How to get a Vietnam visa from Latvia?

From Latvia, visitors may apply for Vietnam visa on arrival in just a few hours by submitting visa application online via www.e-vietnamvisa.com or get a visa at the Vietnam Embassy in Riga, Latvia in 3 - 5 working days. From February 2017, e-visa is another option for the Latvia tourists who desire to travel Vietnam less than 30 days.

Each type of visa application is offering some advantages and disadvantages. Visa on arrival is especially beneficial for those who are living far away from the Vietnamese Embassy; or those who do not want to send off their passport by post; or somebody who are tired of traveling a long distance from time to time and then wait for hours to submit a pile of documents. The other advantages of visa on arrival include faster processing, cost-saving and more efficient payment methods. However, Vietnam visa on arrival is available for air entry only.
Vietnam e-visa has been introduced by the Vietnam Immigration Department in February 2017. Until now, there are 80 countries whose citizens are eligible for Vietnam e-visa including Latvia. Like a visa on arrival, Vietnam e-visa will be performed online totally via the Vietnam Immigration Department's website. The longest duration of stay for e-visa has been up to 30 days with single entry.

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:

  • Firstly, fill in an online application form and make a payment for processing service fee
  • Secondly, get a visa approval letter delivered via email within 2 hours (emergency service) or 2 working days (normal service)
  • Thirdly, 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

Apply for a Vietnam Embassy visa in Latvia

At present, there is no Vietnam Embassy in Latvia 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.

Apply for a Vietnam e-visa

Vietnam e-visa is good for the Latvian tourists who travel Vietnam for less than 30 days with single entry. In order to apply for an e-visa, the applicants need to prepare:

  • A passport data page photo and recent taken portrait: The photos are stored in JPG or PNG format with a size of 2MB each file maximum;
  • A credit card that is enabled to make online payment;
  • All passport information including full name, date of birth, nationality, passport number and the date of arrival, entry and exit ports and intended hotel as well.

How to clear the "in processing" status and fix the errors for evisa?

Normally it takes 3 - 5 working days to complete an e-visa however, at a peak time it may take up 7 - 10 days to give a result. Some Latvian customers are sharing with us that after 7 - 10 days, they access in the link given by the Vietnam Immigration Department to check the visa process and it still returns "in processing" status.

Others people make mistakes when they input the data incorrectly or the information contains spelling mistakes or wrong numbers.

Those above mistakes sometimes can happen and the travellers don't know how to solve them. If you are in this situation, you should immediately contact the visa supporting team for the help or apply for a new visa if you have plenty of time. The Latvian travellers who have a problem with e-visa and shortage of time should contact us as soon as possible to start a new urgent e-visa application process and we promise to clear the pending status and correct the mistakes within 4 working hours to 1 working day only.
