Vietnam Visa Tips(Click on each tips below to know more)
It is always recommended that our applicants will timely submit the Vietnam online visa applications at least 05-07 days before their arrival date to Vietnam, so that the official Visa Approval Letter issued by Vietnam Immigration Department can be issued and sent to applicants with 02 working days basis.
This way, the applicants will definitely avoid urgent processing time service fee: plus 10 USD/ 1 working day urgent basis; plus 20 USD/ 4 working hour super-urgent basis and plus 40 USD/ 1 working hour super emergency basis [cost / 1 applicant]. They will only need to settle payment for basic fee of handling and issuing the Vietnam visa approval letter by the Vietnam Immigration Department.
Applicants may well be aware that with the 01 month MULTIPLE entry visa type, there are two kinds of visa stamping fee settled in cash (USD/ VND) directly at the Vietnam airports by the applicants:
a. LESS THAN 30 day's multiple entry visa validity period: stamping fee is USD 65 / 1 applicant;
b. 30 day & 31 day's multiple entry visa validity period: stamping fee is USD 95 / 1 applicant;
Accordingly, with application of 01 month multiple entry visa type, unless priorly instructed by the applicants, the official Visa Approval Letter will automatically issued with LESS THAN 30 day's multiple entry visa type - to save remarkable budget of stamping fee: USD 30 / 1 pax.
Applicants themselves can also control this issue by combining their choices on Date of Arrival and Date of Exit in APPLY ONLINE SECTION. For example:
Mr. David enters Vietnam on a 1 month multiple entry basis, and he already fixes his flight booking with actual arrival date on 03 AUG 2014 to 01 SEP 2014. In his visa online application, he is recommended to choose an earlier date of arrival, e.g: 01 AUG 2014. This way, even the visa approval letter will be issued with 01 full month multipe entry visa with validity from 01 AUG to 01 SEP 2014, Mr. David will pay only USD 65 of stamping fee at the Vietnam airport, since his actual arrival date is on 03 AUG 2014 and until his registered date of exit on 01 SEP 2014, Vietnam airport officers will categorize Mr. David's visa type as LESS THAN 30 day multiple entry during his airport visa stamping process.
