I am Australian and am currently travelling within Singapore and I am looking into visiting Vietnam. I am aware that I require a Visa before entering the county. I was wondering what my options were to apply for this visa. There is a Vietnam Embassy here in Singapore, am I eligible to apply in person or must I apply online or at the Embassy in Bangkok? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, Melissa Thouas
My partner and I will be travelling to Vietnam from New Zealand, arriving in Ho Chi Minh City on the 18th of November 2016. We will then be travelling around Vietnam for a month or so before travelling by bus to Laos and then by plane to Cambodia. Following our travels in Cambodia we will be crossing the border back into Vietnam to travel to HCMC again as we fly back to New Zealand out of HCMC on the 20th of January 2017.
I am aware that we need to apply for a visa for our entry into Vietnam in November, but was wondering if we need to also have a valid visa when we cross the border by bus on our way back to HCMC from Cambodia. If so, which visa type do we select? We will need a visa that is applicable for 2 months but that also allows multiple entries and I cannot see which one that would be as the only multiple entry visa is the 1 month visa. Will we need to apply for 2 separate 1 month multiple entry visas or do we not need a valid visa for our re-entry in January 2017 because it will be via bus and not plane?
I look forward to your reply.
We would like to get pre-approved/stamped Visa before travelling to Vietnam. (Not Visa On Arrival, to avoid waiting time at airport). Can you send (or where can we download) the application form for that.

Hello, (sorry for my poor English) I am a Czech citizen (tourist). As I am not completely sure yet if I will be able to leave for Vietnam – this kind of visa seems suitable for me as I will be able to apply just before planed departure. My questions are flowing:
1. I understand that the total cost of my 3 months visa with multiple entry is $95 (stamping fee) + 45 (service fee) = $140 (altogether). Am I right? ….any other fees?
2. When and which way am I to pay the service fee? (Stamping fee I pay on arrival – I suppose…?)
3. According to my flying ticket I am to get to Vietnam on Jan. 21th and leave for home on Feb. 25th. Do I really need 3 months visa? Isn’t there some small toleration (4 days)? I mean – wouldn’t be 1 month visa enough?
4. If I am leaving Prague for Vietnam on Jan 20th, what is the latest moment to apply for visa on arrival? (I prefer to be sure I will be successful…)
5. I apologize to ask… Is this way to get visa completely safe? Will I obtain your approval letter in time? Will it be for sure accepted when boarding the plane and when arriving in HCMC (Tan Son Nhat) by immigration office?
Thank you in advance for your kind and prompt answers.

So today when I went to check in at Tan Son Nhat INT Airport, the lady asked me for my Vietnam visa. I told her from my understanding that the visa was just to enter Vietnam and if I am leaving to US I don’t need it anymore. She told me that I need the visa to exit Vietnam. I told her that my final stop was US and that I have a US Passport so why do I need the visa? I think she was just trying to give me a hard time for money. Can someone tell me if I need a visa to leave Vietnam to go to US.
