Visa on Arrival Vietnam



All nationalities, with exception of some Asian nationals, must have a tourist visa to enter Vietnam. You may apply for a visa through a Vietnamese embassy or consulate in your country. You are required to submit an application form with two passport-size photos, your passport, and fee to process the visa. If you do not want to send off your passport or need your passport for your current travel, Flight Travel can assist you to obtain a visa-on-arrival (single as well as multiple-entry). For other land and river borders, a visa must be obtained in advance.

This is also applicable for the airlines to issue the air-ticket and for the hotels to prepare the check-in procedure. Please make sure your passport is valid more than 6 months from the date of arrival in each country you are visiting.
