Do it yourself
In countries with a Vietnamese Embassy, prospective travellers to Vietnam can visit the Embassy to collect an application form. Once the form has been completed and returned, the travel visa will be ready for collection about three working days later assuming there are no complications. In some countries, it is possible to have a visa sent by post, but the applicant will have to send his or her passport to the Embassy for validation. The cost will be about $25 US or $30 US per visa, and the Embassy will levy a service charge on top. To find out how much the Embassy charges, and whether the Embassy will issue a visa by post, intending visitors should ring the Embassy and ask for the Visa Section.
Visa on arrival
Customers without a Vietnamese Embassy in their country, those booking latecan ask us to process a 'visa on arrival'. This involves supplying us with a few details in advance and collecting your visa when you enter Vietnam. We ask customers to supply us with the basic information needed to apply to the Immigration Office in Ha Noi for a 'visa on arrival'. When the official approval document is issued, we send it to the customer as a fax, or scan it and send it by e-mail. We do this just in case a customer's travel status is queried at the departure airport (a very rare occurrence - although airlines hardly ever ask to see an outbound passenger's visa, we prefer to make sure that no An viet customer would be inconvenienced if a check-in clerk were to ask him or her about the missing passport stamp). The process from our receipt of a customer's information and his or her receipt of the visa approval takes a maximum of three working days. Please note that the Immigration Office is closed at weekends, so no approvals can be issued on those days. When a customer arrives at Ha Noi airport, a member of our staff will be waiting at the Immigration desk to assist with completing the necessary paperwork. This usually takes about half an hour. Please note that each client must supply a passport photograph in color. For this service, we charge $20 US per person for the application procedure and assistance at the airport, which can be added to the cost of the tour or holiday if you wish. The customer has to pay a further $25 US for each visa directly to the Customs Department at the airport.
