Before you apply

In order to apply for a visa from Vietnam you must either be a citizen of Vietnam or Lao PDR, or legally reside in one of the two countries.

In Vietnam applicants for visa and residence permits submit their application at a visa application centre run by the external service provider VFS Global.

If you want someone to act on your behalf in connection with your application, you must authorize this person to do so. Please visit the UDI website for more information and the relevant form.
