By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

As Chile is included in Vietnam Visa exemption list, visitors from this country who want to visit Vietnam for tourism purpose, are not required to apply for Vietnam Visa. The maximum time for a stay in Vietnam is 90 days. (Citizens of other countries please check here to find out where your country is included in the list of exemption)

But if their stay in Vietnam is more than 90 days then a valid Vietnam visa will be required. There are currently 2 ways of applying for a Vietnam visa. The traditional one is to apply in person at Vietnam Embassy, another one is to apply through Vietnam-visa.com.

Applying for Visa at Vietnam Embassy

For this type of application, you will have to show up in person at the nearest Embassy to complete the procedures. Remember to bring along necessary documents including your original passport, application form, sponsorship documents, and visa fee. For now, there is an Embassy of Vietnam in Santiago, Chile.
