Does Nigerian Citizens Need Visa for Entering Vietnam or Not?

Nigerian citizens who wish to travel to Vietnam are required to obtain a Visa in order to enter the country. The Visa application process is quite simple and easy. Any Nigerian citizen who wishes to visit or stay in Vietnam can apply for Visa through two processes. They can either approach the embassy of Vietnam in Nigeria or apply online. Vietnam has its embassies in about 70 countries including Nigeria. 

When applying through the embassy, a Nigerian citizen is required to furnish a valid original passport, recent passport size photographs and a self addressed envelope. If you are a Nigerian citizen and you wish to travel to Vietnam, you can get in touch with the Vietnamese embassy to fill in your application. The officials at the embassy will help you fill up the required forms, submit relevant documents and make the mandatory payment. The procedure is quite simple and you can easily obtain your Visa before leaving for Vietnam with this procedure. 

However, this procedure has its drawbacks too. You will have to make multiple visits to the embassy in order to complete the application procedure. In case you are residing in a location which is far away from the embassy, travelling back and forth multiple times will require a lot of time and energy. Many people also find it difficult to send their valuable documents such as passports through postal mail. If you have such problems, then you can apply for Visa through online application procedure. 

The online application procedure for Visa on Arrival is much more convenient and faster. You will have to get in touch with a travel agent who can help you fill up the online form and collect your approval letter. While filling up the form, you will be required to key in essential personal details such as your name, occupation, purpose of visit, duration of stay etc. Once this information is processed, you will be sent a letter of approval, which needs to be deposited at the Visa on Arrival counter at any of the Vietnamese airports for collecting the Visa. 

It is important that you choose the right option for the purpose of your visit. There are three options such as business, tourism and transit. Business visa comes with a validity of one month, three months and six months. The tourist visa comes with a validity of one month and transit visa holds a validity of less than five days. You will also have to specify if you want a single entry or multiple entry Visa for Vietnam. 

Having all the necessary documents at the time of entry is absolutely essential as the lack of relevant documents can lead to denial of entry and immediate deportation. It is to be noted that the Visa on Arrival facility is extended only to those travellers who are arriving in Vietnam by air. Those who are taking a land route to Vietnam will have to carry their passport and Visa with them. If you are travelling on a cruise ship, you can get in touch with the cruise authorities for your Visa on Arrival.
