Q: Hello,

I and other family members are planning to travel to Vietnam on November 19 for tourism purpose. Thereafter we would like to travel to Cambodia by Bus and then fly to my home country India from Cambodia. I would like to know that being an Indian citizen can I get visa on arrival at Cambodia border if travelling by bus from Vietnam or do I need to pre-apply for Cambodia visa online or via embassy. Thank you in advance for your feedback. (Arjun)

We can only say that as you are traveling to Vietnam by air with tourism purpose, as Indian citizens, you can get visas on arrival for Vietnam for you and your family members as well.

And to get this kind of visa, you need to get a visa approval letter online beforehand and then finally get visa stamped upon arrival at Vietnam airport. You cannot get the visa at Vietnam airport without the letter. You can see full details about Vietnam visa on arrival here.
