Visa for Vietnam - anyone got experience?

Postby Kurt » Wed, 30 Nov 2005 2:40 pm

Hi

Am planning to go to VN pretty soon - any idea how long it takes to apply for a visa? Can I just go to the embassy and pick one up?
(am going as a tourist).

cheers

Kurt,
There are two tiers of visa applications , express and normal.

Express is 2 to 3 days, normal is up to a week. It's all pretty vague and depends on how busy they are. You will need 2 passport photos as well, and you have to leave your passport with the embassy while the visa application takes place. There is no visa on arrival in Vietnam.

I did mine through a travel agent, who collects and returns your passport at little extra cost. I don't know the exact price as it was bundled up with the flight cost.

Enjoy
