How to apply for a Vietnam visa from Kenya

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

Currently, there is no Vietnamese embassy or consulate in Kenya.

To get the visa in this way, Kenyan 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)

If you prefer a simpler and easier way to get Vietnam visa on arrival, visa on arrival is highly recommended for Kenyan citizens.

With visa on arrival, Kenyan citizens 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.
