VFS Global, the exclusive service provider to the Embassy of Vietnam in India recently revealed its plan of launching the very first official and exclusive electronic Visa on Arrival or eVOA in Vietnam. The eVOA would act as the digital solution for the convenience and comfort of visitors travelling to Vietnam.
The digitally integrated advanced solution developed by VFS Global will present the Visa on Arrival applicants with a digital wallet or a digital locker. The digital wallet or locker will ensure high measures of data security and data protection. The digital device will include their live facial biometric capture, scanned copies of their passport and the ultimate receipt of their electronic Visa on Arrival approval letters. The eVOA letter will have to be pre-approved and would be included in the digital device after approval. The portal will also allow consumers to make online payments as required.
Travellers eligible to travel can apply for the Vietnam electronic Visa on Arrival service before their departure to Vietnam through the online website. The application can be made from the traveller’s specific and selected location from any corner of the world. Applications can be made digitally through personal mobile phones, laptops or computers in a properly safe and secure manner.
Chris Dix, Head of Business Development, VFS Global said in a press brief that the organization considers joining their hands and extending their relationship with the Vietnam authorities as a great opportunity. The company thinks that the new electronic visa on arrival facility will further enhance the chance of travellers to experience the beautiful and culturally enriched country of Vietnam. He also added that by using VFS Global’s position and expertise as the global leader in visa application services, the new service will also elevate ease of access and make the visa application process more convenient for people travelling to Vietnam.
Additionally, for any visitor seeking an urgent trip to Vietnam, a feature of special priority services is available on the online portal. The special service can be availed on the same day as well as the next day of approval. The cost of special priority services remains slightly higher than that of the general visa processing service.
