How can Romanian citizens get 6 months or 1 year visa on arrival to Vietnam?
Romanian nationals are almost impossible for the first time they apply for long term visa like 6 months or 1 year visa to stay in Vietnam years ago. They can only obtain easily a kind of visa, it is 3 months. Anyone wanting to stay longer than 3 months needs to get their visa extended and are often required with a lot of complex procedure. The documents could be investment certificate, invitation letter from sponsorship company in Vietnam to prove their appropriate reason of stay and so on.
During the last 2 years, the Immigration policy has loosened a bit for entry Vietnam visa. There were times when Romanian passport holders could submit their visa application to achieve 6 months multiple entries visa or 1 year multiple entries visa. We think we need to notice that, issuance for such long term visa must be done via Vietnam Embassy or through a commercial company; thus, the cost to get 6 months or 1 year visa approval letter were usually expensive but the continuity for having such Vietnam visas was unstable.
How is it different from applying for 6 months or 1 year visa on arrival to Vietnam?
