Vietnam visa for Canadian citizens

By Kim Clara

Vietnam visa for Canadian citizens can be taken easily by using one of three ways: getting visa at Vietnam Embassy/ Consulate in Canada, Vietnam E-visa or Vietnam visa on arrival.


Vietnam visa at Vietnam embassy/consulate in Canada


Contact information of Vietnam Embassy in Ottawa, Canada


  • Address: 470 Wilbrod Street, Ottawa, Ontario, K1N 6M8, CANADA
  • Phone: (1613) 236 0772
  • Fax: (1613) 236 2704
  • Email: or


I’m sure that everyone is familiar with this way as it is the traditional method to get the visa to not only Vietnam but other countries. Citizens of Canada just pay a visit to the Embassy then follow the instruction of officials there then they will have the visa stamped on passport before departure. Generally Canadian citizens have to spend 05-07 working days waiting for the visa to be issued.


Vietnam E-visa


Fortunately, Canada has officially become one of the countries which is applicable for Vietnam E-visa since this month, February 2019. From now on, every Canadian passport holder has one more choice when getting Vietnam visa – submit the request on the official website of the Immigration Department.


The procedure for E-visa  is relatively simple and easy. All they need to do are filling out the electric form, paying non-refundable fee online (25 USD) and waiting 03 working days for their visa.


Note: Canadian applicants will get the 1-month single-entry tourist visa when submitting for Vietnam E-visa.


Vietnam visa on arrival


Visa on arrival is picked up at the arrival airport and is applicable for those who are the Canadian passport holders. It is said that this alternative way is more economical and convenient than the first traditional option as the application process is carried out online. It is a special advantage for those who live far from the Vietnam Embassy/ Consulate in Canada.


When it comes to applying visa to Vietnam for Canadian passport holders, you need to send your passport copy to the email or fill in an online application form here.


By using this way of getting Vietnam visa, it just takes at least 2-3 days for normal processing and even if you need it for urgent processing, it can take only 1 day or only 4 working hours for super urgent service to get an approval letter issued by Vietnam Immigration Department.  If you want to take urgent one, please contact us for further information


After the visa approval letter is sent to your email, check carefully then print it oout to bring to Vietnam. At Vietnam international airport, Canadian citizens have to submit the approval letter, filled Vietnamese visa application form, original passport, 2 4*6 passport-sized photos and make payment for stamping fee to stamp visa on passport.
