The advanced and digitally integrated solution developed by VFS Global (as an exclusive service provider to the Embassy of Vietnam in India) will offereVOAapplicants a digital wallet/locker (which ensures high levels of data protection). This includes scanned copies of their passport, live facial biometric capture and finally, the receipt of their eVOA approval letters once approved. Customers can also make online payments using the portal.

Priority eVOA service for Vietnam also available

For those who seek a visa urgently to travel to Vietnam, the option of special priority services on the same day (as well as next day approvals)is now available on this officially recognised online solution. The cost of the priority services is slightly higher than the cost of the normal visa processing service.

The country is in the midst of a tourism boom, and its visitor numbers are rising at one of the fastest rates in the world.
With more than 18million visitors travelling in 2019 from across the world to visit this historic and culturally vibrant nation, inbound travel to Vietnam is estimated to rise even further as the country is now becoming easily accessible with more direct flights from key locations.

STEP 2: Upload the required documents which are securely transferred on the digital wallet and complete the online payment.
