Update 24.10.2019: Unfortunately, more and more travelers are contacting us with problems when applying for an electronic visa called e-Visa. Either that their e-Visa did not arrive at the given time. In the worst case, not at all. Or that they have filled in the wrong details when applying and don't know how to get in touch with support at immigration. Unfortunately in this case there is not much we can do to help as it is a completely different visa to the one you get when you apply on our website. The only and often chosen way to get out of this last-minute mess is to apply for an URGENT Visa Approval Letter on our website. We are able to arrange this within the next working day but unfortunately, there is a higher fee involved. Without a valid e-Visa and or "Approval Letter", the Airline will not let you board the plane!!!
If you are looking for the cheapest option to enter Vietnam, you can apply directly on our website for a so-called "Letter of Invitation" with which there is no problem Visas to Vietnam can be made for longer than 30 days or can be easily extended. For more information please visit the VIETNAM VISA website.
