Mistakes to avoid when applying for an e-visa to Vietnam
As it is very easy to obtain an e-visa to Vietnam, you may make small mistakes during your application that may delay your approval. Therefore, our team of experts lists the main ways to make mistakes and how to avoid them when applying for an e-visa.
- Avoid sending the application form without having reviewed the data you have entered. Especially the passport number, email and phone number, these data are key as they allow the team of experts to communicate with you and the passport number which identifies you abroad, if any of the data is misspelled, it will delay the approval process.
- The credit card must be enabled for online payments, this is important because when you cancel the service expenses, it will fail and it is not due to lack of funds but for not having the option enabled. To correct this, you only have to enter your bank’s website and enable the online payment option.
- When filling out the form, the reason for the trip must be specified, since a Spanish citizen can travel to Vietnam for two reasons, the first for business and the second for tourism. It is wrong when a Spanish citizen plans to move to this country with an e-visa since this travel authorization does not have such a purpose.
- Although the approval time is fast, the maximum is 72 hours, don’t wait until the last minute to apply for your e-visa to Vietnam. Ideally, you should apply for the electronic travel authorization, then purchase the plane tickets and make the hotel reservations, however, if you have left the application until the last minute, you can contact customer service 96 hours in advance so they can help you with the approval process.
