Get ready for your Vietnam visa on arrival

As you prepare to land in Vietnam you must have thought of the Vietnam visa as a legal document needed for your travel to Vietnam. By default it is applied at the Vietnam embassy/consulate where one has to fill up forms and make necessary payments before their visa application is forwarded to the immigration department of Vietnam for further processing. This procedure can get boring and exhausting during peak seasons with the endless queues of aspiring tourists waiting to be served a chance to apply for the visa. In every peak season many visa applicants cancel their application as a result of long wait which kills their patience. Luckily, you do not have to be with them at the queues anymore.

Vietnam visa on arrival service was introduced to help ease pressure at the embassies where hundreds of visa applicants used to line up to make applications for their Vietnam visas. Instead, one can apply for their visa online via websites of visa agents that work in hand with the immigration department of Vietnam.

How to prepare for the Vietnam visa on arrival service

Firstly it is important to mention that this service is available to many countries across the world, but not all are included in the listing. You can always check with the online visa agents on whether your country of residence is included among those signed up for visa on arrival service.

If your country is among those listed for the service, you may proceed by the following steps:

  1. Ensure you have a valid visa that you acquired more than six months ago

  2. Prepare two of your most recent passport photos, which must not be older than six months.

  3. Find a reputable online visa agent and download the visa application form from their website.

  4. Fill up the visa application form and send it back to the agent via email in softcopy form.

  5. Pay the visa service fees with the agent and allow for up to 48 working hours before you receive the letter of approval via email or fax.
Obtaining your Vietnam visa:

Once you have your letter of approval in your email, you are required to download and print it to hardcopy. This way you will be needed to present it as you board a plane set for Vietnam. Upon your arrival at the international airport in Vietnam, which could either be Da Nang, Tan Son Nhat or Noi Bai you should walk straight to the Landing visa office and present the printed letter of approval. Other documents you should present along with it include your passport and two of your passport photos. Finally, pay the visa stamping fee and you will have your Vietnam visa stamped on your passport.


Your visa application can get cancelled if there are traces of inconsistencies in your data. As such, you should always ensure you are giving valid information in your application.

Always ensure your passport is valid before using it in your visa application.
