How long in advance should I apply for a visa?
Normally, the approval letter is processed and emailed to you within five (05) to seven (07) business days (excluding Saturday, Sunday and National Holidays).
Note: The above processing time does not apply for Friday afternoon (after 12.00 PM) + Saturday and Sunday. Please consider the time difference between Vietnam and your country. For current Vietnam time, please click here.
Note: the visa counter at Vietnam airport is 24/7 open so if you already have the approval letter, you can still pick up your visa at Vietnam airport on weekend.
