Service of Issuance of Approval Letters to Enter Vietnam

An approval letter for entry into Vietnam is a document approved by the Immigration Department for foreigners entering Vietnam. In order to apply for an approval letter, sponsoring agencies/organizations of the foreigner must submit applications to the Immigration Department for issuance of an approval letter to the foreigner so that this person can enter Vietnam. If approved in writing, the Immigration Department will issue an official letter called an approval letter.

Depending on purposes of entering Vietnam (travel, visiting relatives, employment ...) the procedures for applying for the approval letter will be different, currently there are two ways for foreigners to enter Vietnam: obtaining a visa at Vietnamese Embassy or Vietnamese General Consulate abroad and obtaining a Vietnamese visa at an international border gate such as an airport or a border gate such as Moc Bai, Cam Ranh, etc. by an approval letter for entry into Vietnam issued by the Immigration Department of Vietnam.
