Normally, most travellers to Vietnam need a visa. You should contact a travel agent to be instructed about this, or you can go directly to a Vietnamese embassy or consulate in your country if it is convenient for you to come. It takes time for Embassies/consulates time to process your requests. When you obtain your visa, remember to check the entry and exit dates carefully. Mistakes must be corrected before your arrive in Vietnam; otherwise you may not be allowed to enter the country.

Vietnam visas can also be arranged for collection on arrival – but this process must be started before your trip to Vietnam.You will not be able to get on your plane if you don't have a correct letter of authorization to get a visa on arrival. To get a visa for Vietnam on arrival, an authorization letter must be obtained first. This can be organised through online agencies such evisa.vn or vietnamimmigration.com and must be carried with your original passport at time of check-in.

These companies will accept travel details and payment online with a general processing time of around 1-2 business days or 3 days at the latest.

It's is critical to the visa process to ensure that the details are correct – especially the date of arrival and date of exit. There is no problem if the entry date is several days before the intended arrival, or several days after the intended date of departure. Last but not least, your passport must have at least 6 months validity.
