Questions:vietnam visa length of stay

Mr. Alan Bandola arrived Vietnam last  Feb. 20, 2017, he’s holding an NN3 visa category (  multiple entries), but we are not sure on the length of stay in Vietnam as there are no remarks indicated on his passport.

Can you help us check on this, please? You may refer to below visa arrival stamp, Vietnam visa and some information I got from the internet for your validation.


Thank you for contacting us! We are happy to answer your questions as below.

When foreign people enter Vietnam, they will get an immigration seal (which is in blue ink on the nearby page of the temporary valid visa on your passport) on their passport to indicate the duration that they can stay in Vietnam. Normally, the length of stay is identical to the quoted validity length of the visa. However, for six-month Vietnam visa or one-year validity length upward types, there might be a different regulations (e.g. the allowed resident duration of each entry may not be more than 90 days). For example, US residents having a one-year visa for Vietnam are permitted to stay less than 90 days for any time they enter Vietnam. Therefore, whenever they arrive Vietnam airport, the immigration officer in charge put a mark as the seals stating the deadline date of leaving Vietnam for that entry.

For your case, please double check the other blue seal that helps to know when to be the expire date of his current entry in Vietnam.
