Where/when/how should I get my visa for Vietnam?

Jump to last reply

I know there have been some changes to the visa costs to go to Vietnam. I'd appreciate some help navigating the requirements to get my visa if anyone could help.

I believe I should obtain the visa from one of the Vietnam embassies in the US before departure. I have read that they have different prices to get your visa - just depends on which one you use.

I also think you cannot get a visa on arrival even if you have a letter of approval and are ready to pay for a stamp when you arrive, although I have read about that being an option in the past - is this true?

Assuming the above is true, can I use any VN embassy to get the visa?
Can I mail the passports in or do I have to go in person?
If mail is OK, is there an application to fill out and if so, where do I find it?
Does anyone recommend any specific embassy as the cheapest (knowing that the price just changed and there may not be an answer to this question)
How long should I allow to get the visa processed?
Is there anything else I should be thinking about in terms of obtaining a visa?

Our passports have a few years until they expire so all good there.
Thanks for any advice!
