Vietnam visa requirements for Sweden citizens
Good news for all Swedish citizens wishing to visit Vietnam. Under the Visa Waiver Program, the Sweden passport holders are able to travel without a visa for 15 days. After authorized period of stay, you have to leave Vietnam and wait at least 30 days to come back on the Visa Waiver Program.
If you intend to extend your stay beyond 15 days, you can either apply for a Vietnam visa before departure date or renew the visa from within Vietnam. However, we do not the latter because it’s much more time-consuming and inconvenient.
Apply for Vietnam visa
There are 2 options for a Swedish to obtain visa for Vietnam. You can follow traditional way to get the visa from embassy in person or make use of Visa On Arrival Program that we are going to explain below.
In order to be granted a visa upon arrival, you must first obtain a visa approval letter online. There are plenty of agents willing to arrange the letter for you and we are one of those companies. If you would like to use our service, just click on “Apply Online” to fill out the form and pay the application fee with credit card on the next step.
Within 2 business days (excluding weekends and national holidays), you’ll receive the letter of approval via email attached with an entry-exit form. The letter is good enough for you to pick up visa stamp at all Vietnam’s international airports but not valid at border gates. This means you are only able to apply for the visa approval if traveling by air.
On arrival, you’ll be requested to submit origin passport (6 months validity remaining), print copy of the letter, completed entry-exit form, 01 passport photo. When the officer finished checking your documents, he/she will call your name. You then have to pay $45 additional stamping fee to get the passport back. The stamping fee of 1 month multiple visa is $65 and of 3 months multiple visa is $95. Only cash is accepted. You cannot pay the fee in any foreign currencies other than American dollars and Vietnamese dongs.

In case you unexpectedly extend the stay after arriving in Vietnam, you are able to apply for visa renewal at Immigration Office or let us take care of it. The extension fee will vary from time to time and depend on duration of extension you ask for.
