3. Visa on Arrival


The trip is over 30 days with a multiple-entry visit to Vietnam, you will want to apply for a visa on arrival. To do this you'll need a Visa Approval Letter. You can book it through a licensed Vietnamese Travel Company.

To apply for the Visa Approval Letter, you need to send to them:

  • Arrival and departure dates
  • Full passport details (your passport’s photo)


Note: Your passport must be valid for 6 months beyond your travel date, and there must be several blank pages left on your passport.


It takes about 2-4 days working days for a Visa Approval Letter. After you get it, you need to print out and prepare two photos (6 cm high x 4 cm wide – white background, no glasses, no smiling). On arrival at the airport (in Hanoi, Da Nang, or Ho Chi Minh City), find the Visa on Arrival window/counter where you will hand over your passport and photos, and be given a simple form to fill out. Pay the stamping fee of USD$25 for a single entry and USD$50 for multiple entries. The staff at the airport will shortly return your passport with your visa, after which you will be allowed to exit the airport.
