Rush Vietnam visa application with tight deadline

(Getting Vietnam visa in just 1 or 2 hours)

Rush visa is a visa which is arranged in very short time on working days, holidays or at weekend; in working time or non-working time. This is the most preeminence of Vietnam visa on arrival comparing to Vietnam visa issued at the embassy since the visa applied at Vietnam Embassy would take at least 3-5 working days to complete.

1. Who need rush visa to Vietnam?

The applicants those are not in the Vietnam visa exemption list, are requested to apply for a visa in advance for a trip. However, we recognize that an urgent need for travellers may suddenly arise. Criteria includes:

- You don't think that you must have a visa to enter Vietnam even you are not in the Vietnam visa exemption list

- You forget to apply for Vietnam visa in advance and your flight departs on closed holidays or at weekend

- Due to your misunderstanding that visa on arrival means everything will be arranged at arrival airport without an advanced approval letter from the Vietnam Immigration Department

- You need to accompany an immediate family member in Vietnam who requires urgent medical care. An immediate family member has a serious medical condition and requires your presence urgently;

- You need to attend the funeral of an immediate family member; or

- You have to take part in an urgent and late breaking business matter, where the need to travel to Vietnam could not have been foreseen.
