Are you a U.S. Citizen traveling to Vietnam?

You may obtain a Vietnamese visa in three ways:  (1) in advance from a Vietnamese consulate or Embassy; (2) a Vietnamese single-entry e-visa at the website of Vietnam Immigration Department (please view our E-visa Application Steps for more instructions); (3) or you may obtain a written approval letter for a visa upon arrival.  To obtain a written approval letter, you must contact a travel agency prior to departure for Vietnam.  Please also note that to enter Vietnam, you need a valid U.S. passport with at least six months validity remaining beyond the date of your arrival.  For more information, please view our Country Specific Information.
