Long Term Visas
It is now easier than ever to stay in Vietnam for an extended time. We know: You have heard the terrible stories of expats who leave the country every 3 months travel to Cambodia or Thailand for a weekend get a new visa and return – only to repeat the whole process all over again in 3 more months.
well it is just not necessarily true
we can get you a visa of any length 1 month to 3 years. With a multi-year visa, you can just enjoy your stay. No longer to you have to leave the country; no longer do you have to deal with government bureaucracy every 3 months or even pay additional fees. Do it once and be done with it.
All you need to do
For renewal visas
If you are in the country and have a valid Vietnam visa (even if it will soon expire): just bring us 3 things:
- your passport
- a recent passport-style picture (available at most photography studios)
- one half of the total fee
We will return your passport and new visa or residency card within 2 weeks (and you will pay the remaining portion of the cost at that time)
For first time visas
If you are not in Vietnam you must apply for a new visa (even if you have had one previously. the same if your visa has expired (although we do not recommend being in country with an expired visa). We can get you a "visa on entry". With this visa you need send us (electronically will do):
- a photocopy of the data page of your passport
- a passport-style picture
- the fees for processing
We will send you what is called an “invitation letter”, which includes the needed reference letter. When you arrive at the point of entry, you show this letter to the customs official and your visa will be entered only your passport. There will be an additional consular fee payable at that point. You never have to surrender your passport
Frequently asked questions
I thought only certain select people could qualify for long term visas?
While it is true that there are special visas for those people who have businesses here, or are gainfully employed or who are married to Vietnamese citizens, it is also possible for any ordinary person to get an extended-term visa.
Isn't it expensive?
Well, it does cost more to get a long term visa than a short term visa but if you compare the cost of a 3 year visa to the cost of getting a new 3 month visa 12 times over 3 years, it is not much more — and if you include the cost of leaving the country to get your renewal , the long tern visa may be even cheaper.
But am afraid of being without my passport?
Your passport is indeed a very valuable document. For that reason we keep it in your possession the greatest possible time.
- When you are out of the country and applying for a new visa, you do not surrender your passport at all. In particular you will have it with you when you enter Vietnam (or any other country en route)
- When you are in-country and applying for an extension visa, you will have to entrust your passport to us for 1 to 2 weeks. We will give you a receipt indicating that we have it. And you will get it back at the same time your receive the new visa (about 1-2 weeks)
