Visa Vietnam

Can I leave Vietnam after the exit date issued in my visa approval letter?

I applied for a Vietnam visa approval letter and it states my exit date. But, my plan has changed and I need to leave Vietnam latter than that exit date. Can I? If not, what should I do?


Be kindly informed that you cannot leave Vietnam after the exit date granted in your visa approval letter. You if want to leave after that date, you have two ways as following:

  1. Apply for an other visa approval letter which match your itinerary in Vietnam if you haven’t entered Vietnam with that approval letter yet ; OR
  2. Extend your Vietnam visa when you are in Vietnam.
