Apply Vietnam visa on arrival online

Visa on arrival is an alternative option to apply for a visa to Vietnam. This kind of visa is picked up at arrival airport  and is applicable to travelers coming to Vietnam by air.

Visa on arrival is a special advantage for those who live far from the Vietnam Embassy/Consulate in their countries. The applicants neither have to go to the Embassy nor have to send out the passport.
