Hello all :)

We're wondering what the situation is (if any) on visas for Vietnam - hope someone can guide us as to what to do...

There are so many versions of what is required, it would be great to know some specifics, like:

- Do we need a visa to enter Vietnam?

If we do,

- who do we get it from?
- what visa do we need for a 2-4 week stay?
- when can we get it? Would prefer to get at airport, on arrival, can we do this?
- where can we get it from?
- what items do you need ie) passport photos etc

Thank you so much, any response will help us reach another of our travel goals ;)


P.S. We're currently in Thailand and need to do our visa run by 5 February.

Hello from Vietnam,

Hereunder is information about Visa to Vietnam.

Others who want to enter Vietnam must be provided with a visa.

- Visa is issued at the Vietnamese diplomatic offices or consulates in foreign countries.
- Visa-on-arrival is possibly issued at the border gates to those who have written invitations by a Vietnamese competent agencies or tourists in the tours organized by Vietnamese international travel companies.

Application files for visa:
