Can you get a visa on arrival?

Yes, if you fly into VN. My blog covers my 'visa on arrival' into Tan Son Nhut. If you cross overland, you must arrange your VN visa before hitting the border. Phnom Penh & Sihanoukville are probably the cheapest and fastest places to buy your VN visa.

Good luck with your planning.

yes, as long as you arrive by air, VOA is the cheapest way to go. I have noticed that the line at Saigon Airport is quite a bit longer than the one in Hanoi. You must pre-arrange this VOA (unlike other SE Asian countries like Laos). Contact any travel agent in Saigon or Hanoi

I just wanted to let people know that the Vietnam visa on arrival worked out fine for my companion and I when we arrived in Saigon by air a couple weeks ago. After seeking the same type of information about Vietnam visas a friend told me about an online site that he and his girlfriend used in December 2009. I used this online service in July 2010 for pre-approval of a multiple entry visa. It would have cost me more money in lost work time, a night's hotel and train tickets than to pay the $25 for this online service. Note that it is much cheaper if you simply want a single entry visa.

My approval letter came back within two days, I took it and two passport sized photos, paid $50 cash USD and received my multiple entry visa. (I needed multiple entry so that I could leave for Cambodia and return again into Vietnam).
