• Does Vietnam visa on arrival work?


    Since I’ve ventured out into some of tourism forum providing tips or doing FAQ purposes. I’ve found out there’s a query that seemed to be quite puzzle and to some of you, may get yourself confused. “Does Vietnam visa on arrival (VOA) work?”

    Well, an absolutely genuine respond is promptly given for it did actually work, and out of a thin air, gratify both your need and your precious time, as long as you maintain your worth as a legal citizen and not being an Ebola bearer, then there you go. But joking aside, your visa on arrival will be properly applicable only if you take all of proper procedure in which you have to give your appointed agent your personal information such as your full name, date of birth, precise arrival date, passport number, and so on; then get your service required fee well paid. After about 4 or 5 workings days your approval letter will be sent to your personal email which mean till then you’re good to go (waiting time can be shorter if you pay some extra which’s quite cheap and really worth your money spent). When your flight succeed, and you have your foot set on 3 of those International Airports (Nội Bài, Tân Sơn Nhất, Đà Nẵng), don’t join with the queue at immigration counter but immediately consult nearest airport staff telling them you have visa on arrival, then they will give you another paperwork needed to be fulfilled and finally get your legitimate visa stamped. I’m not saying that you don’t have to be in a long waiting queue if you choose embarking your trip by VOA over the old-school one (which is more expensive and slower), but as I’ve already mentioned before, things will be much faster if you pay an extra.

    One more thing needed to be told, there are numerous agents providing such service, some will not accept your payment by credit card and it seems quite unreliable, I recommend you should go for those that do accept your credit card.

    At the end of the day, it would be a unwillingly pity if you don’t seriously delve into the topic concerning looking for a proper tourism agent, you might get yourself in unexpected troubles and incident that you don’t wish yourself to be into. I’ve been using quite many of different agents, they are like cheese and chalk so to speak, some are decent and always get your need done right, but there are also not really countable.
