Canada is not included in Vietnam visa exemption list, therefore every Canadian passport holder needs to apply for a visa prior to their travel to be allowed entry into Vietnam. Currently, there are 2 ways to handle your Vietnam visa application:

                *  Applying for visa at Vietnam Embassy (traditional way, visa stamp picked up at Vietnam Embassies) and,

                * Apply for Visa on arrival with (visa stamp picked up at Vietnam International Airports).

In order to get visa to Vietnam, you may choose one of the two options above. Please keep in mind that these two options are quite different in terms of application procedure and applicable applicants.

Travelers should note that while visa on arrival is more convenient and less time-consuming, it is applicable for those who travel to Vietnam by air only. So, if you plan to travel to Vietnam by land or sea, you should apply for a visa at the nearest Vietnam embassy.


Currently, there is one office of the embassy of Vietnam in Canada in Ottawa.

  • With visa on arrival, the Vietnam Immigration Department will issue a visa approval letter with your name on it stating that you are allowed to enter Vietnam on a specified date.
  • Then, you will have the visa stamped onto your passport at the arrival airport. If you apply for visa at Vietnam Embassies, the visa stamp will be on your passport when they send it back to you.
