Question and Answer

Hello. How can i help you today?

Information about Visa On Arrival?


we’re a group of four people planning a 20 days trip to Vietnam in august.

We would like some clarification about the “Visa On Arrival Procedure”: reading over the internet, we’ve found divergents traveler’s opinions about the Visa On Arrival procedure, stating that is “not official” or “not always accepted” and that there have been travelers not being able to board on a flight due to the refusal of that Visa procedure by the local authorities.
In detail, we will fly to Hanoi from Bangkok.

So, we’re hereby asking: is the Visa On Arrival totally safe and accepted or are we going to have problems travelling to Vietnam with this kind of document?

Waiting for your kind and exhaustive reply, we send best regards.
