How to get a Vietnam visa after working hours

Information on how to obtain a visa for Vietnam outside of regular business hours.

Is it possible?

Due to restrictions on visa on arrival since 2020, there are currently no alternative methods for applying for a visa to Vietnam outside of the normal working hours (8:00 am - 16:00 pm). However, in case of an emergency requiring a 2.5 hour e-visa, the application must be submitted before 16:30 pm to receive the visa within 2.5 hours or before 19:00 pm on the same day (Monday-Friday).

Many travelers plan a last-minute trip to Vietnam without having a visa!
