What is the visa approval letter?

The Visa Approval letter is the letter approved, signed & red sealed by the Vietnam Immigration Department (Vietnam Government). It allows you board and pick up your visa on arrival at any of the four international airports of Vietnam.

– Normally, the letter you get will have bulk applications of up to 30 persons and all applicants’ names are printed on the one letter. This kind of letter is cheaper.

– If you are concerned about privacy or security, you can ask your agent for a private approval letter that bears only your name, and if applicable, the names of family members or friends who are travelling with you. This kind of letter costs more.

Note:

Print the entire approval letter (preferably in color but this is not essential) and don’t forget to take it with you! Some airlines will ask to see the letter before they allow you to check in or board the aircraft and you will need it at the VOA desk when you arrive at the airport in Vietnam.

Visa On Arrival (VOA) is one of the several visa types issued by the Vietnamese Immigration Department to foreigners intending to enter the country.

Please note that unlike the visa on arrival of some other countries, in order to get Vietnam’s Visa On Arrival, you must have a visa approval letter from the Immigration Department of Vietnam. This allows you to pick up your visa on arrival at the international airport of Vietnam.

With the visa approval letter, you can get your Vietnam visa at the international airports of Vietnam, such as Noi Bai airport (Ha Noi city), Tan Son Nhat airport (Ho Chi Minh City city), Cam Ranh airport (Nha Trang city) and Da Nang airport (Da Nang city).

The e-visa is an alternative to a paper-based visa issued by the embassies of Vietnam. Instead of applying for a visa at the embassies of Vietnam, the Immigration Department of Vietnam has now launched an E-VISA program, which enables you to apply for a visa online.
