Which Kind Of Vietnam Visa For US Citizens Travel To Vietnam 1 Month?

I’m an American citizen and I’m living in China. I’m going to travel to Vietnam in 1 month or longer, which kind of visa should I apply to enter Vietnam?

For American citizens, you can apply for 2 types of online visa which are Electronic Visa or Visa On Arrival. No matter where you are, you can totally apply for it via online without going to the Vietnam embassy or consulate.


Vietnamese government allows 80 countries and 2 territories to be able to apply for E-visa, and United States of America is in this list.

You just need to follow the guideline through a few simple steps via website of tourism agencies. After 48 working hours, you will get E-visa via email. Then you print it out and present it to enter Vietnam at the immigration counter.

E-visa allows travelers to be able to stay in Vietnam for not more than 30 days with single entry. Therefore, you can consider to apply for it. In your case, if you stay for more than 30 days, you can also extend your E-visa to stay longer and continue your trip.

In addition, E-visa is accepted to enter Vietnam through 8 international airports + 16 border gates + 9 sea ports. There are so many ways to visit Vietnam.

Visa On Arrival

This is also a type of online visa. Vietnamese government allows every citizen in the world to enter Vietnam with Visa On Arrival, so it is totally possible for American citizens to apply for it.

Visa On Arrival allows travelers to stay in Vietnam from 1 month to 12 months with single or multiple entry. Through a few simple steps via website and get the visa stamp at the airport, you can enter Vietnam easily.

Visa On Arrival is more functional than E-visa, so the way to make it is a little more complicated than E-visa. It is just more suitable in case you are going to stay in Vietnam more than 30 days and don’t want to take your time to extend visa as E-visa.

In addition, you also need to know that Visa On Arrival is just accepted through 6 international airports. If you are going to take a flight to go to Vietnam, this visa is a good choice:

  1. Noi Bai international airport in Hanoi city
  2. Tan Son Nhat international airport in Ho Chi Minh city
  3. Cam Ranh international airport in Nha Trang city
  4. Da Nang international airport in Da Nang city
  5. Cat Bi international airport in Hai Phong city
