How many types of visa in Vietnam and what are they?
@Ronald B. Martin:There are 4 types of Vietnam visa: tourist visa, business visa, diplomatic and official Vietnam visa and transit visa. Tourist visa is the most popular one. Click website to see details and procedures for application of each visa type. In addition, base on the length of stay and number of entry, visa is divided into 1 month or 3 month, single or multiple entry visa
 I enter Vietnam for doing business, do I have to apply for Vietnam business visa?
@Katherine:Actually you could apply for Vietnam tourist visa in this case, because Vietnam Government do not care about the visa type when people applying for a visa. If your business in Vietnam takes less than 1 month, you should apply for a tourist 1 month visa. However, for Vietnam visa on arrival, you do not need a sponsor when applying for both tourist visa or business visa, for Vietnam embassy visa, it's required a Vietnamese organization invitation letter and guarantee to get a business visa.

 What is the simplest way to get visa to Vietnam?
@Rémy Grimard:The easiest and simplest way to get visa to Vietnam is to apply online for visa on arrival. What you need to do is just to work with a Internet connected computer or mobile devices for a while to fill out the application form, make payment, and wait only 1 or 2 working days, or even some hours to receive the visa approval letter via email. By showing this letter + passport + photos and paying the stamping fee to the Immigration Counter upon arrival in Vietnam, you will get your visa stamped onto passport, and free to enter Vietnam
Timothy BoyerReply
What is Vietnam single and multiple entry visa?
@Timothy Boyer:A Vietnam single entry visa allows you to enter Vietnam once during its validity time but a multiple entry visa allows you to enter Vietnam more than once (as many times as you can) during its validity time. For example, if you enter Vietnam now, stay some days and leave for Cambodia, when re-entering Vietnam, you can still use your current Vietnam multiple entry visa (within its validity). The stamping fee are request to pay at the first entry only.
Maya ParkinsonReply
What is Vietnam visa exemption?
@Maya Parkinson:Those passport holders whose nationalities are in Vietnam visa exemption are allowed to enter Vietnam without a visa within certain period of time. Examples are Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Japan, South Korea, Russia, etc...
Carlos Cardoso MartinsReply
When do I need visa extension and how long in advance do I need it?
@Carlos Cardoso Martins:You will have your Vietnam visa extended in case your visa expires and you expect to stay in the country longer. For example, your visa is a 1 month entry visa, but you would like to stay in Vietnam for 45 days in total, you need to get your visa extended 1 month more. Mostly the visa could be extended once. It would be best for visa applicants to have visa extended about 10 days before its expiration. The easiest way is to ask an agent do it for you.
Jaroslav HolubReply
When do I need visa renewal and how long in advance do I need it?
@Jaroslav Holub:You will have your Vietnam visa renewed when you need to change it from single into multiple entry, or you need to extend it more than once. It would be best for visa applicants to have visa renewed about 10 days in advance. The easiest way is to ask an agent do it for you.
Steffen SchneiderReply
I am a Vietnamese overseas, do I need a visa to enter Vietnam?
@Steffen Schneider:According to Vietnam regulation, the overseas Vietnamese are offered Vietnam visa exemption, that is, they could enter Vietnam without a visa. However, they are required to submit a number of documents and proofs to prove that they are original Vietnamese  to the Vietnam Embassy/ Consulate to be granted visa exemption document. Thus, if one does not have much time, the quickest way to enter Vietnam is to apply for a visa to Vietnam via an agent.
Linda J. LuceroReply
Is that possible to apply for Vietnam visa at weekend, on Vietnamese holidays or overtime?
@Linda J. Lucero:Yes, you can definitely get your visa approval letter done on this occasion at a higher processing fee. You had better check your Vietnam visa requirements to make sure that you must have a visa to enter Vietnam. An early application will help you to avoid many troubles and expenses. If it happens unfortunately, please contact us and we are assured that we can help.

Can a visa agents help me in arranging a letter of approval or I can do it by myself?
@Rebecca J. Thrailkill:You can apply for a visa at the Vietnam Embassy in your country by yourself, however, you need to ask a Vietnam visa agent for the help in arranging Vietnam visa on arrival. Vietnam visa agents have a great command of Vietnamese visa and they normally have a good relationship with Vietnam Immigration Department that make their work really efficient. Your visa can be arranged in short time, accuracy and safety then

How much the visa stamping 

Stamping Fees ( Pay upon arrival At Vietnam airport at landing visa counter)

Stamping fee is the fee you pay directly to Immigration Officers in cash (at Immigration Desk/Counter) at your arrival airport in Vietnam to have visa stamped onto your passport. The fee is collected by Immigration Officers and compulsory for all those who use visa on arrival method. The Stamping fee can be paid in USD or VND, etc. but USD is highly recommended to avoid any unexpected unbalanced exchange rates applied at the airport. See table above for details.

  1 or 3 Months single entry visa will be   : $ 25 USD/person
 1 or 3 Months mutiple entry visa will be: $ 50 USD/Person
 6 Months multiple entry visa will be:       $ 95 USD /person
