Questions

forms are different for visa sites

looking at the forms on both the consulate and the embassy websites, the forms are different which site/form is correct.

visa extension question

Do you handle visa extension? How do I apply? Can I apply for an extension before the visa expires? How long will it take? How much does it cost? What happens if I overstay my visa? Thanks for your time.

Passport expiring in 3 months from date of arrival

My passport expires 3 months from date of arrival. I am applying for 1 month single entry visa. Is this okay? (FAQs posted on this site say passport validity should be 1 month beyond visa validity period but your online form ask for 6 months validity of passport.) Thanks, SG.

Re obtaining visa through your Canberra Embassy

As my husband Graham and I will be travelling by ship, which is the Diamond Princess, and will be arriving at Ho Chi Minh City (Phu My) on 25th November 2009 and arrive at 7 a.m. and depart at 5.30pm on the same day, we would like to obtain a visa for us to do so as soon as possible. What do we need to do to obtain same? Do we need to send a photo plus our passport plus the visa fee expense to your Embassy. Could you please advise us how we can obtain our visa for this visit. Many thanks, and much appreciated for your assistance. Audrey Pearson.

multi entry

We would like to get a multi entry visa and would like to know if we can purchase a visa on arrival on line. We will be arriving in Ho Chi Minh City by plane from Australia, but returning to Ho Chi Minh City overland from Pnom Phen. Are we able to use the visa on arrival for our return to vietnam overland ( second time), or do we need to get a visa from the consulate normally. Thank you, sincerely, Liz Hillaire

visa on line

My son is travelling to Vietnam on Friday 28th 6pm flight. His passport will be with us on Wednesday (tomorrow) by 1pm - if we make application straight away will you be able to get approval letter back before midday on Friday 28th. Is there away of doing a rush visa with you if there is not enouth time. He will be needing a 1month tourist visa single entry Thank you Mark

Lebanese passport

I am a Lebanese national currently in Laos. Can I use your online application for the Vietnman visa and get it stamped at the airport? The "Check Requirement" on your main page doesn't list Lebanon. Thanks George

Canadian visiting other countries prior to Vietnam

Hi, I'm a Canadian citizen. I'm planning to tour Asia this December and my destinations include Hong Kong, Beijing and Vietnam. I will be flying to these other destinations before arriving in Vietnam. (example: Canada to Hong Kong for 1 week, then Hong Kong to Vietnam for another week, with the remaining week flying from Vietnam to Beijing. Are the visa's to Vietnam based on the location I arrived from? or is it based solely on my country of citizenship? Is the visa all I need to access Vietnam? or would I need to fill out other forms because i will be arriving from a different location (other than directly from Canada) Thanks, Kevin.
