General Information for Kazakh travelers to get Vietnam visa at the Vietnam Embassy in Astana, Kazakhstan

Vietnam has opened its embassies in more than 70 nations across the globe, including Kazakhstan. That is why Kazakh inhabitants who plan to pay Vietnam a visit can come directly to the embassy to apply for a visa to Vietnam.

In order to obtain this type of visa, applicants need to fill in the required forms first, submit relevant documents and then settle the payment for mandatory fees. Visitors need to keep in mind that having a valid passport with at least six months of validity is a must unless they want to be rejected by the Immigration Department. During the visa processing time, they will be asked to complete the visa application form (click here to see an official sample) as well as mention the place of submission and collection of visa. Apart from the required documents, applicants also have to hand in their passport, a self-address envelope, and one photo which is taken within six months from the date they make the application.

Moreover, people will be required to pay the fees for the embassy to process their visa. Travelers should remember that these fees can be varied from embassy to embassy, so it is essential to check with the Vietnam Embassy before arriving. It then takes about five business days to process the documents. After that, Kazakh citizens will get their visa stamped onto their passport if there is nothing wrong happening.

If Kazakh residents are looking for the location of Vietnam Embassy in Kazakhstan, they can see below for the information of the embassy.

• Address: "Arman" Business Center, 6 Sary-Arka Str., Astana, Kazakhstan
• Tel: +7 7172 660375
• Fax: +7 7172 660379
• E-Mail: vnemb.kz@mofa.gov.vn
• Web: www.mofa.gov.vn/vnemb.kz

However, one of the drawbacks of getting a visa at the embassy is that the procedure is not convenient for the people who reside far from the embassy location. It would be hard for them to go back and forth between their home and the Vietnam Embassy several times. In addition, there are other disadvantages of requesting a Vietnam visa through the embassy. Visitors will have to send their original passport to the embassy, and there is a possibility that they might lose their document through this process. Also, the embassy takes a longer time to handle all the documents.

In this case, Kazakhs who are currently living far away from the Vietnam Embassy can opt for another option of getting Vietnam visa which is visa on arrival for Vietnam. To apply for this kind of visa, people can get in touch with a travel agency based in Vietnam like Greenvisa.io. Then, applicants only need to complete an online application form and submit it as well as settle the payment for their visa to be processed. After the request of their visa is approved, an approval letter will be sent to them via email. Travelers are advised to check this document carefully to find out if there is any mistake on this so the agency can fix it immediately.

Then, visitors from Kazakhstan need to print it out before traveling to Vietnam. Once they arrive at Vietnam international airport, they are required to provide their approval letter as well as the visa stamping fee at the Visa On Arrival counter to collect their Vietnam visa.
