Vietnam visa information for international students

1. Entry Visa Procedures

For international students who are currently in their home country, and have been enrolled at Ton Duc Thang University to study:

  • Provide a copy of the passport
  • Other supporting documents (arranged by TDTU)
  • Applicants are required to pay the tuition fees for the forthcoming semester. Proof of payment is required.

TDTU Vietnam will send you the soft copy of the approval correspondence from the Vietnamese Immigration Department. You will submit it together with your visa application form, original passport, and visa payment. You will then be required to collect your visa at the Vietnamese Embassy in your home country.

In case there is no Vietnamese government office in your country, it’s essential to inform us as soon as possible so we can organize for your pre-visa approval letter to indicate the location on arrival in Vietnam where you can collect and pay for your student visa.

  • 35 USD for a 3-month single entry visa
