Validate your student visa

However, the visa must be validated by the Vietnam Immigration Department (VID) within 3 months of entering Vietnam at Vietnam Immigration Department (A18),333-337Nguyen Trai Street, Nguyen Cu Trinh Ward, District 1, HCM City.

Renewal of residence permit

  • If you wish to pursue your studies at the University of Economics and Law, kindly make an appointment with the External Relations Office (ERO) 2 months prior to the expiration of your visa.
  • After providing required documents, the ERO will check them with you. You will then submit your application to the Vietnam Immigration Department in HCMC, from June to August.
