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 to obtain 3 months single or multiple Vietnam visa on arrival?

Many people are wondering if 3 months single or multiple entry visa on arrival will take more time to issue than 1 month visa or not?

Regarding this question, we would like to advise that 3 months Vietnam visa on arrival (single or multiple entry) can be issued within 1 to 2 hours (in emergency) or less than 36 hours (in normal).

At present 2014, the applicants can apply for 3 month visa online easily, not too much effort as the visa applied at the local Vietnam Embassy where people have to visit twice – one for documents submission and another for getting back your passport with visa stamp.

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.

Is that possible to leave on the day of visa expiration?

My visa in Vietnam expires May 1st, can I buy a plane ticket to fly out of Vietnam on May 1st or do I need to leave the day before expiration? I found one forum entry where a person said a visa is valid until midnight on the day of expiration, meaning it would be okay if I leave Vietnam before midnight on May 1st. Is that true? Or do I have to leave April 30th, before the expiration date? Continue reading
