I would like to tell you guys about 5-year Vietnam visa exemption process for my beloved wife. I think this blog post would help someone out there who also want to bring their family along to Vietnam will have your own an appropriate option.
Hi, I’m Vietnamese named Anthony Nguyen. I had studied in France for 3 years and got married to a French girl, but now I’m based in Vietnam. I have worked for a firm here since 2018 while my spouse still lived in France at that time. She had visited me many times by using tourist visa service from Eviva travel company. As I thought I would work here for a long time because the working environment is kinda suitable, I considered about bringing my wife to Vietnam. I wanted her to be near me so it could be easier to take care of my family.
How to get a 5 Year Vietnam Visa Exemption?
At first, I took getting her a TRC into consider. Then, I decided to ask Evivatour.com for the best visa options instead of looking for ton of information on the internet by myself. When I came there, the staff offered the opinion that my wife did not have a Visa TT, therefore, one of the most suitable would be 5-year visa exemption. I back home and discussing with Julie – my spouse through many video calls. Eventually, we came to agree to do a 5-year visa exemption, so she can stay in Vietnam with me for a long time.
Starting the process of preparing the papers needed, Julie filled all information online in APPLICATION FORM FOR ISSUANCE/REISSUANCE OF A VISA EXEMPTION CERTIFICATE and print it out. You can find this form in the link below: http://mienthithucvk.mofa.gov.vn/
After that, she went to her familiar store in France to take photos in 4x6cm size, with white background, front view, a bare head without sunglasses. Remember to take 02 PHOTOS: one photo to attach on the form and the other separate. Besides, she just needed to prepare a copy of her valid passport, along with Marriage Certificate to prove our legal relationship. By the way, please note that passport must be valid for at least 12 months, but should be 5 years and 6 months for a 5-year visa to be granted.
After having all the necessary documents, Julie brought both the original and the copy to the Embassy of Vietnam in France so they can check and collate (It locates at 61 Rue de Miromesnil, 75008 Paris in case you do not know where is it). The processing time normally lasts 7 business days. Julie submitted from Tuesday, and she got the results the next Thursday.
All the above is my wife’s experience of getting a 5-year visa exemption. After all that time, we were reunited happily in Vietnam. In case your wife/husband is in Vietnam and does not have time to go directly to the Vietnam Immigration Department to apply for a 5-year visa exemption, you can contact a trustworthy travel company like Eviva Tour so they could assist you 😀 good luck!
