4. Transit visa

Vietnam is one of these countries, and does not require any transit visa, as long as you plan to stay inside the airport. Note, however, international airports such as Hanoi and Danang are rather small and not the best places for a light-sleeper. Therefore if you have an over-night transit, you might want to exit the airport and stay at a nearby hotel. In those cases, you will need a normal single entry visa.

If you have booked a tour organized by a travel agency in Vietnam, you might be granted a transit visa to visit surrounding cities in a few days. This visa must go with your air tickets flying to the third countries after leaving Vietnam and a detail itinerary provided by a Vietnamese travel agency. The stamping fee for this visa is US$5 and the processing fee is US$20 per visa.

Besides, base on the length of stay and number of entry, it is classified into 1 month or 3 months of stay, single or multiple entry. Normally, 1 month of stay visa is tourist visa and 3 months of stay is business visa:

5. Single or multiple entry visa

A single entry visa allows you to enter Vietnam once during its validity time but a multiple entry visa allows you to enter Vietnam more than once (as many times as you can) during its validity time. For example, if you enter Vietnam now, stay some days and leave for Cambodia, when re-entering Vietnam, you can still use your current Vietnam multiple entry visa (within its validity). The stamping fee are request to pay at the first entry only.
