How to apply for a Vietnam visa from Cook Islands               

Embassy visa and visa on arrival are two legit options for citizens to get a Vietnam visa for tourism or business purpose.

Get Vietnam visa at the Embassy

Currently, the Embassy of Vietnam has not been established in Cook Islands. Therefore, citizens of Cook Islands can only apply at Vietnamese Embassy Oversea for having a Vietnam visa. Kindly contact and apply your Vietnam visa at the nearest Vietnamese embassy in your neighboring countries.

To get the visa in this way, Cook Islands passport holders need to submit:

• Original passport which is valid at least 6 months since the traveling date to Vietnam

• Completed Vietnam visa application form

• An invitation letter sponsored by a Vietnam based company for business purpose or by a Vietnam based travel agency for tourist visa

• And others as required by the embassy/consulate

Please contact the embassy in advance for the best document preparation before visiting there in person.

Get Visa on Arrival (recommended)

The best and easiest way to get a visa for Cook Islands citizens who are travelling to Vietnam by air is to get Visa on Arrival (VOA). By doing this way, there is no need to visit the Vietnamese Embassy or Consulate in person to submit the visa application.

With visa on arrival, you have to get a visa approval letter in advance before departure for Vietnam. Upon arrival, please present the visa letter with other documents to get visa stamped on your passport. The process to get the visa approval letter is completed online through a local visa or travel agency.

In order to get the visa approval letter, please send us a copy of your passport to our email at [email protected]. Our visa experts will response your inquiry soon.
