Coming from America or most other Western European countries you are going to need a visa letter before arriving to Vietnam now there’s many different options to do this but most common is that people will go ahead and get a visa letter online from one of these e visa companies now I have been using these Ivysaur companies for over.
A year now and I have nothing but positive things to say at least about the one that I specifically choose in order to get your visa you.
Are going to need to apply through one of these companies it normally takes anywhere between two to three days.
Although they do have expedited services at an additional cost you’re going to need to get that visa letter print it out before arriving.
Here you’re going to need to have one passport size photo and you’re going to need to bring a pen with you and.
That’s basically to fill out.
The visa information include.
The picture and if you arrive.
Without a picture they can take a picture of you on the.
Spot and it’s usually kind of done under the table where someone at the visa counter will go ahead take a picture.
Of you and then you have to essentially bribe them to go ahead and print out that picture that they took attach it to your form and go right on through customs cost for one of these visa letters before arriving is anywhere between ten to twenty dollars plus the.
Visa stamp will be anywhere between ten to thirty dollars coming up on the length of time that you are looking to stay here and usually it’s a pretty smooth process okay here’s a little hack on how to get through immigration and get through the visa process faster go ahead.
