Vietnam Visa-on-Arrival

Visa-on-Arrival stamp cost: $25 US dollars.

  1. After receiving your scanned passport information, Hanoi Voyages will process and obtain an entry permit- Invitation Letter. This is an official document of the Vietnamese government that allows you to enter the Vietnamese territory and obtain the visa stamp at the airport on arrival.
  2. After four working days of assessment, Hanoi Voyages will send the Invitation letter directly to you by email.
  3. Make sure to print the Invitation Letter and submit it to the airline. 
  4. When you land, give the Invitation Letter and the two passport-size photos (4x6cm) to the Customs Official. If everything is in order, you will leave the Customs with a visa stamp on your passport.
  5. Note that Visa-on-Arrival is applicable only if you arrive in Vietnam by air and not by road.
