Vietnam is fast becoming a tourist’s delight in Asia. It is a southeast Asian country known for its beaches and vibrant cities. Nigerian passport holders seeking to visit Vietnam must obtain a visa through the embassy or online.
An application can be made to the Embassy of Vietnam in Abuja or Lagos. When applying for a Vietnam Visa in Nigeria (through the embassy), the requirements are:
- Duly completed application form
- Valid passport
- Recent passport photograph
- One self-addressed envelope
- Visa fee.
The procedure of obtaining a Vietnam Visa in Nigeria, though simple, may involve repeated visits to the embassy to complete the application process before obtaining your visa. This is why most people prefer the online application process.
This procedure is only available to passengers arriving Vietnam by air. An application is made online to obtain an approval letter to pick up your Vietnam visa at Vietnam International Airports. There are different companies that advertise this service and they charge a fee to obtain the approval letter.
Once you fill the online form and your information is processed, you will be sent a letter of approval, which you must present at the Visa on Arrival counter in any of the Vietnamese airports for the collection of your visa. In addition to your approval letter, you’ll need to have your visa fee and two passport photos when you arrive at the airport. Ensure you have all your supporting documents which will largely depend on your visa category.
