Vietnam visa requirements for Malawi citizens

Vietnam immigration policies regulated that all the Malawi citizens are required a visa for Vietnam for purposes of tourism, business, family visit or study. Those transiting at Vietnamese airports and not crossing immigration area do not need the visa.

From Malawi, the travelers can apply for Vietnam visa by 2 options:

1. Apply for Vietnam visa at the Vietnam Embassy in neighboring countries

Since there is no Vietnam Embassy inside Malawi, the applicants must apply for a visa at the Vietnam Embassy in neighboring countries. This is obviously a costly process which takes you much time and too much anxiety.
The process of Vietnam visa applied at the Vietnam Embassy in the neighboring countries of Malawi:

  • Step 1: Complete the visa application form provided by the Vietnam Embassy or Consulates;
  • Step 2: Submit the application form, original passport, 01 passport-sized photo, visa fee at the embassy. You can submit the documents in person or send by post;
  • Step 3: Receiving your visa at the Vietnam Embassy or by post after 5 – 7 working days;

2. Apply for Vietnam visa on arrival via www.visumvietnamonline.com

Vietnam visa on arrival is a legitimate alternative to obtaining a full visa from the Vietnam Embassy or Consulates. It is beneficial for those who are living far from the Vietnam Embassy or Consulate and traveling Vietnam by air. Learn more how visa on arrival works.

When applying for Vietnam visa on arrival, there is no extra documents or original passport required. The applicants just need to fill out the online application form, conduct payment and receive a letter of approval issued by the Vietnam Immigration Department at given time. A full visa will be stamped onto their passport upon arrival airport in Vietnam.
