Norwegian citizens may apply for both tourist and business visa to Vietnam for the stay of 1 to 6 months from Norway. Please check this link for visa fee for Norwegian citizens.

Cheap Vietnam visa for travel

The Tourist Visa for Vietnam must be issued before arrival and the typical visa is valid for 30 or 90 days. This is the most popular style of visa used by travelers to Vietnam. In some rare cases, the visa begins to expire from the day it is issued, so it is a good idea to get your visa as close as possible to your intended arrival date.

The cost of a Vietnamese visa varies tremendously depending on where you apply — a Vietnamese tourist visa costs A$70 in Sydney, Australia, but just US$25 in Jakarta, Indonesia and US$30 in Bangkok, Thailand. So, if you have the time, get your visa from a Vietnamese embassy somewhere in Asia rather than in your home country.

Vietnam does not have a visa on arrival system for its land borders, it does though if you’re arriving by air — read on for more information.

Visa on arrival

More a pre-arranged visa than a real visa on arrival, these visas are arranged through a travel agent in Vietnam who obtains a “Letter of Approval” from the Vietnamese immigration department. This letter is copied to you and to the international airport you’re planning on using and when you arrive at the airport your visa should be ready to go. There is easy way to get a cheap Vietnam visa: You can apply online at http://vietnamvisacheap.net. You have to pay 8 dollars for 1 person/ 1 month, very cheap.

There’s a wide range of prices and length visas available (up to six month, multiple-entry) and a near endless number of Vietnamese travel agents who’ll happily arrange the visa for you — Google something like “Vietnam visa on arrival” to find about four squillion agents to choose from.

Extensions

Extending a visa once in Vietnam is straightforward and a standard tourist visa can be extended three times (generally for a month at a time, though longer extensions of 90 and 180 days are also possible) before you need to leave and get a new one. The price varies depending on how many time you have extended it, but bank on somewhere between US$20 and $40, and the process takes around 3 days.

Validity issues

The main thing to watch for are visas that start running out from the day they are issued. Although this situation is increasingly rare, it does still occur, so be sure to check beforehand.

Visa application forms often request an entry point and entry date. In our experience, these have been flexible, but we’ve heard anecdotal stories of people saying they’ll be entering on one day, showing up a few days early and being turned away

Things to watch out for

Make sure that you are stamped into Vietnam for the amount of time you’re allowed. Vietnamese visas are full page stickers, so make sure you have enough space in your passport.

VOA, thing needs to be prepared before you go. How can I get a cheap Vietnam visa?

VOA – Vietnam Visa On Arrival

If you are planning to arrive in Vietnam by AIR at Ho Chi Minh, Hanoi or Da Nang airport, an alternative to obtaining a full visa stamp from the Vietnamese Embassy in your country is to opt for a very simple and cheap Vietnam visa on arrival (VOA). Once issued, this visa is exactly the same as an embassy/consulate issued visa with the same limitations and conditions attached to its use.

The VOA paperwork is not a full visa, rather you employ an agent (before you arrive) in Vietnam to obtain an official letter of approval that you present at the VOA desk when you land. Upon payment of a stamping fee ($25 for a single entry visa, $50 for a multi-entry) you will receive your passport back with a full visa inside. Most sites ask about your present nationality as part of the application process, and provided you qualify you can apply for a 1 month or a 3 month visa, single or multi-entry. The amount charged by VOA agents for their service varies from $14 to $50, depending on the type of visa and the agent in question. Some tour operators and travel agents offer cut-price VOAs in the hope that you will book tours with them.

The only disadvantage of VOAs is that the VOA process at the airport can be slow, particularly at HCMC airport (Tan Son Nhat), where things can become pretty chaotic if people do not form an orderly queue. HCMC airport is Vietnam’s busiest and has far more traffic than the other two airports, so in the high season it is not uncommon to have to wait for an hour or more, particularly if you are stuck behind a large tour group. In Hanoi and Da Nang, and even in HCMC in the low season, during quiet times of the day it can take less than 15 minutes to get your visa and pass through immigration – indeed you are likely to arrive at the baggage carousel before your bags do.

Applying for a VOA letter of approval on-line is very easy and there are many reputable agents, e.g www.vietnamvisacheap.net (using a search engine – Google, Yahoo etc. – search for ‘Vietnam visa booking’). They accept all major credit cards and with some you can pay through PayPal.

