I just received my Vietnam visa today, I'm leaving on the 5th of December. I noticed that my visa was missing some information (in the big white space) while I was referencing a similar image online.
I'm now told the big white space is called the MRZ.
Is this going to cause any problems?
I'm in Chicago and had to receive the visa by mail from New York. I doubt I'd be able to get a replacement before I depart on Tuesday.
My last trip I did the visa on arrival, and the visa I received looked different than this one. I just want to make sure I'm good to go before I begin my trip.
Is not having my passport information in the MRZ going to cause any problems?
I have contacted the Consulate in New York with this email:
Hello, I received my Visa on Saturday. I noticed that none of my passport information was included in the big white space at the bottom of the visa (which I believe is called the MRZ). I attached a picture of what I'm talking about. Is this going to cause any problems not having my information there? Thanks, OP
And I received this in reply
It's consulat of vietnam visa. Thanks
Not sure how to take that reply. But it seems like it won't matter.
To be safe, who can I contact further to reassure that this won't be a problem?
