Travel Visa

Most countries in South East Asia require you to obtain a visa. Please check carefully with your travel specialist regarding specific visa requirements for each country you plan to visit as the legislation does change frequently. Thailand offers a free visa on arrival to most nationalities. Other countries including Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar offer a “visa-on-arrival” service which requires you to pay a fee at the airport, or you may prefer to obtain this in advance through the relevant embassy or a visa agent. For visa-on-arrival in Vietnam, you must submit some paperwork before you arrive.

This is an option to get your visa for Vietnam instead of getting visa at the Vietnam consulate in your country.  

Step 1: Provide us your application detailsvisa-on-arrival.jpg

  • Your full name (as exactly seen on your passport)
  • Your gender
  • Your date of birth
  • Your nationality
  • Your passport number
  • Your passport expiration dates ( valid for at least 6 months)
  • Date of arrival ( dd/mm/yy)
  • Date of exit (dd/mm/yy)
  • Arrival airport

    Step 2: Process your visa information into a visa application 
    We will contact you for reviewing your visa information and then submit your application on your behalf to Vietnam Immigration department and follow other procedures pursuant to the regulations of Immigration department to get Visa approval letter granted by Immigration department.

    Step 3: Send the visa approval letter via email to you after 2 working days 
    After we obtain the visa approval letter from the Immigration department for you, we will forward you a scanned copy of it by email (Your visa information then have been recorded to the Visa system of the Vietnam Immigration department).

    Step 4: Get your visa stamp on your arrival 
    Just print the approval letter out, prepare 2 passport sized photos and an amount of USD for stamping fee ($45 for single entry visa; $65 for 1 month multiple entry visa and $95 for 3 multiple entry visa). Put all above mentioned things along with your passport in a package, then show them to Immigration officer at Vietnam arrival airports.     

    Upon arrival at Vietnam’s airport, expect a simple form to fill in (or you can download here to fill beforehand), present the visa approval letter, passport, photos to the Immigration officer inside the counter and look for a place to hear your name be called to get the passport back and pay for the stamping fee. The actual process takes around 15 minutes without hassle or trouble.

    What are the differences between this process and getting visa at Vietnam embassies?     
    It is only applicable for those who travel to Vietnam by air. You only need fill out the visa application form online instead of visiting the Vietnam embassies or sending documents to Embassies over by post.The online visa application does not require sending your passport away.You get a visa approval letter issued by Vietnam Immigration Department indicating that you are allowed to enter Vietnam and have your visa stamped upon arrival at one of Vietnam international airports.

    We have just returned from our first ever organised holiday to Vietnam and I have to say it was wonderful. The organisation was second to none, obviously lots going on in the background to make sure, our holiday ran smoothly. Very good value for money.I booked all our accommodation, cruise, sightseeing, meals , transfer as well as flight with this company and they done a great job organising everything. A big thank you to Ms Candy who was extremely helpful with any request I had. Would definitely use them again.
