How to get a visa for visiting Vietnam in Afghanistan?

At present, there are 3 options to obtain a visa for visiting Vietnam from Afghanistan. Citizens of Afghanistan or citizens of other countries who are in Afghanistan can follow below instructions to get a visa for visiting Vietnam.

Option 1: Apply for e-visa of Vietnam

We checked & found that citizens of Afghanistan are NOT eligible for e-visa of Vietnam, therefore, you can choose option 2 or 3 to get a visa for visiting Vietnam.

Citizens of other countries who are in Afghanistan, please check “Who is eligible for e-visa of Vietnam?” to see if you are eligible to apply for e-visa of Vietnam or not.

Option 2. Apply for a visa at the embassy or consulate of Vietnam in Afghanistan

Vietnam and Afghanistan established diplomatic relations on 16th September 1974. Vietnam’s Embassy in Kabul opened in November 1978 and closed in June 1992. Vietnam’s Embassy in Pakistan was re-opened in 2005 and accredited to Afghanistan

Option 3: Request for visa on arrival through an online visa website.

Unlike visa on arrival of some countries in the world, in order to get visa on arrival of Vietnam, Afghan passport holders must have a visa approval letter from the Immigration Department of Vietnam which allows to pick up your visa on arrival at the international airport of Vietnam. There are lots of travel companies and online visa websites can arrange that kind of visa approval letter, you can request through them or request online through us.
