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
