Good news for Kiwis planning a holiday to Nam. New Zealand passport holders are now eligible to apply for a Vietnam tourist visa via their (trial) electronic visa programme.
To apply go to:
Although last time I tried it timed out so they may still be doing some work on it. I’m also not sure of the cost at the moment but I expect it’d be cheaper than the NZ$125 from the embassy in Wellington.December 5, 2017 at 3:07 pm NZDT #3813Adam JobbinsKeymaster
I can’t get the http://www.immigration.gov.vn/ website to load either. Maybe it’s getting slammedDecember 5, 2017 at 3:16 pm NZDT #3814
Does appear to work. Looks like it’s US$25. But NZ isn’t in the drop-down list for valid countries yet (nor are any of the other newly added countries).December 6, 2017 at 1:39 am NZDT #3815KiwiwingsParticipant
Very cool! Have no immediate plans to return although wouldn’t mind getting a bit more caving in. Don’t know when that will happen.December 6, 2017 at 6:29 pm NZDT #3824Paul SpainKeymaster
This is great, will certainly make it easier. I’m seeing the website down too though.December 6, 2017 at 8:08 pm NZDT #3825
I think the links in the news article are wrong and I was too late to edit my post. The https one works OK.
Despite the article, it appears the form on the website hasn’t (yet) been updated to include the newly added qualifying countries.December 8, 2017 at 9:19 am NZDT #3827
Update: New Zealand can now be selected from the drop-down list of eligible countries.
The ‘official’ list has also been updated with the latest inclusionsDecember 8, 2017 at 11:56 am NZDT #3833December 17, 2017 at 2:36 pm NZDT #3853KiwimacParticipant
Good to know. I was there in August and September and I got the sticker in the passport before leaving NZ as the previous VOA system was worse – arrive off a long flight and wait ages in a big queue to get the sticker…!
This will be easier although perhaps not for multi entry which I often need.December 20, 2017 at 6:37 am NZDT #3864Paul SpainKeymaster

How long did it take to queue for it? Any recollection on the cost?
