Extend Vietnam Visa

What's Vietnam Visa Extension?

A Vietnam Visa Extension allows foreign nationals who are currently in Vietnam with a valid visa to extend their stay beyond the initial visa duration. This means that you can apply to stay in Vietnam for a longer period without having to leave the country and re-apply for a new visa.

Here are some key points about the Vietnam visa extension:

    • Eligibility: Not all visa types are eligible for extension. Common types that can be extended include tourist visas, business visas, and some long-term visas. Check the specific visa type requirements.
    • Duration: The extension period depends on the type of visa you currently hold. Tourist visas can often be extended for an additional 1-3 months, while business visas may be extended for a similar duration or longer.
Note: This service is now NOT offered by the Vietnam Immigration Office. We will keep you updated immediately upon new developments.

Document requirements

    • Passport: be valid for at least 06 months from the time of extension/renewal, and have at least 02 blank pages.
    • Existing Vietnam Visa: You must hold a valid Vietnam visa that is nearing its expiration date. This visa serves as the basis for seeking an extension.
    • Compliant Immigration Status: You must have maintained a compliant immigration status throughout your stay in Vietnam. This means respecting visa regulations and avoiding any violations.
    • An invitation letter from a Vietnamese person/company entity if extending a business visa.
    • No Criminal Record: You must not have any criminal convictions or pending criminal charges. A clean criminal record is essential for visa extension approval.
