If applying through the embassy, business travelers will need to submit a sponsorship letter by a licensed Vietnamese company. This letter can come from your trade partner or your employer. 

However, if you apply online, this sponsorship letter is not required [1] and all business visas will be processed as normal. Currently, the business visa is categorized under DN type [2] and will be valid for a maximum of 3 months.
