Getting A Vietnam Visa Is Now Easier

US citizens who have a valid US passport are in fact in possession of a very important document. As the US passport facilitates many travellers to travel to many countries without actually having to bother with the visa.

However, Vietnam is not like that, the country has mandatory requirements of a valid visa for the country. Whether you are travelling to the country for business or pleasure is not relevant.

For the Vietnam visa US citizens have a few options that they can explore.

The first option is getting a valid visa before they board the plane. This process has typical features like:

  • It requires all the relevant documents for visa approval
  • The process takes anything around 3-5 days to get completed.
  • The fee charged is higher and non-refundable.
  • The assistance is available only during fixed hours.

Another option that seems better than the above is getting a visa on arrival. This option has slightly better features that include:

  • No documents other than a valid passport are required.
  • The procedure is completed in just about a day or two.
  • The fees charges are bare minimum and can be refunded in case if the visa application is rejected.
  • They have assistance provided round the clock for travellers arriving anytime during the day.

However, one must bear in mind certain criteria that in case if you are planning a trip using the ‘visa on arrival option’ you still require an approval before you board the plane for your holiday. Else many travellers have ruined trips assuming that no procedure is required before setting foot in Vietnam.

Though the process is simple it needs to be carried forward. All you need to do is get assistance for visa on arrival. You then fill out a form and then pay your fees for the visa service. Having done that, you will get an approval. You carry your approval letter with you, which will allow you to board the plane to Vietnam.
