Many readers said they have no problems with Vietnam's e-visa procedures, or the website's Vietnamese name, but want longer stay.

"I've been traveling Vietnam since June of 2022 and never once had a problem with e-visa while using the national immigration portal. Always receive my new visa within 3 working days. Now, if only the government would go back to the 90-day multiple entry visa."

"I have used the e-visa about a dozen times. It's easy and clear. The longest I had to wait was 5 days as I submitted once on a Friday afternoon. So don't winge if you don't follow the photo requirements."

"The name should be more comprehensive and clearly reference the government background. Look at the Cambodia site as an example. The process itself works good, if you start on time (there you have it) there is no need for brokers or agents."

"I never had a problem with the official e-visa web-site, and I've been using it for nine months now, and I get the new e-visa within 3 business days. Who cares how non-memorable the URL is. Just google "E Visa Vietnam" and you will find it."
none of your business

"The issue is neither the website nor the approval duration. The issue is the short-term permit of only 30 days."
