Applying a Vietnam visa is very simple now

Visa on arrival is a type of visa that allows the holder to get visa at the airport on the arrival date. To get visa at the airport, you must have a document, which is called “visa approval letter” issued by the Immigration Department. You apply this letter before coming to Vietnam at least 2 working days. After 2 working days processing, you get this document through email, then you print this document out, and prepare 2 photos (4 x 6 cm) to glue on the “visa application form”. When you board the airplane, you show the “visa approval letter” to get on (some airlines require this letter to allow you enter the airplane. Without it, you can be refused to board). When you come to Vietnam, you follow the sign board to come to the “visa on arrival counter”. This counter is the place to pick up your visa (the name of this counter is different in different airports, see where to pick up visa on arrival). At the “visa on arrival counter”, you submit “visa approval letter” + “visa application form” + original passport, then waiting to be called. When the officer calls your name, you come to the cashier counter and pay “stamp fee” (please prepare cash in US dollards), then you received your passport with visa. Then you come to the “Passport Control counter”, do the Immigration check and enter Vietnam.
