    Dear madam,

    As the TRC is not related to the job application process, you do no need it to apply for one.

    Dear Mr Sirajul Islam,

    It is informed that your wife can apply online on our website for visa on arrival but we JUST can help you to process 1 month single tourist visa and the service fee is $150US/person (not including $25US/person stamping fee at Vietnam airport). However, the Vietnam Immigration does not process 1 month visa for full 30 days, they just base on your ticket to process visa (maximum 25 days). The processing will take 7 working days

    And you can apply online at this link: https://www.vietnam-evisa.org/apply-visa.html

    In addition, after finishing payment online, please send us your passport scan + hotel booking + return ticket via email. Without those documents, we can not process visa for you

    If you want staying longer, please ask Vietnam Embassy to get more information.

    Best regards,

    Celine Nguyen
