Dear Celeste,

Thank you for your email.

This is to inform that you can apply visa on arrival with us now for your entry on August 2014. We would like to clarify you the steps to get visa on arrival as follow.

Step 1 – Submit your visa application form and pay the service fee secure online.

Step 2 – If your visa application is approved by Vietnam Immigration Department, you will receive the “Visa approval letter” which allows you to pick up your visa at the Vietnam international airports.

Step 3 – Bring “Visa approval letter”, passport, 2 photos, “exit and entry form”, and stamping fee to get your visa stamped at the Vietnam international airports.

Please note earlier arrival and later exit is not acceptable. Please put your soonest date of arrival and latest date of exit.

We hope that you find this answer helpful and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards,
