Let's start applying for Visa on Arrival now!
With this kind of visa, you – the visa applicant is required to submit an online application for a visa approval letter which functions as an official permission allowing you to board the flight and have visa stamped at the arrival airport in Vietnam.

But for visa applied at the Vietnam embassies, the visa stamp will be on your passport when they send it back to you.
