There are 2 ways to obtain a visa:
 If you arrive to Vietnam by land, it is NOT possible to get a visa on arrival. You must obtain the visa beforehand, as outlined in Case 1. (The one exception is the Moc Bai land crossing, at the Cambodian border –see Case 2)

Case1: Collect your visa before arrival from your closest Vietnamese embassy or consulate. To apply for a visa, the requirements are as follows:

• Entry permit form (which can vary from one Vietnamese embassies or consulate abroad to another) - There are two categories of this form: for foreigners and for Vietnamese overseas.
• Two photos (4cmx6cm or 3cmx4cm)
• Original passport
• Visa fee.

You should send your application and photos to a Vietnamese embassy or consulate abroad, which is most convenient to you. On your requirement, the reply will be returned by post (you must provide stamped envelopes with your name and address).

Case2: Collect your visa on arrival at Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City or Danang International Airports.

• In both cases, Exoland Travel  can help you obtain your visa prior to arrival or upon arrival. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU OBTAIN YOUR VISA BEFORE ARRIVAL TO AVOID LONG DELAYS AND POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS AT THE AIRPORT.

     Exoland Travel Service can process your visa application and obtain the necessary visa approval from the Vietnamese Immigration Department. For this, we need the following details from all applicants:
• Full name as it appears in your passport
• Gender
• Date of birth DD/MM/YY
• Nationality
• Job
• Passport number
• Issue date and expiry date of your passport
• Place of issue (e.g. Paris, France)
• Entry and exit dates
In Case 1 only: Location for you collection of visa, e.g. Vietnam embassy in Paris
In case 2 only: Arrival date in Vietnam and flight number (e.g. 24th of March 2006 by
Vietnam Airlines flight VN532) and Port of entry (e.g. Ho Chi Minh City, Tan Son Nhat
  The process usually takes about 5 working days after we receive the above information.
After this, we will send you the official document approved by the Vietnamese
Immigration department.
The official document in Case 1 is an “approval letter”.
The official document in Case 2 is a “visa picking up upon arrival approval letter”.

Case 1: Visa before arrival
Bring the “approval letter”, your passport and two recent passport-sized photos to the Vietnamese Embassy or Consulate. The person collecting the visa must also complete two application forms at the embassy or consulate. A visa stamping fee is charged by the Vietnamese embassy or consulate. Fees vary from one country to another.

Case 2: Visa upon arrival
Please remember to take your passport, 2 recent passport-sized photos and the “visa picking up upon arrival approval letter” with you to check in for your flight to Vietnam.

NOTE: if you do not have this letter at the time of check-in, the airline staff will not allow you to board the aircraft. Before departure, prepare some bank notes in USD to clear visa stamping fees on arrival. On arrival at Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi or Danang
International Airports, head to the Landing Visa Counter. Present your “visa picking up
upon arrival approval letter”, passport and 2 pictures to the officer who will charge you a Visa stamping fee. Then, head for the Immigration desks.

• Always allow plenty of time for your visa arrangements to ensure a good start to
your trip.
• Exoland Travel charges a service fee to obtain your “approval letter”
from the Vietnamese Immigration Department if you do not travel with us.
4. What are the immigration procedures on entering Vietnam?
On entering Vietnam, all visitors must complete an entry/exit form including a customs
declaration (white/yellow colour). It is important that the bottom copy (yellow sheet) of
this form is kept safe with your passport while in Vietnam and is presented to the
customs and immigration officials on departure.
