Basic Documents and Information
The first step in acquiring a DN Visa is obtaining a DN approval letter granted by the Immigration Department. Once in possession of this letter, applicants can then go ahead and have it stamped at a visa-issuing authority of Vietnam abroad, such as embassy, Vietnam General Representative or in special cases, a border checkpoint.
The approval letter requires applicants to present the following documents:
- Passport – photo page
- Information about the date of entry/exit, single or multiple, duration of the visa and the place that will stamp the letter
- Invitation letter sponsoring foreigners to enter Vietnam
- Proof of legal status as prescribed by Vietnam’s law: certified true copy of the license or decision of the competent authority on establishment of the company; document introducing the seal and signature of a competent person.
