Please allow at least 2 weeks processing time for this visa.

Option 2:        Apply for a Visa Invitation Letter that is emailed to you, which you then print and bring with you to Vietnam. This letter allows you to fly into Vietnam and pick up your Visa on Arrival (VOA) at the airport. This VOA is for one month and is at a cost of $25USD for a single entry and $50USD for a multiple entry and needs to be paid in USD cash on arrival in Vietnam.
