What is a visa extension?
A visa extension entitles the holder to prolong their current stay in Vietnam with the purpose of investment, business, working, travelling, family visits or others without leaving the country.
What is a visa renewal?
Visa renewal is similar to visa extension in that it permits foreigners to lengthen their stay in Vietnam without having to leave the country.
If you renew your visa, however, you will be granted a new visa stamp and visa sticker on the passport with the new duration permission. As a result, the fee of visa renewal service is higher compared to visa extension as you have to pay stamping and visa ticker fees.
