After 3 to 5 days you will receive your Visa through email, print it out and bring it along when you travel to Vietnam. Vietnam E-visa is valid for maximum of 30-day travel, single entry. Please email us a copy of your e-visa so as we can help to double check again your information to avoid any trouble later.

Option 2: Visa on arrvival

What is commonly called a ‘visa-on-arrival’ for Vietnam does, in fact, require prior approval. Citizens of most countries, though not all, can obtain an approval letter from the Vietnam Immigration Office (handled by Sky Asia Travel for our clients) and can arrive carrying that letter, along with 02 passport photos, USD 25 for a standard tourist visa for 30 days, and a valid passport. You will need to fill out a standard visa application form (available at the airport) and can receive your visa there.

Option 3: visa in advance or Embassy Visa

We send you a form requesting basic information (full name, passport details and so on). You fill in one for each person and send them to me. I will then apply for the visas at the Immigration Office in Hanoi. About five working days later, I’ll receive the approval paper and will fax it to the Vietnamese Embassy in your country. I’ll then notify you to send your passports to the Embassy by post with a cheque to pay the visa stamp. Alternatively, you can pick up your visas in person. Please ring the Embassy for their opening hours, cost of visa stamps and for other arrangements.

Option 4: Do it yourself

This option is only available to people living in a country with a Vietnamese Embassy. If you prefer to obtain a visa by yourself, feel free to do so. Please contact the Embassy for application information, their opening hours, cost of visa stamps and for other arrangements.
