Q: Hi, my husband and I are planning to visit Vietnam for about one month from end August to end September. We will arrive from Thailand (Bangkok airport) where we will be for 2 months prior to our Vietnam trip. We have been to Thailand a few times before but would now both love to visit Vietnam. We live in Cape Town, South-Africa and will be travelling originally from here. Are we able to apply for a visa now already valid for August/ September? Single entry and valid 1 month. Thank you. (Inge Borgart)

A: Yes. You can apply now, as the visa becomes valid from your granted arrival date, not from the date of application or the date of issue.
