Dear Colin Miles,

We would like to inform that from July 01st 2017 to June 30th 2018, citizens from the UK are granted a visa-exempt stay of 15 days with single entry. Their passports should have at least six months of validity upon the date of arrival to meet airlines’ requirements, and their arrival date is NOT within 30 days from their last exit date with visa exemption. If they wish to stay longer, a Vietnam visa is required.

Based on your itinerary, you can apply for a 1month tourist visa with single or multiple entry. There are 2 options to obtain a Vietnam visa. You can apply at the Embassy of Vietnam in your current living country, or you can apply for a visa on arrival (online) with us.
Once presenting yourself to the Embassy for a regular visa, you need to assemble all of the documents required in support of your application. The failure to do so may result in your application being denied. Moreover, it would be inconvenient if your living place is far away from the Embassy and the regular visa fee would be higher than visa on arrival fee.

Conversely, if you apply for a Visa on arrival, there is no document required. You only need to fill in the form then make online payment. After 2 working days, we will send you the approval letter via email. You should print it out to board the plane and to get the visa stamp at the Vietnam int’l airport. Alternatively, please note that you cannot get the visa yourself upon arrival without our approval letter. Link to apply: 

The service fee depends on your nationality, your length of stay and purpose of entry. For instance, if you apply for the tourist visa with 1 month single entry, the service fee is 19USD/pax (paid online) and the stamping fee is 25USD/pax (paid in cash at the arrival airport).

Should you have any further enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us at or call us at (+84) 909 343 525

Best regards,


Hannah Yan (Ms.)
