How to get a long-term Vietnam visa
During many years working in Vietnam visa industry, we have received many complains from a lot of foreigners who come to Vietnam whether to work as freelancers or to retire about the visa renewal process, which requires them to get a new visa after every 3 month. In order to do this, they have to leave the country and obtain a new visa to get back. It is a lengthy and costly process. This problem no longer bothers you as from now on the validity of Vietnam visa is up to 1 year .
Vietnam tourist visa is good for short visits of less than 90 days. If you are scheduled to stay longer, you will need a long-term Vietnam visa valid for 6 months or 1 year with multiple entries. It’s a huge challenge to apply for a long-term visa by yourself as it’s only available for business purpose and requires a variety of documents. For this reason, we suggest you a help from us. Read on to see what we can do to help you obtain an easy Vietnam visa for long stay.
