Getting Vietnam visa on Cambodia/Vietnam border?

Hi guys,

My family (my wife, I and three kids) are going on a trip to Cambodia and Vietnam in this summer, and we need visas for both countries (no consulate or embassy in Slovenia).

As I Googled, there is no problem to get a visa for Cambodia, as you can do it online, but there is a problem for Vietnam. It’s possible to get a Vietnamese visa on arrival, that is, if you arrive by plane. But our plan is to cross the Cambodia/Vietnam border on foot/bus/train, and we can’t find any info on how to get a visa on border.

Does anyone have any info, anything would help! Thanks a ton!



Dear Zarko,

As you found out, Vietnam visa on arrival is for those traveling to Vietnam by air only. As you are going to Vietnam via border crossing, you need to get a visa at a local Vietnam embassy. As you will have time in Cambodia, you are highly recommended to get Vietnam-visa at Vietnam Embassy in Cambodia.
