Dear Daniela Degidio,

Thank you for contacting us.

We are writing to inform that South African passport holders are able to apply for Visa on Arrival (air traveller only). Normally, it takes up to 02 working days to process and send back your visa approval letter (except weekends) so that you can print it out and board on your plane then get the official Vietnam visa stamp up on your arrival at the airport. We also provide airport fast track to help you save time with landing visa procedure or go through Immigration counter with private line as well as car transfer to your hotel. Please give us a note if you wish to book this service with us.

Kindly note that there are 2 different kinds of fee that you need to pay to get Vietnam visa

- Processing fee (pay in advance to us to get approval letter)

- Stamping fee (pay directly in cash to Visa counter at any Vietnam international airport to get visa stamp)

Kindly send us the photo or the scan of your passport information page and confirm us your earliest expected arrival date together with the exact type of visa (1 or 3 months - single or multiple entries) you wish to apply so that we can send back a confirmation email together with payment link for your visa order.

We hope that the above information is helpful for you. Should you need any further support, please let us know.

Best regards,

Daphne Le (Ms.)
