Frequently Asked Questions

What if I change my arrival airport in Vietnam?

It does not matter at all.

As the Visa approval letter (to pick up visa on arrival) works at all 8 international airports of Vietnam (Noi Bai in Hanoi, Cat Bi in Hai Phong, Da Nang in Da Nang, Cam Ranh in Khanh Hoa, Tan Son Nhat in Ho Chi Minh City, Phu Quoc in Phu Quoc island, Lien Khuong in Da Lat and Can Tho in Can Tho city), you can switch your arrival airports among them and get the visa stamped without problems.

What if I have unknown travel dates while filling the application form for visa approval letter?

It does not matter at all. In case you are still not sure about your travel dates, you can provide planned ones when you fill in the online VOA Vietnam application form.

But please be kindly informed that you cannot enter Vietnam sooner than your provided arrival dates but later. So, please carefully consider before putting your dates into the form.

Is there any time frame to apply for a visa approval letter for Vietnam?

You can apply for the letter whenever you wish as it becomes valid from the arrival date granted, not from the date you apply for visa or the date you receive the letter.

The latest time to apply for visa approval letter for Vietnam should be 2 working days (for tourist visa) or 7 working days (for business visa) to avoid urgent processing cost.

Do I need to contact the Vietnam embassy in case I’ve got the visa approval letter?

No. When using Vietnam visa on arrival (or VOA Vietnam), you have nothing to work with the Vietnam embassy regarding your visa for Vietnam.

After getting the visa approval letter via email, you only need to print it out together with the attached Vietnamese visa application form (formerly known as Entry and Exit Form) and then get the visa stamped upon arrival at Vietnam airport by showing these forms, original passport, photos and paying for stamping fee there.

Do I need to provide any hard document to apply for a Vietnam visa approval letter?

No. You do not need to provide any document to apply online for the Vietnam visa approval letter, you only need to provide your information, including:

  • Your contact details (name, email and possibly phone number);

  • Applicant’s information (full name, passport number, gender, nationality, date of birth and passport expiry date).
