I have a French passport which allows one visa-free entry to Vietnam for 15 days Vietnam visa exemption
My trip to Vietnam will include a less-than-15-day trip 13-Jan-2020 to 26-Jan-2020, then I leave for Malaysia for a couple of days 26-Jan to 30-Jan and back to Vietnam for a week 30-Jan to 5-Feb before flying out.
Can I use the visa-free permission to enter the first part, then another single-entry e-visa to return the second time ? I wouldn't prefer multiple entry because it cannot be done on line, and the visa-on-arrival line at the airport is ridiculously long. Single-entry e visa also costs less.
Another related question is : Can you apply for 2 single-entry e-visa with overlapping validity to replace a multiple-entry visa ?
