This is an alternative way to get your visa for Vietnam. You just need to send us a copy of your passport, your arrival date and type of visa you want to get. We will process an approval letter of visa on arrival for you.

The processing time normally takes 2 working days to be done, but in any urgent cases, we can still make it even in an hour.
