Vietnam Visa for residents of Malaysia

Like in other Southeast Asian nations, residents of Malaysia are also favored by Vietnamese Government not to be required a Vietnam entry visa for a stay within 30 days. In case you would stay more than 30 days, you may either apply for a visa to Vietnam by reaching Vietnamese embassy in Malaysia, or apply for an effective Vietnam visa on arrival through a visa service;
