Ways to get visa Vietnam for French citizen

The Vietnamese government waived 15 days visa requirements for travelers coming from certain countries, including France. However, Vietnam introduced a new rule requiring those travelers to have a visa upon re-entry to the country within 30 days of their last departure.

There're 2 ways to get visa for entering Vietnam :

1/ Apply visa at Embassy of Vietnam in France in person at location as below :

- Address: 62 rue Boileau, 75016 Paris, France

- Website : www.ambassade-vietnam.fr

2/ Or if you don't want to go to embassy location, you can apply online to get approval for getting visa on arrival Vietnam.

The Vietnamese government waived 15 days visa requirements for travelers coming from certain countries, including France. However, Vietnam introduced a new rule requiring those travelers to have a visa upon re-entry to the country within 30 days of their last departure. The government's intent is to control foreigners who come and go repeatedly within a short period of time in an attempt to work in Vietnam illegally.

Vietnam has a distinct visa policy in place that has stated very clearly the guidelines for entry and exit of the people to and from Vietnam. As per this policy, residents of France need to obtain a valid visa before embarking on a journey to Vietnam. However, to strengthen the democratic bonds, Vietnam has still given certain exemptions to the French, provided they fall under these well-defined criteria. Get in touch with the embassy to get a complete understanding of these exemption criteria.

The French and Vietnamese Governments have been into a democratic relationship for around 40 years now and hence have simplified the procedure for securing a visa largely. For French citizens to obtain a Vietnamese visa two ways are available – via the embassy and via online agents for a VOA.

Applying for a visa at the embassy:

The Vietnam embassy is situated in the city of Paris and works from Monday to Friday. In order to obtain a visa, you will need to apply at the embassy.

1) You will need the visa application form that you can get either from the embassy website or from the office. The form needs to be duly filled with all the details.  

2) You will need to paste a latest color photograph to this form and submit the original passport to the embassy along with it.

3) At the time of making the application, you will also need to make a payment as the visa-processing fee. The payment can be made in cash or via an embassy payable check.

4) The application can be submitted by you in person or you may send it via post if you stay away from the embassy.

5) On successful acceptance, the visa will be made available in a span of 3 to 7 working days.

Applying for a VOA:

In addition to the embassy, the immigration department too can issue visas. These are called VOAs or visa on arrival. This type of visa is applicable only if you will be entering a nation via the airports. Frenchmen flying to Vietnam have a wonderful option of getting a VOA to cut short on their time and money. We have a very simplified process for our clients who need a VOA.

1) We have made the entire system online based. Simply fill up the online form and make a payment for processing your visa.

2) We will submit this form to the Vietnam immigration department that will give a letter of approval in your name. We will send this letter to you in the least possible turnaround time to your mailbox. 

3) Carry this letter and once you land at the airport, submit it to the immigration officer. He will scrutinize the form and then stamp your visa for your peaceful stay in Vietnam.

4) We will make sure that this process is as quick and smooth as it can get. Thus, apply for a VOA with us and have a hassling free journey to Vietnam.
