Question: Vietnam Visa support for US citizen?

Hello Samantha,

Thanks for emailing me the form. I thought I could apply online for a visa that will be sent to my home address and then realized I was applying for a visa on arrival. I tried to contact the ambassador offices in Seattle and Washington DC locations on how to apply for visa that is sent to my home, but they were closed. Would you be able to help me with that?

Question: Does a Chinese Citizen staying in Malaysia need a visa to visit Vietnam?

My sister in law is from China, holding a Chinese Citizen passport. She married to my brother who is a Malaysian in 2014. They are currently residing in Sarawak. However, they would like to plan for a holiday to Ho Chi Minh in the very near future. Does my sister in law need a travel visa to visit Ho Chi Minh? If so, what are the documents required and procedure? We do not have Vietnam Embassy Office in Sarawak? Can we authorize the local travel agent to apply on her behalf? Thank you.

Question: Visa required – arriving by ship

Good afternoon,

My family and I are from South Africa and we require a Visa to visit Vietnam in December. We will be arriving in Ho Chi Minh City by SHIP, Norwegian Star. How do we go about obtaining our Visas? The ship will also stop in Nha Trang, so we need a multiple Visa. On your website everything refers to obtaining the Visa when you arrive at the airport, which we will not be doing.

Please advise. Many thanks.

Kind Regards
