Vietnam e-visa for Maldives citizens

The foreigners arriving to Vietnam these days have many questions about Vietnam e-visa which is officially launched on February 1, 2017 by the Vietnamese Government in its pilot plan until February 1, 2021. For the Maldives citizens, the first question should be: Vietnam e-visa is available for Maldives passport or not?

To answer this question, we are sorry to inform that at the moment, Maldives citizens are NOT eligible for Vietnam e-visa. In the first stage of this plan, this kind of visa is available for just 46 nationalities (the full list can be found here). Further nationalities may be added from time to time, but we are not sure about time of this move.

So, how to obtain Vietnam visa for Maldives citizens at the moment?

The traditional ways to get Vietnam visa for Maldives remain the same as previously with two options as follows:

  • Getting visa via the Vietnam embassy; or
  • Getting Vietnam visa on arrival.

Apply for Vietnam visa on arrival via www.e-vietnamvisa.com

In order to apply for a visa on arrival, you are requested to complete 3 simple steps as follow:

  • Step 1: Fill in an online application form and make a payment for processing service fee
  • Step 2: Get a visa approval letter delivered via email within 2 hours (emergency service) or 2 working days (normal service)
  • Step 3: Present the original passport, copy of approval letter (in hard copy), 2 photos (at passport sized) and pay the stamping fee to get visa attached on the passport at arrival airport

NOTICE
Maldives is considered a "sensitive nation" due to some reasons. Thus, the citizens of Maldives are subject to higher processing fee (from US$125 - US$225 per visa, exclude the stamping fee). If you take too much effort in applying for Vietnam visa at the Vietnam Embassy in Maldives or in neighboring countries but it is unsuccessful finally then we are pleased to help!
It should be noticed that, below document and information are required to process Vietnam visa on arrival for Maldives:
- Your passport copy;
- Your round trip air ticket (or arrival airport information).

Apply for a Vietnam Embassy visa in Maldives

At present, there is no Vietnam Embassy in Maldives to issue a visa directly. You will need to apply for a visa on arrival instead or visit the nearest Embassy of Vietnam in neighbouring countries for the help.
