How long does it take to extend a Vietnam visa?

For complete and valid dossiers, according to regulations, after about 5 working days (excluding weekends and statutory holidays), the visa renewal results will be available. In case the documents are invalid or insufficient, the immigration officer will ask for additional documents and the Vietnam visa renewal time may take longer than expected.

In addition, if you apply for a visa renewal yourself, it may take 2 to 5 working days to prepare your application. Thus, the total time to apply for a visa renewal can take from 7-10 days when you do the procedures yourself. Therefore, to avoid overstaying your Vietnam visa, foreigners need to apply for an extension soon to rest assured to stay in Vietnam as well as proactively anticipate other situations, such as applying for a work permit, making a temporary residence card, carrying marriage procedures, working, etc.
