When your Vietnam visa comes to expire, you may want to lengthen your stay without exiting the country to reapply for a new one. In trying to provide customers with best visa service, evietnamvisa.org also helps travelers to extend their visa when necessary. However, the maximum length of visa period you can get extended is 3 months only due to limitation of Immigration Department.
In search of Vietnam visa extension service, you may hear about 2 terms “visa extension” and “visa renewal”. Then what’s the difference between these two methods:
Visa extension: your passport will be stamped with a new duration of stay. You can extend visa in either one or three more months. The extension fee is much cheaper than renewal one but it has the same validity as the visa renewal so you can save more money with applying for Vietnam visa extension than Vietnam visa renewal.
Visa renewal: you will be granted with a new visa sticker on your passport with a new duration of stay. Visa renewal fee is higher than visa extension fee because we have to pay the stamping fee and visa sticker for you. Visa renewal is suitable for those who enter Vietnam with visa exemption at the beginning but wish to stay longer after the permitted time or those who wish to get multiple entry visa in 1 month or 3 months.
