Ways get visa Vietnam for a Comorian

There're 2 ways to get visa for entering Vietnam : 1/ Apply visa at embassy & 2/ Apply online to get approval for getting visa on arrival Vietnam.

- Unfortunately, No embassy of Vietnam in Comoros & Embassy of Vietnam in Countries Close to Comoros if you want to go : Tanzania & Mozambique

- Best way for a Comorian citizens to get visa for Vietnam without going to embassy : Apply for getting visa on arrival at international airport of Vietnam

For a citizen of Comoros, it is mandatory to have a valid visa in order to visit Vietnam. However, many countries are there who are exempted from having a visa to enter Vietnam, but unfortunately, Comoros is not among the list. Since 1996 rules are made more flexible and now Comoros citizens coming to Vietnam can collect their visa on arrival from the Vietnam airport. 

There are officially two ways to get a Vietnam visa from Comoros. 

• Visa from Vietnam Embassy - Since there is no Vietnam embassy in Comoros; one can get a visa from the embassy only if they travel to another country which has an embassy. It is recommended to apply for the visa via postal service for convenience. However, it is advised to first check with the embassy if they provide visa application via post.

• Online visa - This service is mainly for those who reside in Comoros but are not willing to go to another country just to visit an embassy. This is also a safe process as one doesn’t need to show passport while collecting the visa. This process is also termed as Vietnam visa on arrival process. If one chooses this procedure he/she can apply for the visa via a tourist agent or a tourism company online. The issuing department of the visa is the Vietnam Immigration Department. The processing time needed is 1-2 business days at the most. 

How to collect Vietnam visa on arrival?

There are many online sites available for applying visa on arrival to Vietnam. These sites provide online application forms. One just needs to fill up the form correctly, pay the service charge via credit card or internet banking. One generally has to wait for 2 business days, but if the requirement is urgent, one can avail the express services. In that case, the approval letter may reach within 8, 4 or 2 business hours, as per the requirement of the client. The next important step is to collect the actual visa from the Vietnam International Airport. The documents needed for collection are:

• Copy of approval letter.

• Valid Passport

• 2 passport size pictures.

• A few US dollars to pay for the stamping.

Things to remember

The second method i.e. Vietnam visa on arrival is only applicable to the people having a Comoros passport and travelling by air. If one plans to visit Vietnam by some other transport, then one needs to collect the visa directly from the Vietnam Embassy. In such cases, make sure that the passport is valid for minimum of 6 months. This way of getting a Vietnam visa is not much preferred due to its long processing time and it is also not cost effective either.

It is to be duly noted that the approval letter received after applying for visa online, is not the actual visa. The actual visa is to be collected on arrival at the Vietnam airport; where one has to give this approval letter and get the visa in return.
