Volunteer work visa and tourist visa

Ask your question

My husband and I are volunteers for Habitat for Humanity in Vietnam in March. We have a visa approval number for our volunteer work dated from 18th March – 16th April. However we now arrive in Vietnam as tourists on 10th March. Is it ok to get tourist visas from 10th March – 17th March only (not a 30 day visa) as we have been told the visa dates must not cross over. We leave Vietnam 4th April. Thank you for your advice.

Hi Janet McDermid

Nice to hear that you enter Vietnam for volunteer works.

Unfortunately, you can NOT enter Vietnam on 10th MArch on your starting date of 18th March visa. In such case, you will need to re-apply for a new one. However, since you enter for voluteering works, we are happy to process your visa for Free, please use this form to apply online.

Have a good weekend.
