  • Step 3: 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 ($25 for single entry visa; $50 for 1 month 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.

    Real Love, Real Experience

    Majestic and adventurous

    Mekong Delta tour was amazing, never seen a place like it before. It was so peaceful and the boat rides were fun. Through Asianway travel, i traveled from Hanoi to Ho Chi Mihn city including Sapa and Halong Bay. All of it was made super easy and adjustable when needed by Tina. As a solo traveler I never felt anxious about anything as I was really taken care of. Vietnam has been my favorite solo travel so far.
