HASSLE FREE, SAME DAY, ONE YEAR MULTIPLE ENTRIES, BUSINESS VISA,

AND WITHOUT SENDING IN YOUR PASSPORT 

 

Although Vietnam offers landing visas to U.S. citizens traveling to Vietnam, we recommend that all business travelers apply for paper visas (loose leaf or stickers) before traveling.  Paper visas offer several advantages over landing visas:

 

  • Paper visas are intended for business trips

 

  • Paper visas are valid for multiple entries while landing visas can only be used for a single entry

 

  • Landing visas can cause delays at the border of up to 15-30 minutes because of the additional paperwork that must be completed.  The additional paperwork required upon passing through immigration include:

 

  • Photos

  • Application documents

  • Fees

 

In conjunction with US-Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and with the support of Vietnamese Embassy in Washington, U.S.-China Chamber of Commerce is offering HASSLE FREE, SAME DAY, ONE YEAR MULTIPLE ENTRIES, BUSINESS VISA, AND WITHOUT SENDING IN YOUR PASSPORT Vietnam visa processing service.  We do NOT require invitation letter from Vietnam or your company’s letter.  This program will also allow you to keep your passport while you are applying for the visa.  Please contact Mai Hoang at 312-368-9029 or  for additional information.
