visa extension

Post Posted: Sun Oct 04, 2015 3:11 pm

Hi Do you have advice? I have come to Saigon for a holiday and have decided I want to stay longer. My Visa is for a month. How do I extend my Visa? Is there somewhere in the city I can go to and do over the counter?
Thanks for any info
Deb

Firstly, you need to verify what type of your visa: travelling visa or business visa, length of stay: single month or 3 months... depending on difference of type of visa you need some documents like personal information: Passport, photos...and then submit it to Ho Chi MInh Immigration Department.

- Address: 40A, Hang Bai Street, Ha Noi, Vietnam
- Website: www.vnimm.gov.vn

Vietnam Immigration Department (A18) in Danang
- Address: No. 7 Tran Quy Cap, Da Nang City

Vietnam Immigration Department (A18) in Ho Chi Minh City
- Address: No 254 Nguyen Trai, Ben Thanh Ward, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City

Vietnam Immigration Department will start at 8:00 AM - 11:00 AM in the morning and 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM in the afternoon!

I got my visa extended in Hanoi, the extension is somehow pricey and you need to give the agent with your original passport, this takes 3- 4 days though.

I got my original visa sorted out by a tour agency (http://www.vietnameseprivatetours.com) and i highly recommend them.

Cheers.

Your were likely ripped off because you used a Tour Op. Not Smart.

If you had followed the instructions above you would have:
1. Saved money
2. Got a new visa in about 10 minutes.

You don't need an agent even.

hahaha, the question was about visa extension not about applying a new visa.
