An electronic visa is issued to a foreign citizen by the Ministry of Public Security of the Republic of Vietnam. To apply for electronic permission to enter Vietnam, you need to visit https://e-visa-vietnam.com/ and make a request.

After entering the country on such a visa, if you wish, you can once extend the period of stay in the country by obtaining an ordinary visa, contacting specialized companies, or travel agencies on the spot.
Every tourist who wants to visit Vietnam on an electronic visa must have with him the main document – a foreign passport.

Upon arrival in the country, this form, along with the remaining documents, is given to the passport control officer, who puts the corresponding stamp on it.
Top 3 best places to visit in Vietnam
Still not sure that a vacation in Vietnam is what suits you? We offer you a list of the most interesting places which you must see:
- Halong Bay
The karst seascape of Halong Bay is one of the most charming marine species in the world, which is appreciated by the inclusion of this place in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In the bay (which belongs to the Gulf of Tonkin) there are thousands of limestone islands. The wind and water that have affected them for millennia have turned islets into jagged rocks.
- Ho Chi Minh City
For fans of big cities, a visit to Vietnam would be incomplete without a visit to Ho Chi Minh City, which is the bustling commercial center of the country. Its streets are a crazy pile of motorcycles and cars. Its restaurants and cafes are amazingly diverse, and his shops are the best in the whole country.
The center of the city is a small and pleasant area of Donghoy, where most of the attractions are concentrated. Here you will find the City Museum with an excellent collection of artifacts related to the history of the city.
- Mỹ Sơn
Surrounded by wooded mountains, the Mỹ Sơn complex is the ruins of a temple city of the era of the ancient people, which dates back to the 4th century. It is an ancient Hindu religious center, which was actively used in the period from VII to X century.
It fell into decay only in the 13th century.
There are still about 20 temple structures built of brick based on sandstone. In their architectural style, the influence of various Asian civilizations is traced, including Indian and Malay.
Korea and Vietnam are also quite similar in culture to the country, so tourists from the “Land of the Morning Calm” will feel at home here, but at the same time, they will be able to fully enjoy the mild climate and high-quality hotel service.
We wish you an unforgettable holiday experience in Vietnam!
