Visa on arrival

Important: this visa is only valid if it is to reach the country by plane and only for airports in Hanoi and Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City).

First, it is necessary to obtain a letter of invitation from the Government of Vietnam. These letters are ordered by internet and its price is around $20 dollars.

Once we have the letter in our possession, we must carry it with us to the destination airport (Hanoi or Saigon only).

At the airport and before collecting our bags, we will head to the window where visas expended. Will fill a form with our data, we will deliver the letter of invitation, Passport size Photo card and $45 dollars. 5 Minutes later, we will have our visa.

As advice, I recommend to carry a pen and above all, have enough money to pay the visa fees.

In the area of the airport immigration vietnam no ATMs, and convince a Vietnamese immigration police to escort you to the nearest ATM no easy task.
