The followings are questions from customers all over the world asking for visa procedure which we collected and posted here for you for future reference. We continue to update more questions possible to make sure that you, (as travelers) coming to our country, will know exactly what to prepare prior to your trip.
The effective date will be on entry date (date give in the approval letter) or simply the date you arrive Vietnam as the approval date may be many days in advance prior to your date of arrival. From the entry date, you can delay your arrival but no longer than the duration of your whole stay approved. You are not normally allowed to enter Vietnam before the date of entry.
Very important as you cannot apply for a Vietnam visa if your passport is expired. However, for some cases, you still can plan yourself that by the date of passport expire, your Vietnam visa (traveling period) is expired as well then you can go back after finishing holiday in Vietnam to extend your passport.
Hand in the approval letter (the one agency gave you in advance), your pictures and pay required visa stamp fee then your passport to be stamped for a valid visa then you exit the airport.
Same for all once you are in the list of countries which need Vietnam visa.
Yes. Please review the list of visa exempt countries. If you are out of them, then of course, you need a Vietnam visa.
This greatly depends on each Embassy but normally should be a week or more.

Important note to whom arrives Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) airport
For this emergency, unlike arriving Hanoi, we can't have visa ready on spot for you and we have to keep your passport to return to you the next day. We make a full warranty however for you to enter the country safely though the cost is very very expensive.

To avoid such a rush, We recommends you to check and make sure you have an advanced visa by whatever way (Visa On Arrival or Visa at Embassy) to enter Vietnam.
This is a form where you should input exactly what required for. The clearer and more exact information you provided, the less trouble you will have, the less time you have to go back and forth.

Answer is definitely YES. Even if you just stay for one minute (!) whenever you exit to the entrance of airport then you must have a valid visa.
This will depend. If you just wait hour or some without exiting the airport then you do not but if you go out to stay in a hotel or just walking around then you certainly need it.
See anwers on question 14th and 15th above.
Yes you can for sure but you still need to arrange paperwork in advance (recommended). A tourist agency can help you with the paper called Letter of Approval then you get visa stamped at airport. This is different from Cambodia where you can have your visa stamped in more or less 30 mins without any advanced document.
Of course yes. Without passport, you cannot enter Vietnam definitely.

It is safe, fast, convenient, cost and time saving. The importance is you to decide the most suitable online payment to be the safest way.
Vietnam does not accept dual citizen so if you travel by what passport, you will need a visa based on that passport.

In this case, even you have a certificate of Swedish original but you are using an Australian passport to enter and later exit Vietnam, you will need a Vietnam visa for sure.

You won't need a visa (15 day exempt) if you use now Swedish passport.
You can get anywhere when you are connected to the internet world!
You can do the so called 'visa on arrival' system. Simply find for reputable agency in Vietnam and fill in the requested form, settle payment and they will send you a Letter of Approval enabling you to get stamped at airport on arrival. Please note, you must obtain a Letter of Approval in advance otherwise you are not allowed even the boarding into your plane.
Alternatively, you can go to Vietnam Embassy in Cambodia to have your visa there. They will tell you what exactly to do.
The Letter, in other word, is the Letter of Approval - a document issued by Vietnam Department of Immigration (A18) to certify that you are accepted to get Vietnam visa on arrival at airports (either Hanoi, Danang or Ho Chi Minh City). Without this letter, you can't have visa and you will have to return to your original departure. Make sure you have this before flying. In case of emergency, please refer to our urgent service
Yes, it is completely ok and you will save your time queuing at embassies and the like. Apart from exempted countries, you have to make sure you have a valid visa and doing online now is very popular.
You should have it as early as possible when you fix your traveling or business plan to avoid emergency which costs you alot. However, you can do your visa one week prior to your travelling date.
It will depend greatly on what nationality are you.
If you are in this exempted list then you donot need a visa then a valid passport is fine, no problem.
In case of not, then you need a visa, of course
Some officers may allow this but it is not 100% sure.
Thus, the best way is to obtain a new visa on arrival as soon as possible to avoid trouble
You of course yes but with one condition your family member must have a valid visa too.
This will depend
a) If you have already a valid Vietnam visa into your passport and the validity of your visa does not override the validity of your passport then it is ok or,
b) If you donot have a visa yet and you are going to ask for the 'visa on arrival' this is NOT possible as the Immigration requires, at least, your passport with 6 month validity.
You will not be able to board your flight. In case of luckiness, you are accepted by airlines to board but when you arrive at airports, they will send you back! Immagine this will be a big trouble and lost.
Thus, always remember to have a valid Vietnam visa in hand. These days, however, you even donot have to go to Embassy for it, you apply the visa on arrival but remember you NEED a prearranged document from travel agent in order to get it done on arrival. Without this letter, you will either have to pay alot or go back your original destination.
Yes, you can and for one letter of approval, you can enter either Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) or Danang airport.
