VIETNAM VISA EXTENSION AND RENEWAL

 

After entering Vietnam for a specific duration as allowed, you may want to extend or renew your Vietnam Visa to stay longer in Vietnam. As a result, Vietnam visa extension service has been popular in helping travelers continue to stay in Vietnam after their visas expire without exiting Vietnam to apply for a new one again. Currently Vietnam visa extension/renewal is only applicable for 1 month or 3 months (single/multiple entry).

 

 

How to extend/renew your visa in Vietnam ?

 

You have 2 ways to get your visa renewed/ extended: through Vietnam Immigration Departments directly or through a travel agency. Generally, it is easier and hassle-free to extend the visa through a travel agency. The only in-hand document you need to prepare is your original passport with 2 blank pages at maximum. The processing time takes from 5 to 10 days, depending on your type of Vietnam visa so we suggest you should extend your Vietnam visa at least 1 week before your visa expires. So what is difference between a visa extension and renewal? Please note that visa extension or renewals must  belongs to your current visa.

 

 

1. Visa extension: you will continue your stay in Vietnam longer with the original visa which must be re-active by our work with Vietnam immigration office. It means that your original visa is still legal but the expired-date is lengthened by Vietnam Immigration office here (approved by a new stamp on your passport with a new expired-date). 

In order to apply visa extension, your current visa has to meet some requirements of Vietnam Immigration Department. 

- Your visa extension has to be correspondent to your current visa type

  + Stay in 01 more month: Your current visa is 01 month/single-entry, 01 month/multiple-entry, 03 months/single-entry or 03 months/multiple-entry.

  + Stay in 03 more months: Your current visa is 3 months/single-entry or 03 months/ multiple-entry.

 

 

2. Renewal Vietnam: You are granted a new visa stamp and visa sticker on your passport with a new duration permission. The staying length is valid maximum in 3 months. Moreover the visa renewal fee is higher than the visa extension fee because you must pay for new stamping fee and new visa sticker fee on your passport. Visa renewal is available for someone who:

- Entered Vietnam with visa exemption.

- Already extended your original visa ONCE.

- Your extension requirement is not correspondent to the current visa type.

   + You would like to upgrade your current visa from 01 month to 03 months.

   + You would like to upgrade your current visa from single entry to multiple entry
