I have a French passport that allows a visa-free entry into Vietnam for 15 days
Vietnam visa exemption
My trip to Vietnam involves a less than 15-day trip from January 13, 2020 to January 26, 2020. Then I travel to Malaysia and back to Vietnam for a few days from January 26 to January 30, week 30-Jan until 5-Feb before departure.
Can I use the visa-free permit to enter the first part and then another one-time e-visa to return for the second time? I would not prefer multiple entry, as this is not possible online and the visa-on-arrival line at the airport is ridiculously long. The simple entry visa also costs less.
Another related question is: Can you apply for two single-entry e-visas with overlapping validity to replace a multiple-entry visa?
