Can we avail of the visa on arrival if we are not entering via an airport? We will be traveling around South East Asia and so intend to travel in and out of Vietnam by bus. What is the best way for us to obtain a Vietnam visa? Niamh Lohan.

Hi Niamh Lohan,

Please be noted that Vietnam visa on arrival service is only applicable for those traveling to Vietnam by air. In case you travel to Vietnam by bus, you firstly should check whether you eligible for an evisa for Vietnam or not. The eligibility for an evisa for Vietnam covers your nationality and your port of entry into Vietnam. You can check it here

In case you are not eligible for Vietnam evisa, please kindly contact the nearest Vietnam embassy to get your visa for Vietnam. Here are contact details of Vietnam Embassies worldwide:

Should you need any further information, please feel free to let us know.

Have a nice day,
