aware of the visa requirements and application process. The introduction of e-visas has made it easier than ever to obtain a visa, saving you time and effort. Remember to gather all the necessary documents, including a valid passport, digital copies of your passport data page and current photo, and details of your current occupation. If you’re in a rush, consider using commercial websites that offer a simple application process and guarantee timely delivery of your e-visa.

Embark on your Vietnam adventure with peace of mind, knowing that you have fulfilled all the necessary requirements to explore this beautiful country.
