How to apply for Vietnam visa from United Kingdom?
Good news is that the UK passport holders will currently be able to enjoy Vietnam visa exemption for stays of maximum 15 days in Vietnam for every type of passports and immigration reasons if they meet the conditions required by Vietnamese law, according to the official issued Resolution No 46/NQ-CP by Vietnamese Government. The policy will come into effect for 01 year from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016.
Actually, those who intend to travel to Vietnam are advised to make sure the days in Vietnam are less than 15 days. In case the trip is longer than expectation, visa extension is required for all UK passport holders. However, it is currently difficult to extend Vietnam visa and the cost for visa extension is so high. Therefore, every UK passport holder is highly advised to apply for a visa to Vietnam right from the beginning if he cannot assure for a stay in Vietnam of less than 15 days.
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).

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.
