Question: When to apply so that my letter of approval covers my travel time period

I will be arriving Vietnam on May 21 and departing on May 28. While there I will make a side trip to Siem Reap, Cambodia so I know I will need a 1 month, multiple visit visa. If I apply now (March 24) can I request the approval letter have a start period of mid May or will it automatically start as soon as the approval is granted. In other words can I apply early or do I have to wait until later to make sure the approval letter time frame covers my intended travel time period? Greg.
