Question: What do I need to do for a tourist visa?

Hi I am interested in visiting Vietnam this weekend to see colleagues.  I am U.S. citizen and working in Singapore for a few weeks.  What do I need to do for a tourist visa? I read on the Internet that I can actually apply on arrival at the airport once I arrive in Ho Chi Minh airport?

Dear Scott Kenney,

Thank you for your email.

This is to inform that you must apply for a visa approval letter issued by Vietnam Immigration Department in Vietnam before going to our country and submit the letter upon arrival to get the official visa stamped on your passport at international airports in Vietnam.

Since you are planning to visit Vietnam this weekend, please apply with us here. The standard process will take 2 working days, thus, please submit your visa application and payment before 7:30AM tomorrow on 23 Jul 2015 (Vietnam Time, GMT+7) so that the visa result can be sent to you by 17:30PM on Friday 24 Jul 2015 (Vietnam Time, GMT+7). Otherwise, to get your visa sooner, we highly recommend you to use our urgent service within 1 working day only so that the visa result can be sent to you within tomorrow.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards,

Vietnam visa Dept
