Detailed Instructions To Get A Visa To Vietnam At The Arrival Airports From Beginning To End By Greenvisa

In comparison with the traditional visa-getting method which is at the Vietnam Embassy, Vietnam visa on arrival (VOA Vietnam) comes to be more affordable and less complicated with the online application system. Green Travel Universal – a registered government agency which has ten years of experience in getting a VOA for foreign citizens, has presented the application guidelines for Vietnam approval letter – an important document that allows people to enter Vietnam with ease.

Step 1: Access and fill in the required information.
Step 2: Choose which type of visa they want and make a payment online.
Step 3: After receiving the Vietnam letter of approval via email (after two working days for normal service & 1 day/ 4 hours/ 1 hour for super urgent service) and print it out.
Finally, applicants have to show their Vietnam visa on arrival letter to check in their international flight and get Vietnam visa stamped on their passport.

According to Greenvisa, the required documents that travelers need to prepare are the same no matter which international airport they arrive at (In Ha Noi, Ho Chi Minh, Da Nang and Cam Ranh). These documents include the Vietnam approval letter, original passport (at least six months of validity and left pages), a couple of passport photos, Vietnam visa on arrival form N1 and some cash for the stamping fee.

To make it easier for travelers to get their Vietnam visa stamped at four Vietnam international airports; Greenvisa agency has given a detailed instruction about the location of the visa counter as well as the visa procedure at each of the Vietnam arrival airports.

At Tan Son Nhat international airport (Ho Chi Minh city): Once getting to the immigration hall, travelers need to find the Landing visa (VOA) window which is positioned at the far end on the left of the hall. They need to present all the prepared documents to the office, find a place to take a seat, and wait for their name to be called. It normally takes at least 15 minutes to process a visa, but in some situations when there are a lot of arrivals, travelers have to wait for about an hour. After that, applicants have to pay for 25 USD if they choose single entry visa; or 50 USD for multiple entry visa and receive the visa stamp on their passport along with their payment receipt. Green Travel Universal strongly advises people to make sure that there is nothing wrong with the information in their Vietnam visa because it can lead to the rejection of entry.

At Noi Bai international airport (Hanoi city): the procedure of getting their visa stamp at Noi Bai airport is quite similar to that at Tan Son Nhat airport. The VOA counter is located opposite the immigration posts. However, it is suggested that applicants should notice the signage of the counter as it can be hard to see due to the crowd.

At Da Nang international airport: People need to follow the exit signs to enter the huge hall. After that, they can easily find the VOA window which is on the left side.
