Visa to Vietnam
Almost all visitors to Vietnam need a visa to enter the country, although some qualified exemptions apply for citizens of those countries with bilateral reciprocal agreements with Vietnam. Depending upon the nationality and passport of the applicant, a tourist visa may be granted for either a fifteen (15) or thirty (30) day stay in Vietnam. Tourist visa can be obtained at the Vietnamese diplomatic offices or consulates in foreign countries. You can also get the visa with the help of a licenced Vietnamese Travel Company, so-called "Visa On Arrival". Visas may be either single-entry or multiple-entry as requested at time of application.
