Why we are cheaper?

lowest-price-visa-vietnam

Until 2020, Vietnam wants to welcome at least 15 million international tourists per year, so the government has approved visa exemption policies for some key markets, loosen visa requirements for tourists.... and e-visa application for tourists will be launched next year 2017.

With current visa policy, some travel agents in Vietnam offer tourist visa for free if you book tours, hotels or tickets...with them. It means that the fee to arrange visa approval letter is very cheap (not cheap for all countries but most). This is the main reason why you get cheap service fee from us.

If you have time to find out, there are many visa companies that also offer cheap service like us or even cheaper but they are hard to be found on Google Search. We have worked for more than 10 years and found that we will not have more customers if we don't pay much money for Pay Per Click advertising (Google Adwords) : $3-4 for 1 click, in some markets like USA, Canada, Hong Kong, India, China...... we have to pay $4-5 per click. Now, we know how to pay a very small amount for Google Adwords, so we can offer you cheap fee from $15.

To keep low cost guarantee, please:

- Remember our domain www.ivisa.vn after checking the fee with other websites then comeback to us to apply for your visa. We have more chances to live to and offer you best price if you save us a click on Google Adwords.

- Also, save us a call so we have a chance to serve you at a low cost. Apply online or contact us via email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. [very fast reply guarantee]

Why apply for visa on arrival Vietnam?

- Cheap: please check the total fee for getting visa at the embassy or consulate of Vietnam in your country then compare with us, for example, 1-month single entry tourist visa, is only $15 + $25 ($15 is service fee pay for us to get visa approval letter & $25 is for stamp fee paid to get your visa stamped on your passport).

- Hassle free: No need of chasing down the procedure at the embassy or consulate, just apply online to receive your visa approval letter via email then print it out to show when boarding and picking up your visa on arrival.

- Easy to amend: It is impossible to amend the entry and exit date if you got your visa from the embassy, but you can amend or change the entry and exit date easy if you applied for visa on arrival.

- Paid full amount to get visa at embassy, BUT just from $15 for service fee until the picking up of your visa on arrival Vietnam. So less cost if your trip delayed or cancelled.

- Embassy requires extra paper works (visa approval letter) if you apply for a business visa with them, BUT we don't. Citizens of some countries like Iran, Iraq, Oman, UAE, Pakistan, Bangladesh….are required to have visa approval letter from Vietnam Immigration even if they request for tourist visa, but they can get visa on arrival much easy with us.

- Fast & Support 24/7: Consular section for visa just opens few hours in few days in a week for visa applicants. However, you can apply for visa on arrival at any time, any day or night, you can even apply for it during public holidays. “Visa On Arrival Office” at the airport is also open 24/7
