There are more steps, long processing time, more expensive and most hassle. A Visa to Vietnam can be applied for by mail or in person at the Embassy of Vietnam as early as six months prior to the date of travel.

Visa fees must be in the form of MONEY ORDER, CASHIER’S CHECK or CERTIFIED CHECK payable to “THE EMBASSY OF VIETNAM.” Applicants applying together may submit combined payment in one money order or certified check. Fee for the stamping visa can be checked at Consular Fee. Other current fees (such as visa approval arrangement fee, processing fee, shipping, handling and expedite services) may be looked up at the embassy.
  4. A prepaid return envelope, if the applicant requests the visa to be returned by mail. Please use Secure Postal Service (prepaid postage stamp envelope or return label).
