Hi. We are having a flight to Vietnam today. Can I get Vietnam visa today. Please advise as soon as possible. We are Australians living in UK.
Vietnam Embassy isn’t the only place to obtain Vietnam Visa. There are 3 ways to obtain a Vietnam Visa. They are Visa Embassy, Vietnam visa on arrival, and Vietnam e-visa. Let’s find out the information of each way.
The current policy on 15-day Vietnam visa exemption for UK will be soon expired on June 30, 2017. Is it further extended?
I have submitted the Vietnam visa online application form to you. In the form, I provided Noi Bai Airport. But we might go via another airport – maybe Da Nang. Is there any problem? Please advice.
First of all, we would like to say thank you for contacting us.
Regarding your question, please be kindly informed that the visa approval letter (issued to get Vietnam visa on arrival) works at all 5 international airports of Vietnam (Noi Bai in Hanoi, Cat Bai in Hai Phong, Da nang in Da nang City, Cam Ranh in Khanh Hoa and Tan Son Nhat in Ho Chi Minh City). There will be no problem if you switch your arrival airports among these five.
We hope this information is clear to you and you now have no worry about your issue.
Should you need any further information, please feel free to contact us.
Hi, I’m in Bangkok before visiting Vietnam via land border crossing. As here in UK, I’m far from the embassy? Can I apply for Vietnam visa via the embassy in Bangkok? Please advize.
I’m planning to travel to Cambodia and then on to Vietnam in February, for about a month, about two weeks in each country.
I might be flying to Bangkok and then travel onwards to meet up with a friend in Cambodia then go together onwards to Vietnam via land border crossing.
I’m Swedish and don’t need any Visa to Thailand. But the problem is that I live in the UK. I don’t need a Visa if I stay in Vietnam for less than 15 days AND have a flight ticket to leave the country to prove it. Would that be my best bet? I can’t go to Sweden and hand my passport in to the Vietnam embassy. Can I apply for a Vietnam visa in the UK embassy?
You are right that as a holder of Swedish passport, you are exempted from Vietnam visa if:
- Your passport is valid for at least 6 months since your date of entry; and
- Your entry date does not fall within 30 days from exit date of your previous visit to Vietnam with visa exemption.
Otherwise you will need a visa. And in this case, as you travel to Vietnam by land border crossing, you will need to apply for Vietnam visa via embassy. It can be any embassy of Vietnam which is convenient for you, in Sweden, in London, in Thailand or in Cambodia. It’s ok.
Should you need any further information, please feel free to let us know.
Hi, Do I need a Vietnam visa? I am traveling to Vietnam by air on March 13, 2017 and stay there for 10 days. And then I will leave Vietnam for Laos for another 10 days from March 23 to April 2, 2017. After that, I will come back Vietnam via land border crossing for my flight to UK from Noi Bai airport Hanoi. Both of my stays in Vietnam is less than 15 days. Can I avoid visa to Vietnam? Please advise.
Hi, I’m Uk. I wish to be in Vietnam in February 2017. Can I still apply for Vietnam visa on arrival? Please advise.
i got confused with this term “Foreigners cannot apply for visa on arrival themselves, the application must go through authorized travel agencies in Vietnam or organizations”. It means that we can’t apply by ourselves?
