For those who travel to Vietnam by cruise, we are sorry to inform that you are not eligible for Vietnam visa on arrival . Basically, visa on arrival is stamped and granted directly at the arrival airport. Therefore, you can not get a visa on arrival unless you enter Vietnam by air. Nevertheless, there is still a good way to obtain visa to Vietnam for cruise ship travellers. Just going to the nearest Vietnam Embassy/Consulate in your place and they are willing to arrange you a Vietnam visa in a few days.

Generally, procedure to get a Vietnam visa by cruise ship at the embassy of Vietnam consists of 3 steps:

1. Submit directly required documents: a valid and origin passport; an application form attached with a passport photo; Vietnam visa fee.
2. Collect the visa after 3-5 working days
3. Check the visa carefully and notify the embassy if you catch any mistakes.
