Getting Started


# Install with yarn
yarn add vee-validate

# Install with npm
npm install vee-validate --save

Vue version support

The main v4 version supports Vue 3.x only, for previous versions of Vue, check the following the table

vue Version vee-validate version Documentation Link
2.x 2.x or 3.x v2 or v3
3.x 4.x v4


vee-validate offers two styles to integrate form validation into your Vue.js apps.

Composition API

If you want more fine grained control, you can use useField function to compose validation logic into your component:

<script setup>
// MyInputComponent.vue
import { useField } from 'vee-validate';

const props = defineProps<{
  name: string;

// Validator function
const isRequired = value => (value ? true : 'This field is required');

const { value, errorMessage } = useField(, isRequired);

  <input v-model="value" />
  <span>{{ errorMessage }}</span>

Then you can you can use useForm to make your form component automatically pick up your input fields declared with useField and manage them:

<script setup>
import { useForm } from 'vee-validate';
import MyInputComponent from '@/components/MyInputComponent.vue';

const { handleSubmit } = useForm();

const onSubmit = handleSubmit(values => {
  // Submit to API
  console.log(values); // { email: '' }

  <form @submit="onSubmit">
    <MyInputComponent name="email" />

You can do so much more than this, for more info check the composition API documentation.

Declarative Components

Higher-order components are better suited for most of your cases. Register the Field and Form components and create a simple required validator:

import { Field, Form } from 'vee-validate';

export default {
  components: {
  methods: {
    isRequired(value) {
      return value ? true : 'This field is required';

Then use the Form and Field components to render your form:

<Form v-slot="{ errors }">
  <Field name="email" :rules="isRequired" />

  <span>{{ }}</span>

The Field component renders an input of type text by default but you can control that
