Plan Ahead

The first and most important thing to do if you’re planning on doing a visa run is to plan ahead. You’ll need to have your passport and all of the necessary documents with you, as well as enough money to cover the cost of the visa and any other associated fees. It’s also a good idea to have a backup plan in case something goes wrong. For example, if your flight gets canceled or you miss your bus, having a backup plan will help ensure that you don’t end up stranded in a foreign country without a valid visa.

Each country has different requirements for entry, so you must research the requirements for Vietnam before you attempt to enter the country. One of the most important requirements is having a valid passport. Your passport should be valid for at least six months from the date of your planned arrival in Vietnam. You’ll also need two passport-sized photos and proof of onward travel, such as an airline ticket or bus ticket out of Vietnam. It’s also a good idea to have some extra cash on hand in case of emergencies.

Work With a Visa Agent

If you don’t have the time or energy to handle the visa run yourself, you can always hire a visa agent to take care of everything for you. This is highly recommended if you’ve never done a visa run before. A good visa agent will be able to guide you through the entire process, ensuring that everything goes smoothly. They can also provide helpful advice on where to stay and what documents are required for entry. This can save you a lot of time and hassle, so it’s worth considering.

Finally, it’s important to check the weather forecast before you leave on your visa run. If there are delays or cancellations due to bad weather, you could end up stranded in a foreign country for a longer period than you originally planned. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, so make sure that you check the forecast before you leave.

Get Your Vietnam Visa Ahead of Time

Perhaps the most important tip for successfully completing a visa run is to get your visa ahead of time. You can apply for your Vietnamese visa online or at your nearest Vietnamese embassy or consulate. Applying for your visa online is generally quicker and easier, but it’s always best to check with your specific embassy or consulate to find out what their requirements are. Getting your visa ahead of time will help ensure that everything goes smoothly when you arrive in Vietnam.

A visa run is a process of leaving and re-entering a country to renew a visa. This is a common practice for travelers in Vietnam who want to extend their stay. To do a successful visa run, travelers must first plan their trip and make sure they have all the necessary documents. Depending on the country, travelers may need to apply for a visa in advance or obtain a visa on arrival. When leaving Vietnam, travelers must remember to have their passport stamped at the airport. Upon re-entering Vietnam, travelers will need to present their passport and visa to the immigration officer.

Wow, sounds like a lot of work! I guess I’ll just stay in Vietnam forever then. Who needs to go on vacation anyway? All this planning and paperwork is too much for me.

Visas are a pain. I’m glad to see that you’re advising people how to do them right! I just wish Vietnam brought back their 90 day visas so I don’t have to do a visa run every 30 days.

Is a visa agent similar to an immigration lawyer? I have never heard of such a thing but maybe they are one in the same thing and that is just what we call it around here?

@douknowhat A visa agent is not the same as an immigration lawyer. While both can assist with visa-related matters, an immigration lawyer is trained and licensed to provide legal advice and represent clients in legal proceedings, whereas a visa agent typically focuses on visa applications and processing.

I’m an expat in Vietnam, and I just wanted to say that this is SO helpful. I’m always looking for ways to save money when I travel, and the visa run was something I was always afraid of trying to do myself. Thank you so much!

I thought it was a lot harder and more complicated than it really is. This is actually great news because a family member of mine is looking to relocate to Vietnam! Going to share this with him.
