Hi, I am going to travel to Vietnam next month. As I know I need a visa to enter Vietnam, so I am wondering two applying ways to have visa. Should I apply for Vietnam visa on arrival or though embassy? Any answer from you will be appreciated!


According to immigration policy of Vietnam, foreigners can choose between visa on arrival and embassy visa when applying for visa for Vietnam.  In order to select a suitable visa type, foreigners are recommended studying general information both two visa types.

   1.   Who should get visa on arrival/embassy visa?

As noted clearly at immigration law, Vietnam visa upon arrival is only available at international airport of Vietnam only. In the other words, this visa type is a suitable option for foreigners who depart to Vietnam by plane from any country on the world. Embassy visa is applied at embassy of Vietnam. Getting this visa type, foreigners will have a valid visa before coming to Vietnam. Actually, Vietnam embassy visa is more complicated than on arrival visa and this visa type is highly suggested for those who use train, bus, ship or car to Vietnam. With those means of transportation, foreigners cannot get visa on arrival as this visa type is not served at land or sea border of Vietnam.

   2.   What are required documents to get visa on arrival/through embassy?

Besides passport, photos which are similar things that foreigners must prepare to get visa, you have to get ready some other things as below:

Visa on arrival: a Vietnam visa approval letter issued by the Immigration Department of Vietnam and an application for entry and exit Vietnam are required. Normally, foreigners can receive this application together with the visa letter.

Embassy visa: a visa application regulated by the embassy is necessary for every foreigner. In addition, if you come from Africa or Central East countries, you also need to have some extra document that base on embassy’s policy.

   3.   What are steps to get visa on arrival or through embassy?

Getting visa at embassy requires foreigners going directly to there in working time. You then submit all documents and pay visa fee to staff working there. As it takes a long time to process your visa request, you can go home during waiting time and then come back the embassy afterward to pick up visa result.
