Vietnam visa on arrival

Information on how to apply for Vietnam visa-on-arrival including top 5 common mistakes to avoid with the Vietnamese online visa application.

Visa on arrival or pre-arranged visa has been online for almost 7 years, and it increasingly becomes the most convenient way to get a visa to Vietnam as everything has been made simple from the procedure to payment methods. You now can get your visa to Vietnam in couple of minutes with your internet accessed computers or wifi built-in mobile phones.

Is the “visa on arrival” legitimate?

Yes, it is.

Visa on arrival is officially issued by the Vietnam Immigration Department (Vietnamese Government), and therefore it has the same validity as the visa you get from any Vietnamese embassy abroad. "Visa on arrival" is stated in the Immigration Laws of Vietnam Article 24, 1999, clause #6, Chapter II.

Other governments also recognize visa on arrival as a legitimate travel document, such as the U.S. Department of State & the British Embassy in Hanoi:

"In order to enter Vietnam, you will need a valid passport with at least six months validity remaining and a Vietnamese visa, a visa exemption document, or a written approval letter for a visa upon arrival. To obtain a written approval letter to enter, you must contact a travel agency prior to departure."

Why should I apply online instead of going to the embassy?

Each visa application option offers you some advantage. Visa-on-arrival is especially beneficial for those who live far away from the Vietnamese embassies and do not wish to send their passports away by mail. The other advantages of VOA include faster processing, cost-saving (19.99 USD) and more efficient payment methods.
