How to apply for Vietnam visa from United Kingdom?

A valid visa is required for all citizens of United Kingdom to visit Vietnam for any purposes from visiting friends and families to going on a business trip or leisure vacation. Fortunately, it is much easier these days for UK passport holders to apply for visa to Vietnam as there are two available ways to go about this matter.

  • Applying for visa at Vietnam Embassy (traditional way, visa picked up at Vietnam Embassies) or,
  • Apply for Visa on arrival with Vietnam-Visa.com (visa picked up at Vietnam International Airports).

In order to get visa to Vietnam, you may choose one of the two options above.

Travelers should keep in mind that these two options are quite different in terms of application procedure and applicable applicants. While visa on arrival is more convenient and less time-consuming, it is applicable for those who travel to Vietnam by air only.

Therefore, if you plan to travel to Vietnam by land or sea or wish to obtain a fully stamped visa on passports before departure, you should contact the nearest Vietnam embassy for visa application. It may take you 2-5 working days to get Vietnam Visa at Vietnam Embassy in United Kingdom. And, your passport has to be sent to Vietnam Embassy directly or by post.

Quick and efficient and very patient! I don’t know how to thank that lady Linda. My Vietnam visa application was declined online as my passport will expire in less than 6 mths. She helped me with the whole process and she was very patient and efficient.
