Does Pakistani Citizens Need Visa for Entering Vietnam or not?

Pakistani Citizens are required to apply for Visa if they wish to travel to Vietnam. Vietnam has its diplomatic missions in about 70 countries and Pakistan is one of them. If you are a Pakistani citizen or  Pakistani passport holder, you are required to apply for Visa in order to travel to Vietnam. There are two ways in which you can apply for Visa. The first is by approaching the embassy of Vietnam in Pakistan and personally putting in an application for Visa. 

You can get in touch with the embassy officials who will take you through a step by step procedure on submission of required documents and payment of mandatory fees. This procedure will require you to submit your original passport, recent passport size photographs and a self-addressed envelope for receiving the Visa. Along with these documents, you will also have to pay the mandatory Visa fees, which can paid by money order or cashier’s cheque addressed to the Embassy of Vietnam. This procedure has its own benefits. The embassy takes about five working days to process your documents and send you the Visa. This way you will have the Visa in your hand before you leave for Vietnam. 

However, if you are located in an area far away from the embassy location or do not have the time to spare for multiple visits or do not want to send your passport by postal mail, you can always apply online for Visa on Arrival. Visa on Arrival is an easier, more convenient and quicker process. You will have to get in touch with a travel agent in Vietnam to apply for the Visa on Arrival document. You will have to fill up an online application form, which will require you to key in your personal details such as name, occupation, purpose of visit, duration of stay etc. After the information is processed, you will be sent an approval letter, which can be collected and mailed by your travel agent. 

On landing at any of the Vietnam airports, you will have to show this approval letter at the Visa on Arrival counter along with the Visa stamping fees to collect your Visa. While applying for Visa you will have to choose from three options – business, tourist and transit Visa. Business Visa comes with a validity of one, three and six months. Tourist visa allows you a period of only one month. Transit visa comes with a validity of less than five days, after which the person will have to move to a third country. 

It is important that you specify what kind of entry facilities you need. Usually, the Visa issued by the embassy of Vietnam is for single entry. However, if you need multiple entry or wish to enter Vietnam from a different country, you will have to apply for the same in your application and pay additional fees for the same. It is important for you to carry all the required documents while travelling to Vietnam otherwise you may be denied entry and can even face immediate deportation.
