Visa On Arrival/Pre Arranged Via

Does anyone know if prearranged visas are allowed in Vietnam? I am planning on arriving in HCMC in late September and I was just going to do the prearranged Visa through this site:


Second and a lot more an absolute must have the tall, slim shape concentrates the aromas and so that for those times when your family lift going to be the flute to learn more about drink all your family can also take on and appreciate the full concentration regarding the aromas.


I sm from Australia and will be arriving in Vietnam on the 16th of October. Got my visa directly from the Vietnam Embassy in Canberra. Had to post my Passport as I live in Perth. The cost was $75 for a single entry one month visa...hope this helps


If you're American (or most non-ASEAN or certain Asian countries) then you basically need to arrange a visa before you arrive. If you don't do it at the local Vietnamese consulate or embassy then you can arrange a visa-on-arrival with most travel agencies in Vietnam. They just need to write up a letter inviting you to the country, then leave that at the two major airports (Saigon and Hanoi) where you'll have your invitation letter waiting. Sometimes visa-on-arrival is smooth, other times it's a headache and takes longer than you expect it to take. I explain a bad impression of visa-on-arrival here:

I can't vouch for MyVietnamVisa and you don't necessarily need a 3-month visa. Having an actual visa sticker in your passport is the least-hassle way to enter Vietnam.


As long as you have access to a printer, ( and a credit card ) you can do it online, , will as little as 24 hrs , ( depending on your time zone ).


Thanks for the information. Do you recommend any company I could go through?
