Vietnam visa on arrival without approval letter

 Many people misunderstand that they could pick up Vietnam visa on arrival at the airport without applying for a visa approval letter in advance. Consequently, they have hassle with the airlines and are not allowed to get on board. In this article, we will offer you the right understanding about Vietnam visa on arrival and how to pick it up at arrival airport.

Vietnam visa on arrival is a type of visa granted directly at the port of entry. In order to get visa on arrival, the applicants have to apply for a visa approval letter through Vietnamese travel agency first. Visa approval letter is a document issued by Vietnam Immigration Department that assures your stay in Vietnam for a given length of time

- Fill out the online visa application form
- Pay service fee to get visa approval letter
- Receive visa approval letter via email after 2 working days

At the airport, the applicants are advised to go straight to Immigration Area and present the documents including: original passport, visa approval letter, entry and exit form, one passport-sized photo and stamping fee (USD 45 for single entry, USD 65 for 1 month multiple entry, and USD 95 for 3 month multiple entry). The visa stamping process will be completed within 15 minutes.


- Your passport should have at least 6 month validity from the time of entry to avoid hassle with the airlines.
- Complete the entry and exit form beforehand to save time at the airport.
- Prepare at least one recent passport-sized photo if you do not want to waste time and money in taking photos at the airport.
- Stamping assistance service is highly recommended for those who enter Vietnam for the first time or those who need a rush Vietnamvisa because the stamping process may take a long time if there are a lot of foreigners getting visa stamped.
