- The applicant must also not fall into any of the cases for suspension from entry as specified in Vietnamese law.
- With those conditions satisfied, the applicant then needs to fill out an online visa application form and submit a scanned copy of the biographical page of their passport together with one passport photo taken within the past six months.
- The applicant will also have to pay a visa service fee.
