Visa on Arrival

The below information is only relevant to participants coming from countries who do not have a free tourist visa agreement with Vietnam.

What is a ‘Visa on Arrival‘?: this is most likely the easiest way to obtain your visa without having to chase down embassies, consulates and the like prior to your trip, and is a valid alternative when applying for a tourist visa. The entry visa will be stamped on your passport as you pass through our immigration checkpoint. This is a single entry visa, valid for thirty days.

How to get a Visa on Arrival: We offer this kind of service, whereby we obtain what is called an “Approval Letter” for you from the Viet Nam Immigration Department in Hanoi. After we obtain the approval for you, we will forward you a copy by email. Copies of the same document will be forwarded on your behalf to Vietnam immigration checkpoints at our International Airports, so that when you arrive in Viet Nam, the Immigration officers will have those documents on hand and will be able to issue your entry visa expediently.

Requirement: after you register and pay for this service, please inform us by email below required information to proceed:

  • Your title (Mr./Mrs.):
  • Your name exactly as it appears in your passport:
  • Date of birth:
  • Nationality:
  • Passport No. (Valid at least 06 months):
  • Proposed date of arrival:

How it works:

After receiving your information and payment, we will process the visa immediately. It will takes 3 working days to abtain the Approval letter.

After approval, we will email you a copy of the Approval letter. Please remember to bring a print copy of the Approval letter and 2 photos and pay $25/person for stamp at immigration counter at the airport upon your arrival.

Price: 17 US$/ person
