Question: Vietnam visa for Canadian travel agent
I am a Canadian travel agent and my cleints will be flying to Vietnam in March. They are leaving Canada though on the 13Jan and will be visiting Australia and New Zealand before heading to Vietnam.
I know they need a visa so my question is what is the easiet way for them to apply for it…is there a consulate in Vancouver that they can apply ahead of time……..or should they apply online…….also looking at the informationa about applying online it looks like they fill out the application wait for approval pay the fee and than once they get to Vietnam they get it stamped and pay another fee……is that correc??? and I dont see anywhere that says what the fees are………what is the fee to get it done in person at the consulate and what is it online……..thank you
Dear Tracey Bird,
Thank you for your confirmation.
This is to inform that for Canadian passport holders, there are two options to apply Vietnam visa as follows.
1. Apply for Vietnam Visa at Vietnam Embassy in Canada (effective for air, land and sea travellers): For visa procedure and fee, please contact Vietnam Embassy in Canada. Here is the contact for your reference.

2. Apply a visa on arrival to Vietnam with us (applicable for air travelers only): If you do not wish to go to the embassy to apply Vietnam visa in person, you can apply Vietnam visa on arrival at our website. It takes 1-2 working days to proceed your visa application only.
Please submit your visa application online here and make payment. If the visa application is approved by Vietnam Immigration, a Letter of Approval will be issued by Vietnam Immigration Department. With this letter, the applicants will be allowed to fly to Vietnam and receive their visa stamped on passport at the visa on arrival counter at international airport in Vietnam.
We will send you a scanned copy of the letter via email and the applicant just need to prepare a printed copy of the letter, passport, photo, entry and exit form (we will send you the form along with the visa letter) and stamping fee, then, please submit all to the immigration officer at the airport to get the visa stamped on passport.
