Can I use both Vietnam visa issued by the Embassy and visa on arrival for my multiple entry?

I applied for a visa through the Vietnam Embassy and received it.  I leave for Vietnam on Oct. 12th, 2014.  My problem is I received a single entry visa and have found out I will be needing to enter Vietnam one more time.  I am in Vietnam for 2 weeks then go to Cambodia for a visit.  I would like to get another single entry  arrival visa from you and then use when I return from Cambodia.  Is this a problem?  Can I have two single entry visas at the same time and use them separately or do I need to start over and get a new visa for multiple entry?  What happens with the old visa?  Thanks so much.

How many blank page of the passport is required for Vietnam visa?

Dear e-Vietnamvisa team,

I have an inquiry regarding the VOA process.
I would like to know if travelers require a full blank page in their passport to complete the VOA process once in Vietnam or is the VOA document and presentation of the passport all that is required for completion of the process?
I currently have space in my passport for stamps, however no full spare pages for a visa sticker.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

A long name has been cut in VOA approval letter


I checked the data on the letter of approval for my Vietnam visa on arrival and found that the name of my girlfriend is written:
“Angel Leane Fatimine Dunjasiat Jasmin H.”
Her five given names (Angel Leane Fatimine Dunjasiat Jasmin) are written completely. But her family name Herringeras is written “H”. Will it cause any trouble for her entry upon arrival? We should ensure that there won’t be a problem with the Vietnam immigration procedures at the airport.

Vietnam business visa stamp for my boss before arrival


I am taking Vietnam visa mission for my boss, an Canadian citizen, who is travelling Vietnam for business. I wonder if there is any way to get a stamp on the passport with visa on arrival before departing Hong Kong for Vietnam? Or have you got any other services that make visa stamping time shorten? My boss is slightly hot tempered and I am afraid that he is not keen on waiting for visa stamped upon arrival airport.

One more question: Could he use the visa approval letter if he arrived after the proposed entry date?

Thank you,

Lili Cheung. Continue reading

How many of Vietnam visa entry and exit form are required?

I have received my Vietnam visa approval letter with the instruction to get visa stamped at arrival airport. I was instructed to download an “Entry and exit form” (arrival form or M3 form) and I am ready to complete. However, when I look down the bottom of the form, it is said that:

“Note: Please fill in two forms (attaching two latest photos, in 4×6 cm size, with a face straight forward) submit one form to the Vietnam visa issuing office, or consulate and the other to frontier, police post upon arrival”

So how can I locate Vietnam visa issuing office? I live in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Is there a local office in Atlanta? Is there a charge to submit this form to the visa office? How many copy of this form are required? Please advise how I should do this and am I using the correct form.

I appreciate your assistance.
