Should I Apply Vietnam Visa At The Embassy Or Though A Travel Agent?

Visa is always a headache when people have a demand of tourism or business. Many people choose a destination instead of another one just because the simple process of visa. In recent years, Vietnam Government has launched many decrees to make the visa procedure as easy as possible to attract more travelers coming to the country. It includes E-visa and visa on arrival. Both types of visa can be applied online through a travel agent, and it is very simple to do. So, the question is: Between Visa at the embassy and visa online through a travel agent, what is the difference? And which one is better?

Apply Vietnam visa at the embassy and apply online through a travel agent can get the same result – the visa to Vietnam, but each method has its own pros and cons. Therefore, basing your real situation, you can choose the suitable one.

It is easy to get in touch with travel agent staff through chat support in the website, email, etc. So, if you want to ask something, or revise your application, it can be done easily.

 

If you are living in the city which is near Vietnam embassy, you should come to the embassy to apply visa. Because the embassy is the most reliable organization outside Vietnam, you can ask them for a Vietnam visa, and prepare for your trip soon.

However, in some case, your country doesn’t have the Vietnam embassy, or you are far away from the embassy, my advice is applying online. As you see in the comparation table, applying online have much advantages than applying at the embassy. The online thing which makes the you worry is: which travel agent you can trust in?

There are many travel agents can process your visa online. However, the price will be different. With the same approval letter of 1 month single entry, some travel agents collect 12 USD, 18 USD or even 25 USD. You should check their price and choose the good one. You can use our price to make a comparison.

Another point is support service. It shows that the travel agent you are contacting is active or inactive, response immediately or difficult to contact, and how professional they are. You can leave the travel agent a message, an email or a chat. If you receive their response quick with the information that you need, you surely can trust in this agent.
