Visa for Cruising Tourist

Hi, I am a Canadian citizen and living in Vancouver BC. I am planning to travel in Asia. During my visit in China, I will go on a cruise trip in Sanya and the cruise will take me to one of Vietnamese ports for a day. What kind of visa application procedure can I follow? Can I apply visa online? Does the Visa on Arrival work for my situation?

Please advise.

Travel to Vietnam overland by bus from Vientiane

My husband and I would like to travel to Vietnam overland by bus from Vientiane. Is it possible to organise a visa at the border crossing? Or is a visa only possible to obtain via your service at airports?

Vietnam visa for UK citizens travelling from Laos


I was wondering if I could get some advice please. I have booked my ticket to travel around South East Asia From start of November 2011-Feb 2012. (Thailand/Laos/Vietnam and finally Cambodia.)

I was under the impression I could apply for a 30 day tourist Visa for Vietnam from Bangkok, and cross over at the border crossing from Laos (Most likely at Tay Trang- Dien Bien Phu.)

However I have recently been told by my flight company that I have to order it from the UK before I leave. Could youb please confirm for me if this is the case, and what the best way to go about it is considering the time scale.

I would really appreciate any advice you could offer, im a female planning on travelling alone so I really want to feel confident that the process of crossing borders is going to be ok.

Many thanks and kind regards

Single or multiple entry visa for Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city

Hello, I plan on arriving in Ho Chi Minh City on the 1st of October for a vacation. I plan on staying there for a few days, then to take a flight to Hanoi to travel North Vietnam with a friend for one more week. I was wondering what kind of Visa am I required to have for this kind of trip? For example is a multi-entry Visa what I need or will I need 2 single entry visas as I will be arriving in 2 different airports? Please reply at your earliest convenience. Thank You! Aidan

Vietnam Visa Fee Through USA Vietnam Embassy 2012

Dear My Vietnam Visa:

I am leading a Sierra Club trip to Vietnam in February/March, 2012, and have listed you as one of the options for obtaining a Vietnam visa. Can you please tell me how much it costs to obtain a Vietnam visa (1 month) through the USA Vietnam embassy? Two years ago it cost $65 but one of my trip participants recently told me that it has increased to $80.00 (for a 1-month visa).

Thank you! Tim Wernette
