Our first port of arrival on a cruise is Ha Long Bay. Can I get loose leaf e-visa before I leave United States or can I get a visa at the cruise seaport when I arrive.

@Sudhir Suchak, We advise you to apply for an e-visa instead of a loose-leaf visa, as it will allow you to enter Vietnam through the Halong International Cruise Port.
