According to TUN Travel (partner with Vietnam Immigration Department), the Immigration Department of Vietnam will change the visa policy for anyone who visit Vietnam at varied kinds of visa. Along with current 01-year multiple entry visa, you can enter with other kinds like: 1-month single, 1-month multiple, 3-months single, 3-months multiple and 6-months multiple entry visa on arrival.

Now, the hard time is gone so visa/travel agencies have to add more knowledge and synthesize detailed information so that US tourist can easily follow. To get Vietnam Visa for traveling or business, you have two (02) options: Applying through Vietnam Embassy/Consulate in your country or applying for visa on arrival (VOA) through Vietnamese International Travel Company. So, what is difference and which is the best?

Applying for a Vietnam visa through Embassies/Consulates is traditional method, you contact with Embassy staff to get an appointment and drive to the nearest Embassy. When coming, you have to prepare all documents required by Embassy and leave your original passport for stamping. The processing time is quite important. Normally, visa in Embassy will be taken you from 5-7 working days, some cases will be more. Thus, the question to be asked here: Where is your nearest Embassy? How far is this from your location to the nearest?
The best and common way now for all tourists in the world is Visa on arrival (VOA), it means that you can get visa at arrival airports. In Vietnam, there are only famous and reliable international travel companies that help you to deal with this matter like: Hotels-in-Vietnam/visa service of TUN Travel... By that method, you only access to their website, read the very clear instruction and then apply an approval letter to finish your process. You can also consult the price and make a comparison among these websites so that create the final decision. When you finish your payment for order, you only have to wait for 1 – 2 working-days (1 working-hour for urgent service) to receive your visa approval letter issued by Immigration Department of Vietnam and it is automatically sent to your email address. In case you are too busy, the visa team can help you to print and send to you, you also call them via hotline for further information. When you arrive in Vietnam airport and submit your visa approval letter and pay stamping fee, you have your passport stamped. That’s very convenient and easy.
