For tourist and business Vietnam visa, the extension or renewal is only applicable for 1 month or 3 months (single/multiple entry).

The difference between visa extension and renewal, this question must not be hard for many foreign travelers who often have to apply for a visa to enter one’s country. They may answer shortly that visa renewal is needed when a visitor wants to re-enter the country while visa extension is preferred for those who do not want to leave the country when their visa is coming to expire. This is partly true, because in fact a foreigner may either renew or extend their visa during their stay in Vietnam. Then what makes difference between Vietnam visa renewal and Vietnam visa extension?
Vietnam visa renewal:
- The type of visa you can get renewed is single or multiple entry visa
- You will get a new page sticker placed on your passport with its new duration
- Vietnam visa renewal is beneficial especially for those who are exempted from Vietnam visa for 15 days or 30 days such as Malaysian, Singaporean, Russian, etc.
Vietnam visa extension:
- The type of visa you can get extended is single entry visa only
- You will get a stamp (not a sticker) showing a new length of stay in Vietnam. And it has also maximum for 3 months
- The visa extension fee is cheaper than Vietnam visa renewal.

Visa extensions officially cost a little money, but it is easier to pay more and sort this out through a travel agency. Getting the stamp yourself can be a bureaucratic nightmare. In theory you should be able to extend your visa in any provincial capital. In practice it goes smoothest in major cities, such as HCMC, Hanoi, Danang and Hue, which cater to regular visitors.
