Visa on arrival

Please note that an Approval Letter only works when you fly into Vietnam. Travelling by land requires a pre-arranged visa.
For the majority of countries a visa for Vietnam is still required and to be safe, in general, passports should be valid for six months from the date of entry into Vietnam. Visitors must have a visa before entering Vietnam. Get Up And Go Vietnam can arrange this easily and quickly for you.There are basically 2 ways to get a visa for Vietnam. The first one is to arrange it in your home country but it is for sure more expensive. The second way is to apply for a so called Approval Letter (visa authorisation letter). This is a formal document that gives you permissions to fly to Vietnam (you will be denied on your flight without either a visa or an approval letter!). On arrival at the airport you can then go to the Visa on Arrival desk and apply for a Visa on Arrival. For this you need to handover the following information:
1. Approval Letter
2. Filled in Application Form (we will send it to you)
3. Passport picture
4. Passport
5. Visa stamping fee of $25 (for single entry 1 month visa)
You’ll be given back your passport with visa shortly after.
To directly apply for you Approval Letter you can use the link below which will leed you to an online fill-in form. After you filled it in (be sure that it is complete and correct) and submitted it we see it in our system and we will apply for the Approval Letter after payment. Once received, we will send you the Approval Letter along with the Application Form and all other information about the procedure at the airport. Normally the application process for the Approval Letter takes 2 to 3 working days. Please remind that the immigration office is closed on Saturdays and Sundays. Please keep this in mind when you apply!
Please be aware that Get Up And Go Vietnam can not be held resposible for incorrect submitted information. For Dutch citizens for example passport numbers don’t contain the letter O so this should always be the number 0. Our system is also set up that dates should be entered as month, day and year, MM-DD-YYYY. It is always possible to send ( us a copy of your passport anyway so we can take full responsibility for your application.
