Along with the form, you will have to submit one recent passport sized photograph, one self-addressed envelope, and your original passport. To apply for Visa from the embassy, you must hold a valid and original passport. Your passport must have a validity of six months and a few spare pages for stamping purposes. You will also have to pay the Visa fees and the fees can be paid in favor of the Vietnam embassy in Maldives by way of a money order or cashier’s check.
The embassy will take at least five working days to process your documents. Once the documents are processed, you will be issued a fully stamped Visa. The major benefit of applying for Visa through the embassy is that you can get hold of a fully stamped Visa before leaving for Vietnam. However, this process is expensive and time-consuming.
