I wanted to provide an update on the current visa application process for Vietnam for those living in Taipei.
The Vietnam Economic and Culture Office is located a short walk from Songjiang-Nanjing MRT station (green line). The office's address is:
104, Taipei City, Zhongshan District, Songjiang Rd, 65號
The office is open for visa applications from 9:30-12 and 2-4:30. The visa office is located on the 3F of the building.
It cost me (Australian citizen) $1350 NTD for a 30-day visa. I'm not sure if it is different for other nationalities. The visa process requires you to submit your application online and then printing out a hard copy. There is one computer in the office with a printer connected that you can use to do this, however, it is quite slow and time-consuming. I'd recommend going to the website and printing it out before arriving at the office. The form can be accessed here:
You need to bring 2x passport photos, as well as a copy of your passport. There is a copier at the office that is free to use.
Passport and visa can be collected after two business days. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
