Vietnam visa on arrival


Landing visa (or Visa on arrival) is most likely the easiest legally way to obtain your visa to Vietnam. Instead of applying visa through Vietnam Embassy, all you need to do now is just to send us details of your passport and flight.

Within 02 days to process, or in urgent case, 4 working hours after receiving your request and payment, we will send you ”Visa Approval letter” if the application is approved by Vietnam Immigration Department via email for picking up visa upon arrival at any international airport in Vietnam (Tan Son Nhat, Noi Bai or Da Nang).

Is the “visa on arrival” legitimate?

Yes, it is.. It is issued by Vietnam Immigration department and recognized as a legal document by the Vietnamese government. The IATA (International Air Traffic Association) has recognised visa on arrival.

“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 Statethe 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 visa on arrival is preferred ?

Obviously you can apply by yourself for getting the approval letter or getting Vietnam visa at Vietnam Embassy. However, in case there is no Vietnam Embassy or Consulate in your country, or you just want to make Vietnam part of a multi-destination trip, we recommend Vietnam visa upon arrival as your best option since it saves a lot of time and money.
