How to overcome the shortcomings of Vietnam landing visa (Visa on arrival)?

As you know, the Vietnam landing visa is one of the visas issued by the Vietnamese Immigration Bureau, which aims to help foreign tourists save more time and money. However, applicants sometimes feel a bit uneasy about some of the drawbacks of getting a visa only when they arrive in Vietnam. These problems can be easily solved through the following tips:

1 / what are the disadvantages of landing visas in Vietnam?

Landing visa is only applicable to aviation, so if you intend to enter Vietnam by land or cruise, you cannot apply for this visa.
Waiting at the airport can be long. Generally, you have to queue up for 15-30 minutes to get the visa stamp, but on holidays or arrival time, as with other flights, the queuing time may be longer.

Landing visa is usually handled collectively in the form of approval letters. There is a lot of information written on the letter, which you don’t know, but don’t worry too much. So you just need to find your name on the list and check whether your personal information is correct. Other people’s information doesn’t need to be cared about.

2 / How to avoid the inconvenience caused by the Vietnam landing visa?

Before applying for a visa, make sure that you will fly to Vietnam. If you plan to go to Vietnam by land or cruise, please apply for a visa at the Vietnamese embassy.

In some emergencies, additional services can be used.

If you don’t want to queue up or take your children or the elderly with you, you can use the fast track service (when applying for a visa, you will see a recommendation, the service charge is $20 per person). With this service, passengers do not have to queue up at the arrival airport for visa stamping procedures. Our staff will provide services until you get your visa.

If you don’t want to share information with a lot of strangers, you can use a private visa approval letter (you will also see a recommendation when you apply), and the fee is $6 / person/letter or $8 / team/letter.
