Vietnam visa on arrival – Validity ?

Although thousand of foreigners use visa on arrival every day, how
many percentage understands clearly its steps and validity? Maybe not
much. The answer for the first part of the question can be found easily
on the internet, take this link as an example
This visa very informative article I like, but not for the second part.
Therefore, basing on my experience on this service, I would like to
clarify the validity of visa on arrival.


With the visa on arrival service, the visa will be issued upon
arrival at Viet Nam international borders. With each type of borders
(airports, land or sea), different type of visa letter is effective and
not all of websites on the internet can process all types. Most of them
are dealing with the visa on arrival for traveling by air. Therefore,
before applying, please read carefully the instruction on website to
make sure you choose the right visa on arrival website.

In some websites, it is said the visa on arrival is not legitimate –
It is INCORRECT. I was suspect this issue and asked my service provider
and be surely confirmed that the visa letter is issued by Viet Nam
Immigration Department and be defined in Vietnamese Immigration Laws
(Ordinance on entry, exit, residence of foreigner in Viet Nam dated
28/04/2000; Decree No. 21/2001/ND-CP dated 28/05/2001; Circular No.
04/2002/TTLT-BCA-BNG dated 29/01/2002 to implement related Ordinance and
Decree). Additionally, during last nearly 7 years I have used this
service, there has been NOT any problem arising related visa or Viet Nam

Visa on arrival is issued for 3 purposes normally: tourist (1 month),
business (1 or 3 month) and family visit (1 or 3 months). You are not
required to show evidence for the purpose choosing when apply,
therefore, do not worry if you visit Viet Nam for the trip but receiving
the 3 months visa stated your visa is for business. You can get the
visa and enter Viet Nam smoothly.

Just 1 more recommendation: check if the visa on arrival is available
for you. Basing on my knowledge, some countries’ citizens might not
able to apply this visa. For example: Chinese living in China…

Finally, here is my visa advisor during the last 7 years
Their staff is very friendly, swift-response and professional. Hope my
suggestion helps when you need information regarding visa.
