Can somone tell me how this works ? I thought you could pay with credit card but its saying i have to go through a 3rd party. Am a bit paranoid about giving my bank details online so if you could give me a trusted link and some advice i`d be happy . Was gonna book my flight tonight but thought it would be wise to get the visa first .ive always got my visa in Asia for Vietnam so am not shure about the visa on arrival ... Cheers .

Paul,
I wrote about my VN 'visa on arrival' experience in my blog. It is under, "Off to SaiGon". I used this company, best price I could find. You need your flight details before you request your VN visa. I found the process quick and cost effective. It was more expensive using the San Francisco VN Consulate for a 30 day visa than the visa on arrival system.

Send me a PM if you have any questions. Good luck with your trip to VN.

Thanks Mike . I went through these http://www.visa-vietnam.org/ . 35 USD /THEN 50 USD on arrival , for a 3 month multiple entry . They will send the letter through email on monday .I did not have to show flight details either . I did not want to book a flight until i had the visa , just incase there was any problems. Anyway 6 weeks to go :)

Paul,
That is great news. I filled out the form and put down arrival date, airport, airline & flight number. Good to know that the Viets have simplified the visa process. I predict that by 2010 they will go the same visa system that Cambodia & Laos use. Fill out your form, pay your fee and they issue your visa on the spot. VN wants more visitors and making the visa easier will help increase their tourist numbers.

Have a great time in VN and send me a PM if you have any questions.
