E-Visa Vietnam All Things You Need To Know Before Travelling


E-visa is the abbreviation for the phase “Electronic Visa”. E-visa is a legal license which allows foreigners passing by the border checkpoint in purpose of travelling, business activities or learning abroad.

Commonly, the basic form of visa is the sticker form which will be pasted on your passport book. In the traditional process, if you desire to apply for a visa, you have to fill the application, and submit it to that country’s embassy. Then, all you have to do is waiting for the approval.

This is the general process that everybody has to experience before entering any countries with any kinds of visa.
To raise the competitive factor in the tourism industry, many countries did innovate the visa form especially for the tourists.

These activities led to the release of Visa On Arrival (VOA), the second generation of visa, which has the stamp-style form.

The tourists and visitors only have to apply for a visa right at the border gate, pay the charge and get the applications sealed.

Although this process is way much more useful when it saves your time to go and return to the embassy twice, people, who use Visa On Arrival, have to deal with another inconvenience.

The disadvantage of Visa On Arrival is that you have to line up and wait for too long. After a tiring and long trip, the waiting must not be comfortable.

When you have to spend so much time and effort to travel around, waiting for applying visa is a necessary inconvenience and waste for you.

However, when the needs of travelling of people keep increasing rapidly, there was a revolution in the industry thanks to the development of the modernization and globalization.

E-visa is the latest kind as well as “the breakthrough innovation” for anyone who travels a lot. To definite in an exact way, E-visa or Electronic Visa is a legal license which appliers print out from their personal email.


This license will be certificated by competent state agencies of countries when appliers have already registered through the Internet and paid the fee, according to the law.
