How to Apply for Vietnam Visa on Arrival?

Visiting Vietnam is an excellent option for people looking for a new experience. From sunny beaches to delicious cuisine and vibrant cultural attractions, Vietnam is a rewarding destination.

Before traveling, it is important to know the Vietnam visa requirements. These steps will help you navigate the process.

Do I Need a Visa for Vietnam?

Most visitors will need a visa to enter Vietnam. People in many African countries and parts of Asia are exempt from Vietnam visa requirements. Citizens of North American and European countries will need to obtain a visa.

Why? Visas are required by most countries for citizens of other countries to enter. Some governments require visitors to obtain a visa prior to arriving, while others issue visas to people upon arrival. Vietnam visa requirements are actually a combination of these two approaches. Visitors must apply in advance for a visa approval letter, and then obtain the official visa stamp in their passports upon arrival in the country. Fortunately, the application for a visa approval letter can be completed and submitted online.
