Vietnam visa for citizens of Kenya

1. Does Kenyan need a visa to Vietnam?
Kenyan nationality is not included in the visa exemption list, but in the special nation list of Vietnam Immigration Department. It means that not like other countries such as Europe and America, it is a little bit difficult to apply Vietnam visa for Kenyan passport holders. Vietnam Immigration Department will require many documents to issue a visa for Kenyan, it also takes much time than usual. Therefore, with a higher fee than the others, all Kenyans need to apply visa to Vietnam for either tourist or business purpose.
- Vietnam visa for tourist purpose is required
- Vietnam visa for business purpose is required
2. Two options for Kenyan to apply for Vietnam visa
2.1. Apply online for a Vietnam visa on arrival
Kenyan passport holder can:
- Apply Vietnam visa on arrival online from anywhere to receive visa Approval Letter. And the Vietnam visa will be picked up upon arrival at the Vietnam airports by showing up the printed out of the Approval Letter.
- By using our service, the Approval Letter will be sent via email within 1 or 2 working days (normal case), 4 working hours (urgent case) or even 30 minutes (emergency case) depending on which option the applicant chooses on our website after submitting online application form.
After applying your visa information, Kenyan passport holder needs to send to our email the following documents:
- Scan copy of Passport
- Returned flight tickets
- Hotel booking
- Invitation letter (if you have)
Besides, in some cases, Vietnam Immigration Department will ask for further information like profile, police confirmation. Kenyan is required to send it as well.

Useful notes
- Before applying online for a Vietnam Visa on arrival, the Kenyan citizen ensures that the passport has at least 6-month-validity and left pages from travel date.

2.2. Apply for Vietnam visa directly at the Vietnamese Embassy/Consulate
For those who want to get a Vietnam visa beforehand or want to travel to Vietnam by land or sea, Kenyan can go to the Vietnamese Embassy/Consulate nearest your location to apply for the visa.
