UAE citizens should apply for a Vietnam visa at least 07 days in advance of their travel date because the processing time for electronic visa applications for Vietnam is typically three working days. For UAE visitors who want their visas in a matter of hours, Vietnam Immigration Services also offers the Rush visa service. This service allows UAE travelers to receive their visa for Vietnam in just 24 hours. UAE applicants should carefully review all the information they have supplied in the application form. This is crucial since any typos or mismatched information could cause the delay on processing.
UAE passport holders should have the following documents at hand to meet the visa requirements for Vietnam electronic visas:
- A passport issued by the UAE Government that is valid for at least six months beyond the planned arrival date in Vietnam.
- There should be at least two blank pages in the passport for stamping by the Immigration Officer at a border checkpoint.
- A scanned copy of the biographical page from the passport (with full information, not missing any details or lines)
- 01 photograph (in any size you have available) for each individual. It must be in color with the full face of applicants wearing formal clothes.
