What is the difference between a single and a multiple entry visa?

A single entry visa allows to enter and exit Vietnam just once during the visa validity. Once you leave Vietnam, even before the visa’s expiry date, the visa automatically becomes invalid. You are required to apply for a new visa if you want to come back to Vietnam.

For example, if you apply for a 1-month single entry visa, you are allowed to enter and exit Vietnam only ONCE from your pre-registered arrival date & the visa will automatically expire within 30 days from your pre-registered arrival date.

A multiple entry visa allows to enter and exit Vietnam multiple times during the visa’s validity. It means that with this kind of visa, you can leave then re-enter the country during the visa’s validity without applying for a new one.

For example, if you apply for a 1-month multiple entry visa, you are allowed to enter and exit Vietnam multiple times within 30 days from your pre-registered arrival date.

Note for a multiple entry visa on arrival, you need to select the port of arrival for your first arrival to pick up your visa there. After picked up the visa, you can re-enter Vietnam at any ports you want as long as your visa still valid.

The Visa Approval letter is the letter approved, signed & red sealed by the Vietnam Immigration Department (Vietnam Government). It allows you board and pick up your visa on arrival at any of the four international airports of Vietnam.

Visa On Arrival (VOA) is one of the several visa types issued by the Vietnamese Immigration Department to foreigners intending to enter the country.

Please note that unlike the visa on arrival of some other countries, in order to get Vietnam’s Visa On Arrival, you must have a visa approval letter from the Immigration Department of Vietnam. This allows you to pick up your visa on arrival at the international airport of Vietnam.

With the visa approval letter, you can get your Vietnam visa at the international airports of Vietnam, such as Noi Bai airport (Ha Noi city), Tan Son Nhat airport (Ho Chi Minh City city), Cam Ranh airport (Nha Trang city) and Da Nang airport (Da Nang city).

The e-visa is an alternative to a paper-based visa issued by the embassies of Vietnam. Instead of applying for a visa at the embassies of Vietnam, the Immigration Department of Vietnam has now launched an E-VISA program, which enables you to apply for a visa online.
