Hi Ivan,

We can confirm that there are 2 common ways to apply for a Vietnam tourist visa:

1. Applying for Vietnam Visa at Vietnam Embassies/Consulates (effective for all citizens and all borders in Vietnam): If you are going to enter Vietnam via cruise ship or by crossing a land border, you do need to go to the Embassy/Consulate of Vietnam aboard to apply the visa in person. Kindly contact them for detailed procedure and fees. You can visit here for more information regarding their contact.

2. Applying for Vietnam Visa on Arrival with (applicable for air travellers only): If you are taking a flight to Vietnam, visa on arrival is a very convenient option. It takes only 1- 2 working days to process your visa application and once your visa application is approved by Vietnam Immigration Department, you will receive the visa approval letter that allows you to fly to Vietnam and obtain the official visa stamp upon arrival at any of Vietnam's international airports.

We hope that the information is helpful for you and should you have any further concerns, feel free to contact us.
