Getting 3 months multiple entry visa for Vietnam.


My partner and i are wanting to apply for Vietnam visas online. Ive heard a lot of websites are not legit and do not get accepted in Vietnam, is this correct?

We leave for china on friday the 8th august and fly from hong kong to hanoi on the 5th of september.

We want a 3 month multiple entry visa for Vietnam as we will exit into Cambodia and enter back into Vietnam. We have our flight booked to hanoi and an exit flight booked on the 6th of november from ho chi min back to Australia. Do we need to provide the dates in between our initial entry date and our last exit date? As we have not planned our trip precisely and do not know when we are exiting into Cambodia and entering back into Vietnam, is this a problem or and do we need exact dates?

Thank you

Getting Vietnam visa across the border from Cambodia


My husband and I are traveling via land from Phnom Penh, Cambodia to Ho Chi Minh City, Vientnam in October this year. My understanding is that a visa approval letter applied for on line is not acceptable at a land crossing, only at the international airports. Would you please advise me how is the easiest and best way to apply for our visas for Vietnam please. I do not want to have any difficulty crossing the border from Cambodia to Vietnam. Thank you for your help.

Vietnam visa 6 months

Read on vietnam-landingvisa website that since 2009 Vietnam Immigraton has only issued 3 months visa as longest visa and not 6 months.. I want to visit and open bank account and appears they want to see 6 months visa. Once I have bank account in Vietnam then I submit bank info to Canada and they will direct deposit my Canada Pension there and it takes 4-5 months for them to do this..

So after I visit and open account I return in about 5-6 months to live there knowing I have bank account and direct deposit from Government of Canada in place. so is it possible to get 6 months visa or is 3 months the longest that is issued?
