Does North Korean Citizens Need Visa For Entering Vietnam or Not? We wish to inform you that North Korea passport holders are required Vietnam visas to enter Vietnam.

Vietnam offers Visa facility to all North Korean citizens who wish to visit the country for trade or tourism purposes. Any North Korean citizen who holds a valid and original passport can apply for Visa to Vietnam. There are two simple methods in which a North Korean citizen can apply for Visa to Vietnam. The first method is by getting in touch with the Embassy of Vietnam in North Korea. The second method is by filling up an online application form for Visa on Arrival. Both procedures are simple and Visa can easily be obtained by either methods. 

The Embassy of Vietnam can help you easily apply for the Visa. You will have to personally visit the embassy where the embassy officials will take you through a step by step procedure for filling up of the application form, submission of relevant documents and payment of mandatory fees. You will have to fill in all details clearly and accurately in the form. Along with the duly filled form, you will be required to submit documents such as your original and valid passport, a recent passport sized photograph and a self-addressed envelope. Your documents will be submitted at the embassy for further processing. 

It is important to remember that you must apply for Visa at least six months ahead of your departure. You need to hold a valid North Korean passport with six months validity and a few pages left for stamping. You will also be required to pay Visa fees along with submitting your documents. You can easily pay this fee in favour of the Embassy of Vietnam by way of money order or cashier’s cheque. Once the documents are processed, you will be sent the Visa document by post. You can easily carry this document with you to enter into Vietnam.

However, there are certain drawbacks to this system. If you live in a location that is far away from the embassy location, you will have to travel back and forth several times as this method requires you to personally visit the embassy multiple times till the process is complete. This will incur a lot of expenditure in terms of travel. Also, your original passport will be forwarded ahead by the embassy officials by postal mail which can also result in loss of your documents due to misplacement. 

The Visa on Arrival method is much more convenient as compared to the embassy method. In order to apply for Visa on Arrival, you will have to get in touch with a travel agent in Vietnam. You can fill up the Visa application online and make the payment to the travel agent online too. This saves you the trouble of unnecessary travel. Once the document is processed, you will be issued a letter of approval. Your travel agent can collect and forward you this document. 

On reaching Vietnam, you can submit this letter of approval at the Visa on Arrival counter at the airport you arrive in along with the Visa stamping fees to obtain your Visa. It is to be noted that the Visa on Arrival facility is applicable to only those who arrive in Vietnam by air.
