19. What is Vietnam visa on arrival?


Vietnam Visa on arrival is the visa applied for those who travel by air to Vietnam only, and will get their visa stamped onto their passport at the immigration check-in when arriving at the Vietnam International Airport. By submitting the approval letter together with your passport (6 months validity), two 6-month valid photos, and stamping fee, the visa will be stamped onto your passport. And then, you will be ready to pass over the check-in door and enter Vietnam. Normally, this kind is almost selected when:
1)You will travel by air to Vietnam, or
2)There’s no Vietnam Embassy/Consulate in your country, or
3)You will stay more than a month in Vietnam, or
4)You will stay there for a time, then visit other countries around (like Laos, Cambodia, or China), and re-enter Vietnam later on, or simply
5)You would like to avoid all the embassy/consulate chasing-down, hassle, and to save your time.
