Everything a Mexican should know about getting a visa to Vietnam

In recent years, the number of Mexican tourists coming to Vietnam has been significantly increased. In case you haven’t acknowledged, all Mexican passport holders are required to apply for Vietnam Visa before entering the country.

In this post, we would like to introduce you 2 ways of applying Vietnam Visa as well as recommendation so that you can have a memorable trip to our country.

There are currently 2 ways of applying Vietnam Visa and each of them has their own advantages and disadvantages

Application at Vietnam Embassy in Mexico

This is the traditional way of applying for Vietnam Visa. There is an Embassy of Vietnam in Mexico whose detailed address and contact information are mentioned as follow:

In order to have your visa stamped at Embassy, you will need to prepare the original passport and a visa application form. Usually, it will take you from 4 to 5 business days to complete the procedure. The total fee for applying at the Embassy often includes service fee, stamping fee, transportation and delivery fee.

Besides, if the nearest Embassy is far from you places, it will be extremely inconvenient to travel around. Because you have to bring your original passport, you are always in worry of missing it as well.

In case you want to apply for business visa, you have to ask for sponsorship documents which make the whole procedure more complicated.

However, the good point of this type of visa application is you will get your visa stamped before you set off, so you don’t need to line up at the international airports, waiting for Immigration officers. Moreover, this application type is available for those who intend to visit Vietnam by any means of transportation.

*Note: If you are Mexican and you are currently not in your country, don’t bother, you can apply for Vietnam Visa at any Vietnamese Embassy in the world. Just find the nearest one to you.
