How to Apply for a Vietnam Visa for Children

Any parents travelling to Vietnam with their children will need to understand the latest rules on whether or not it is necessary to apply for a Vietnam visa for each of their children.

According to the guidelines issued by the Vietnam Immigration Department, it is a standard requirement for all children to apply for a valid visa regardless of their age. The application procedure is very much the same as that for adults visiting Vietnam for a holiday.

However, if the children are a citizen of one of the countries that can benefit from the short-term visa exemption; they will be able to visit Vietnam for a short stay visa-free. 

If it is necessary to apply for a personal passport for the children, they will be subject to paying the relevant visa application/stamping fees. However, if the child is still on the same passport as a parent who is travelling at the same time, there will be no extra fees to pay.

How to Apply for a Vietnam Visa for Children

Applying for a Vietnam visa
There are three practical methods to apply for a Vietnam visa for a child.

Online methods:
Visa on Arrival – the first type of Vietnam visa is the visa on arrival. This is the preferred type of visa for Vietnam because of its fast processing, low-cost and simplified application approach. You apply for this visa by contacting a third-party travel agent or tour operator based in Vietnam.

Simply complete the online visa application form with your travel and personal information. Make sure to provide the information exactly the same as shown on your passport. Once the form is complete and the relevant fee is paid, you wait two or three days for the visa approval letter to arrive. This is sent by email in PDF format and must be printed off and taken on the flight to Vietnam. The actual full visa stamp for you and your child is obtained upon arriving at the designated Vietnam airport

But, it is important to remember that the Vietnam visa on arrival is only an applicable option if you intend to travel to Vietnam by air. If you intend to use a seaport or cross a land-border to enter Vietnam, your best option is to apply for the visa in advance via a local Vietnamese embassy.

E-visa – the next option is to apply for a Vietnam e-visa for you and your child. This is a further option to apply online. The e-visa is a practical visa if the stay in the country is up to 30 days and for the single-entry trip only. Also, there are restrictions on the entry points.

Apply in-person:
Vietnamese Embassy – the final option to apply for the Vietnam visa is to visit a local Vietnamese Embassy in-person. This gives the option to obtain the visa in advance and you will have everything in place for your family before travelling. However, before visiting an embassy it is recommended to give them a call and find out the visa application procedure, required documents, and the relevant fees for the adult and child visas.
