Informative articles about Vietnam visa and travelling
Overstaying Vietnam visa will not only expose foreign visitors to administrative penalties but also leave a bad impression on the Immigration Department's records and make their return to Vietnam next time more difficult. So, it is best to avoid it in the first place and in case foreigners want to stay in Vietnam longer than the visa term, we recommend extending your visa.
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the visa extension method without leaving Vietnam is a safe option for foreign visitors, because they can:
avoid the risk of being infected by a virus due to going to a crowd,
avoid the risk of being banned from re-entry to Vietnam if you depart or transit through one of the areas infected with the virus.
To extend Vietnam visa, please ensure your original passport:
Valid for at least 06 months from the time of extension
There are at least 02 blank pages.
Extension of visa means that tourists will be allowed to continue to stay in Vietnam for a certain period of time without having to leave Vietnam and re-enter Vietnam.
If the visa is extended, foreign visitors will be given a stamp or visa sticker of the passport name extension showing the new stay period on it.
Visa extension fee in Vietnam depends on the type of original visa, how long foreign visitors want to extend as well as the usual processing time or urgently. Currently, visitors to Vietnam on a visa-free, 1-month or 3-month visa can extend their stay for an additional 15 days, 1 month or 3 months. Particularly visitors to Vietnam under a 5-year visa exemption can extend up to 6 months.
