VFS Global has entered a partnership with the Embassy of Vietnam in launching the first official digital Vietnam eVisa on Arrival (eVOA) solution, with the signing of a MoU on cooperation for tourism promotion and facilitation of human mobility.
Eligible travellers can apply for the eVOA before departure to Vietnam by submitting their applications on https://vietnam.vfsevisa.com/.
Priority eVOA such as same day as well as next day approvals are also available on the portal for those who seek a visa urgently to travel to Vietnam.
These services cost approximately US$10-US$16 more than the normal visas, depending if they are for single or multiple entries into the country.
The digitally integrated solution will offer applicants an electronic wallet/locker; storing scanned copies of their passport, live facial biometric capture and receipt of their eVOA upon approval. Customers are also able to make payments online using the portal.
