I. What makes your Vietnam e-visa application refused?

The success rate of applying for e-visa to Vietnam is quite high, but it does not mean that every of your application for this type of visa will be approved. Failure to get an e-visa may put you in a full load of stress as you must find another way to obtain a valid visa for Vietnam and there is nothing to guarantee that you will successfully obtain the visa then.

Here are common mistakes when applying for e-visa that may cause your application for Vietnam e-visa denied.

1. Spelling mistakes or incorrect details in e-visa application form

It is essential that every detail included in the online form for an e-visa to Vietnam must be spelled correctly. The details to be provided in such an online form are quite simple but need to be exactly as appeared on the passport.

  • Full name
  • Passport number
  • Expiry date
  • Date of birth

If you enter any of these details incorrectly, it may result in rejection of your Vietnam e-visa application. Even if it is approved, your entry into Vietnam will be refused due to non-match between your passport and visa details.

To avoid this mistake, seeking for the service of specialized agencies with experience in completing e-visa applications is highly recommended, as with their assistance, your chances of getting e-visa refused will be reduced.

2. The photo does not meet its requirements

When applying online for an e-visa to Vietnam, you are required to upload a soft copy of your passport-style photo. This photo must meet the strict e-visa photo requirements as follows:

  • The photo should have a size of 4 x 6 cm or 2 x 2 inches.
  • The format should either be GIF or JPG.
  • It must not exceed 2 MB in size.
  • There should be no filter and black and white photo is not permitted.
  • The background should be plain.

The issue with e-visa picture is a major reason why e-visa applications are rejected. If this happens, a new application should be made, and of course, you will need to pay the visa fee twice as the visa fee for the denied application is not refunded.
