Visa Waiver for Vietnam
There are several countries whose citizens are exempt from visa processing, depending on the days of stay in the country.
Currently, 24 countries are affected by some type of visa exemption for ordinary passports, so it is best to check the official page of visa exemptions for Vietnam.
But as a detail, we will indicate that among the most fortunate are countries like Chile, which have a 90-day exemption.
Online Visa Validity
The maximum length of stay that e-visa Vietnam allows us is 30 days from the day of entry into the country.
Keep in mind that this visa is valid only for a single entry into the country. So if we leave the country before 30 days, we must process a new visa.
In addition to the date of entry, we must indicate it during the electronic application for the Visa, and obviously, it must coincide with the day we are going to access, otherwise, we will be losing days. The departure date is automatically calculated by the system.
