Get Vietnam Business Visas in Advance

The Vietnamese business visa allows you to travel to Vietnam to attend business meetings, conferences, or any other business activities (without employment) for up to 30 days. The visa is required for most foreigners wishing to visit Vietnam. You can apply for a visa to Vietnam no earlier than 6 month prior to date of departure.

Your Vietnam visa will initially be valid for one month, but it can be extended by an extra month if required. The Vietnam business visa does not permit you to work in Vietnam and you must return to your country of residence when the visa expires.

We do not recommend embarking on any trips without a visa or relying on getting a visa on arrival.

Required Documents for a Business Visa

  • Your passport - which must be valid for at least one month longer than your Vietnam visa validity.
  • Completed and singed visa application form (we will email this to you).
  • One passport photo taken not more than one year ago, affixed to the application form.
  • Letter from current employer stating the purpose of the visit and the duration of stay.
  • Letter from the inviting company in Vietnam stating the purpose of the visit and the duration of the stay – a copy is acceptable.

Just a quick email to say thank you so much to Visafirst and Hanna in the London office for your help with my Chinese visa. Hanna was a star and kept me up to date all the time. I had already booked my trip to the States. I hoped I'd have my passport and Chinese Visa back in time (as I was off to China the following week) and thanks to Hanna I did. She called me Friday to let me know my Visa should be ready Monday AM and it was. I received my passport and went straight to the airport and all was good, then off to China next week. Great job and thanks again guys for such an efficient service.

I have found Visa First to be one of the easiest companies I've ever dealt with. The whole process has been great and the staff have been exceptional in dealing with any queries I have had in no time at all. I would definitely recommend them.

Dear Management, I would like to take this opportunity to commend the service we have received during our Skilled Visa process with Visa First, but particularly on the hand delivered service by Amanda Carter. She has been nothing but helpful, informative, responsive and professional. In all our dealings with her she has always taken the time to answer our questions and queries fully and promptly. She has a very friendly and positive attitude making the whole process a positive experience. I think employees and people like her deserve a thank you and more importantly recognition. Hard work, thoroughness and ability are part and parcel of her way of dealing with her clients. Thank you, Laura Magan
