Vietnam visa land entry confused

Travel Forums Asia Vietnam visa land entry confused

Hi
Can anyone help?
I plan to get the bus from Nanning to Hanoi, and read countless times that you cannot get visa on arrival when travelling by land into Vietnam. All sites seem to state that you must have your visa arranged prior to entry.... Which is fine, but when I try and look into sorting a visa through websites, they seem to all say you can do the forms online but must take your passport photos to the airport and its not very clear how to actually get a visa when travelling in by land.

And on top of that most forum posts seemed to be very dated so I'm not sure how helpful they are now?

Anyone got any info on this?

Thanks

Hi Red, this is true. You need a visa before you arrive, don't panic about arranging it in the UK/online though

The person you buy your bus ticket off will be able to sort it out, no paper work or questions... should cost about $50USD and take 24 hours max

Cheers

Nick
