UK citizens can apply for your visa within three months of your intended date of travel. We are only able to post-date visas by a maximum of three months from the date of the decision on your visa application. You can enter Vietnam anytime after your visa issue date but not before.

We strongly advise applicants not to confirm their travel arrangements to come to Vietnam until they have received their visa.

We strongly recommend that you do not buy a non-refundable, non-flexible ticket to Vietnam, until your visa application has been approved and you have received your visa. We do not accept responsibility for any financial loss and we do not fast-track applications solely due to planned date of travel.

The processing time begins when we has received your completed application form, with your passport and supporting documents, your biometrics registration and the relevant application fee. It ends after a decision has been taken on your application and your passport is available for collection.

Visa applications are assessed individually and individual circumstances can mean processing times may vary.

We also advise that you check the announcements we make on email.
