Vietnam Visa

General Information about Vietnam Visa: Only citizens of certain countries can visit Vietnam without an entry visa (valid for visit within 30 days). Those countries include: most Asean countries, Korea, Japan & Scandinavians (2005). All other citizens are required to get an entry visa before departure or a pre-approved entry visa (visa is issued on arrival at Vietnam’s International Airports: Hanoi airport (Noi Bai Airport), Danang Airport, Nha Trang Airport (Cam Ranh Airport), Ho Chi Minh Airport (Tan San Nhat Airport) supplied before arrival in Vietnam.

We recommend that you obtain your entry visa by having a valid passport stamped prior to your departure by applying to any one of the Vietnamese Embassies or Vietnamese consulates worldwide.

However, if your particular city does not have a Vietnamese embassy, and you wish to avoid procedural delays (anywhere from 4 to 10 days) which sometimes happen with visa approvals at embassies outside Vietnam, www.handetour.comcan help you to obtain the Vietnam Visa Approval Code then you will get the official Vietnamese stamp of approval on your passport at any of our Embassies. 
Following such an approval, we will send you notification (by fax or email) and fax the approval to your desired Embassy or Consulate. You will need to take that approval with your passport to that Embassy or Consulate to get the visa stamp on your passport, which is done on the same day. You are now ready to go Vietnam!

In the event that there is no Vietnam embassy or Consulate in your country, or you just want to make Vietnam part of a multi-destination trip, then we recommend Vietnam Visa On Arrival as your best option.
What is a ‘Visa on Arrival ?‘: this is most likely the easiest way to obtain your visa without having to chase down Embassies, Consulates and the like prior to your trip, and is a valid alternative when applying for a tourist visa. The entry visa will be stamped on your passport as you pass through our immigration Checkpoint. Though valid for 30 days, it can be extended once you enter Viet Nam. With this type of visa, you only can enter the country by air at International Airports: Hanoi airport (Noi Bai Airport), Danang Airport, Nha Trang Airport (Cam Ranh Airport), Ho Chi Minh Airport (Tan San Nhat Airport)
How to get a Visa on Arrival:
 You only need to send us your full information then we obtain what is called an “Approval Letter” for you from the Viet Nam Immigration Department within 02 working days. After we obtain the approval, we will forward a copy by fax or email to you. Copies of the same document will be forwarded on your behalf to Vietnam Immigration Checkpoints at International Airports only, so that when you arrive in Viet Nam, the Immigration officers will have those documents on hand and will be able to issue your entry visa expediently.
