I’m thinking of visiting Vietnam sometime in Aug of this year and am wondering if I apply now, how long is the visa good for? Thank you. Grace Ein. 

Dear Grace,

Please be informed that your Vietnam visa validity starts from the arrival date you request, not from issuing date. Therefore, you can definitely apply for visa now without any problem.

In case you are traveling to Vietnam by air, the easiest way to get a visa for Vietnam is to get a visa on arrival as it requires you go through 3 simple steps, including:

  1. complete the online form with some required information and pay for service fee;
  2. get visa approval letter via email; and
  3. finally get visa stamped upon arrival at Vietnam airport.

Full details can be found at Vietnam visa on arrival procedures.
