Is Vietnam visa on arrival legitimate?



Yes, it is. It is issued by Vietnam Immigration department and recognized as a legal document by the Vietnamese government. The IATA (International Air Traffic Association) has recognized Vietnam visa on arrival. Check out the visa information sections on the following airline websites: Sky team, Oneworld and Star Alliance.

There are number ways to get a visa to enter the country of Vietnam for a business trip or family vacation. Of course, you might travel to a Vietnam Embassy nearby to get the required documents. The problem is that many people do not have easy access to a local embassy, and that can make it difficult to get the travel documents they need. That why Vietnamese Government has launched a new visa approval system called Vietnam visa on arrival to help people who is living far from Vietnam Embassy approaching a visa application easily.

"Vietnam visa on arrival" is stated in the Immigration Laws of Vietnam Article 24, 1999, Chapter III, Article 6, foreigners are granted entry at International Border gate point under the following conditions:
a) They enter for funerals of their relatives, for visits to their seriously ill relatives;
b) They depart from countries where Vietnamese diplomatic missions and/or Consulates are not available.
c) They enter for visit under programs organized by international tour enterprises of Vietnam;
d) They enter to provide urgent technical support for programs, projects, to give first- aid to seriously ill person, accident victims, to provide rescue for victims of natural disasters and epidemics in Vietnam.
e) For other urgent reasons.
Except for condition C, in which customers will have to deal with a visa agency who will forward the applications over to the immigration office, the rest of conditions need to be verified and pre-approved by Vietnamese embassies and consulates abroad.

Other governments also recognize Vietnam visa on arrival as a legitimate travel document, such as the U.S. Department of State and the British Embassy in Hanoi: "In order to enter Vietnam, you will need a valid passport with at least six months validity remaining and a Vietnamese visa, a visa exemption document, or a written approval letter for a visa upon arrival. To obtain a written approval letter to enter, you must contact a travel agency prior to departure."

Why Vietnam visa on arrival is preferred?

Obviously you can apply Vietnam visa directly at Vietnam Embassy. However, in case there is no Vietnam Embassy or Consulate in your country, or you just want to make Vietnam as one part of a multi-destination trip, we recommend Vietnam visa upon arrival as your best option since it saves a lot of time and money.
