In case, you are going to leave the country but your visa is expired for 1 or 2 days, you could leave Vietnam and pay a fine fee at the airport check-in point. The fine fee is around 10 – 20usd per day. There is no exact number about a fine fee in this case, as sometimes Immigration officers let you go without any punishment. How about Vietnam visa extensiondon’t worry about the fine fee, most of the visa agencies do not ask for extra money for the fine fee when you overstay in Vietnam for few days.

Could you leave Vietnam when your current Visa already expired over three days? In many cases, the Immigration officers at check-in point won’t let you leave Vietnam, they will ask you go back to do the exit visa and pay for fine fee first, you might have to change or cancel your flight itinerary.

What should you do when your Vietnam visa is expired?

Should you contact directly with Immigration department to solve out the fine by yourself when you Vietnam visa expired?

Follow the Immigration law in Vietnam, when you let your Vietnam visa expired, occasionally, you name will be put on the block list and limit your entry on next time. Also, it takes from 5 – 7 working days to solve the problem by yourself.

Another thing is depending on your previous entry ports, local Immigrate officer will refuse to extend your visa if you did check in from other ports which are not controlled by local Government. For example, you came to Vietnam and check-in in Noi Bai airport ( Ha Noi capital), so you can not apply to do visa extension by your self at another Immigration office.
