Pre-approved visa

Good day,
We aree travelling to SE Asia in a month and will be visiting Vietnam for approx. 10 days.
I have called the embassy in our city and they gave us a price of $93 for a visa. In an effort to keep costs down, I am looking for at other options to obtain a visa. I was looking on your website and there is a lower priced optionof having a pre-approved visa.
Could you please tell me how to obtain a pre-approved visa and how it is different?
Thanks for your help!

Vietnam visa for Canadians

Do I need to enter the exact arrival date on the application form or could i put an estimated date since we are unsure of the number of days we wish to stay in Hong Kong yet.

Once we submit the application online, is there anything else we need to do afterward??  What do we need to bring along with us to show the border guard at the Vietnam international airport that we have applied for the visa to enter the country???  In addition, do we need to take visa/passport pictures to present to the border guard???

Thank you very much for your help, I look forward to hear from you soon,

We wish to apply for an on-line visa to visit Viet Nam on our cruise in January. However, the only option appears t be that we need to arrive by plane in order to pick up our on-line visa. We hold valid Canadian passports but we are currently living in Israel where there is no Embassy . We also hold Israeli passports. Any advice on how to proceed would be appreciated. Thanking you in advance for your assistance.

Vietnam visa in Bangkok for UK nationals

Dear Sir/Madam

I will be traveling over the land border from Laos to Vietnam in December this year, I am quite confused as to the method of applying for a visa for Vietnam. If i apply online what is the process on arrival in a vietnam land border? I have heard that obtaining one in bangkok is possible but the price of the UK embassy seems very expensive to those obtained abroad. I will be staying around 2 weeks in Vietnam before crossing, again via land border into Cambodia. Any help or advice would be much appreciated

Kind Regards

Inquiry regarding On Arrival Visa for Indian national

I did inquiry with Vietnamese embassy in Mumbai/Bombay in India regarding visa requirement and got to know Vietnamese embassy only issues 15 day visa from the date of application. Is it the same rule for Indian nationals if I apply Vietnamese tourist visa using this web-site? I intend to travel by 24th October. Is it ok if I apply for visa this month only to avoid any delays [ Online visa ] ? I get 24th October arrival date on approval letter or the date when I apply for online visa? Please clarify. Thank you!
