During the pandemic, the Vietnamese government stopped issuing visas to citizens of all countries. Holders of tourist visas or other types of visas will be granted a temporary residence permit extension.
Almost all cases have been extended from 1 to 3 months. Some people with Visa Waiver are extended 6 months.
Visa renewal rates have been very expensive but have become cheaper recently. Price of visa extension for 1 month is: 70USD, 2 months is 155USD and 3 months is 250USD.
Visitors to Vietnam from March 1 are automatically granted a free extension until July 30.
Some visas are overdue, but a note from your country’s embassy will not pay a penalty. Without this document, you will have to pay a fine of 500,000 to 4,000,000 depending on the number of days you overstay. If you are overdue for more than 16 days, the maximum fine that you must pay is 4,000,000
