Hi, can you please tell me if the Vietnam Visa on arrival can be used at a land border between Vietnam and China such as the Friendship border Dong Dang / Ping Xian

Thanks in advance,
Francine

Hi Francine,

I am afraid that it is impossible.

In case of indispensable, you can pay the border guards for passing. But it's not legally safe.

Better get a Visa.

Best regards,
Windy

P/S: If you want to visit Vietnam, i can recommend you some hotels with reasonable rates.

Thank you so much!!

For others who may need help the staff at The New Lotusland Hostel in Nanning China have offered to get the Vietnam Visa processed for me.

Important Note

It is important to note that this is not a Visa on Entry type Vietnam Visa, therefore it can only be used at airports and NOT land borders.

I'm not yet sure how much it will cost or how long I can expect the process to take but I will post it when this information comes to hand.

Thanks again,
Francine

Francine,
Every GH I saw in Phnom Penh will get your VN visa for you. Same with Laos. At a price. The 'real price' for a 30 day VN visa is $25, but you will not get it for that. Your hostel will add a fee to what they pay, but it will save you 2 trips to the VN Embassy or Consulate. They usually charge more for fast service. This visa can be used at land borders or airports.

The online VN 'visa on arrival' is only good at airports. You do not need any help with this visa. Just follow the steps online. My blog covers my experience flying into SGN.

Good luck with your trip to VN.

The stamping for a Vietnam visa is now $45 not $25. Prices changed earlier this month.
