Does Zimbabwe citizens need visa for entering Vietnam or not?

Yes, citizens of Zimbabwe need to have a proper visa for making any kind of trip to Vietnam. No matter what kind of journey you want to take, tourist, business or a mere short term stay, you need to possess a visa. Although, the Vietnam visa policy has given a few visa exemptions to the citizens of Zimbabwe under several, very particular situations. The following are some of the visa exemptions that you can avail –

1) To a diplomatic or official passport holder in Zimbabwe, a visa exemption has been granted for a maximum period of 90 days. If the passport holder wants to stay for more than 90 days, then a valid visa will be required.

2) If you are spouses or children to Vietnamese citizens, then the government of Vietnam allows you to apply for a visa exemption for as long as 5 years. For this, the applicants will need to submit all the necessary documents to establish their relationship.

3) In addition, if your children are under 14 years of age and share the passport with you then you do not to apply for a separate visa for your children.

5) All the tourists who enter into Vietnam with the destination as Phu Quoc islands get to enjoy a visa exemption of up to 30 days. If they wish to travel to other parts of the country or stay on the island for more than 30 days, then you will need to have a valid visa.

Acquire a complete knowledge of the exemptions criteria, before you go ahead and apply for a visa. A Zimbabwe citizen can apply for a Vietnamese visa in two ways – first is through an official embassy and the second is obtaining a Visa on arrival (VOA).  

For Embassy Visa:

Vietnam has established its official embassy in around 70 different nations, but Zimbabwe, as if now, does not have an embassy to look after the visa needs of the people here. Hence, obtaining an embassy visa is a little troublesome for the people here. In such a scenario, a Zimbabwe citizen needs to approach an embassy in the neighboring nations to complete the formalities and issue a Vietnam visa.

For VOA:

VOA is a brilliant way out for Zimbabwe citizens since there is no Vietnam embassy in their own nation. VOAs are applicable only for air routes and the entire process is very quick and cost effective. The online agents like us are efficient in getting VOAs for the aspiring travelers. Simply get online and fill up an application form along with a processing fee payment. The Vietnam immigration department issues an approval letter that enables you to land at the major Vietnam airports where the officials will stamp the visa for you. Hence, a VOA is the quickest and the most efficient way of getting a visa for Vietnam.
