I will be arriving in Vietnam by train from China. I am unsure of arrival date, between the 1st and 5th of December. How do l get a Vietnam visa? I fly out from Ho Chi Minh City on the 3rd of January. Craig Elrick.

Dear Craig Elrick,

In this case you can enter an planned date of arrival into your Vietnam visa application, the earliest date you may enter Vietnam (1st December) since you can only arrive in Vietnam after that date.

As you enter Vietnam on train, you should first check whether you can apply for an e-visa or not. Otherwise,  you need to contact the Vietnam visa embassy which is most convenient for you to apply for visa to Vietnam.

For details of Vietnam Embassy in foreign countries, you can access to our https://www.vietnam-visa.com/embassy/.

Should you have further concern, feel free to contact us at +84.946.583.583 or [email protected].

Wish you all good things,