On the agent’s web site or by email you have to provide the following information:

Your full name (some agents specifically require the name in the exact order used in the passport, so surname first)
Present nationality
Date of birth
Passport number
Passport expiry date
Proposed date of arrival (the visa will start from this date regardless of your actual arrival date – you may enter at a later date but not before, so be sure to take time zone differences into account)
Flight reference
Arrival time
Airport of arrival and purpose of visit

Approval letter

After entering the information on-line or following email confirmation you will be directed to a secure web site to pay the agency fee. In 2-3 days the agent will email you the Approval letter (see image). Don’t be alarmed if there are other people’s names on the letter (it is common for agents to make bulk applications and all applicants’ names are printed on the one letter, together with their dates of birth and passport numbers), but if you have concerns about privacy or security you should instead consider applying to an embassy/consulate for your visa. Please make sure that your surname, given names and required entry/exit dates are 100% correct. You will not be allowed to enter Vietnam before the entry date shown.The approval letter is valid at any of the three named airports but cannot be used at any land border crossing. If entering via a land crossing you must already be in possession of a visa.

Print out the entire letter of approval 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. The agent might also send you an  Application for Entry and Exit visa form ( this form is available upon arrival but you will need to queue to obtain it). You should fill in this form in advance (ignore the instructions about printing two copies – only one is needed).

Visa on arrival is handled by the immigration service at the airports and as such if the airport is operating, so is the VOA department. It is absolutely vital that you have your visa fee(s) with you, in cash because there are no money machines (ATM’s), money changers or any way of withdrawing money in the immigration hall and the authorities do not take plastic. If you cannot pay up in cash you won’t get into the country and you’ll end up having a wonderful holiday camped on the wrong side of the barrier until your return flight leaves. If you have a bank card, someone in authority might decide to take you out to the ATM’s to get some money. Meanwhile you might starve to death etc (slight exaggeration, but you get the point), as it might be many hours before that happens.

At Ho Chi Minh City (Tan Son Nhat International airport) the VOA window is situated over to the left as you enter the immigration hall, at the far end. The counter is sign-posted – LANDING VISA. Do not join any queues for Immigration Control. When you get to the VOA (Landing Visa) window, be prepared to hand over your Passport, one copy of the Entry and Exit form, entire letter of approval and one passport size photo (the officer will staple your photo to the form if not already attached). You should then go and sit down. Even with few people being processed do not expect passports (with the visa attached) to be returned in the order that they were presented at the window.

When your visa is ready, your name will be called. You then pay the stamping fee (USD $25 single entry, USD $50 multi-entry) You must pay in cash (no change is given) in Dong or U.S. Dollars. The notes should be in good condition but it’s not necessary for them to be brand new. At HCMC, they will also accept AUD – $28 instead of USD $25), €25 Euros (but no change is given). Once you have paid, your passport will be returned to you along with a receipt for your payment. Check the newly issued visa for any errors while still at the window.

You then go to the immigration control posts to be processed in the normal way. Baggage reclaim/ Customs is downstairs.

Note: Public holidays in Vietnam, e.g. Tet (Vietnam’s New Year), can seriously delay not only VOA applications but also embassy issued visas, so apply in good time. 

Note: Citizens of some countries do not need a visa for short visits, but please check that the following information is still valid:
– Stays of not more than 30 days: citizens of Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Cambodia and Laos
– Stays of not more than 15 days: citizens of Japan, South Korea, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Russian Federation.

Note: Extending a visa is a simple process.  However you will need to do it through an agent because there are many rules and the passport will have to be sent to HCMC or Hanoi. In general all extended visas are single entry and the duration can be for 1 month or 3 months (1 month visas are not usually eligible for a 3 month extension). The cost ranges from $20 to $40 depending on the number of months and the distance from the immigration office. The application can only be processed during the last week of the current visa’s validity and it usually takes 3 to 10 days.

Dear Mark,

Thank you for contacting us!

Please be advised that the current Vietnam Immigration law allows people entering Vietnam as foreigners by air to get Vietnam visa upon arrival. To get Vietnam visa on arrival, you are firstly to obtain a Vietnam visa approval letter issued by the Immigration Department in Vietnam.

You can start the visa application at cheap Vietnam visa and do as guidance. It takes 2 working days to get the letter finished. For those who are in rush for Vietnam visa, an emergency Vietnam visa is recommended.

From Singapore or Kuala Lumpur, you can also come directly to Vietnam Embassy there and apply forVietnam visa yourselves.
