I'm sorry if I posted this in the wrong section. My wife and child are planning to visit her parents back in Vietnam, I need to make a visa for my child since she is a US citizen. I'm not sure where I can obtain a form. If anyone has any information on how to obtain this form can you please let me know where it is? Thanks in advance.


Wish everyone the best of luck with their journey to be reunited with their love ones. av-61161.gif

The first step would be to look online for an embassy for Vietnam in the United States. The embassy website should tell you what paperwork you need and if an interview is required.

You can get the form there. You need to contact them to ask visa fee because you cant find anywhere on their website.

Post your question on the Vietnam regional forum too. You'll get answers from people in similar situations.

If you apply for a VN visa at the Vietnamese Embassy, it is $70 plus pre-paid shipping. Turn around is 1-2 business days.

Download the form from the embassy website, fill it out, glue a 2x2 passport photo to the form (and 1 additional photo for a loose-leaf visa), attach a copy of your passport (for a loose-leaf visa or your actual passport if you want visa stamp affixed to it), purchase a money order for $70 and a pre-paid Priority Mail envelope/stamp for $5.05, then send everything to the embassy. They will process your application and you'll get it back within a week.

However, most Vietnamese travel agents will bundle the visa fee with their ticket price and sometimes it's worth looking into.

Forgot to mention that check off the 3-month box under Length of Stay. Same fee for 1 month or 3.

I buy my airline tickets from a Vietnamese travel agent who will also do our travel visa's . $60 dollars for my wife and children who are from Vietnam and $150 for me an American. I find it more convenient using an Asian Travel agent,always get the best deals,worry free. Good luck!
