How to get Vietnam visa?

1. Get visa at Vietnam Embassy

Vietnam Embassies are located in different countries worldwide. Nationals from a country that has a Vietnam Embassy can apply in person there. The procedure before the visa is issued can take from 3-6 working days, depending on different Embassies. Documents to be presented as prerequisite for a visa consist of valid original passport, visa application form to be fully filled at the Embassy, passport-sized photos and visa fee.

In case your country does not have a Vietnam Embassy or your residence is too far away from the embassy, you can think of applying online for a visa to save time and travel expenses. For online application, you pay service fee online to the agent providing the visa service and get visa approval letter with a reference number and your  entry details on it. This letter certifies your official right to be issued visa on arrival at any of Vietnam international airports. However, visa on arrival is only applicable when you travel to Vietnam by air. At the airport, you will be required to present your original passport, fully filled entry and exit form, passport-sized photos and visa approval letter to get visa stamped into your passport.
