What is the fastest way to get a Vietnam visa?

There at least three options to apply for a visa to Vietnam. However, visa on arrival seems to be the quickest and easiest way as it only takes 2 hours or less to receive the approval letter by email.

Processing time options

Visa on arrival Visa at embassy E-visa
Less than 2 hours (emergency processing) 3 business days 4-8 working hours

Which one to choose?

  • If your travel date is more than one week ahead, you can choose e-visa or visa at the embassy for cost effective.
  • If you need your visa very quickly and have no time to apply through the embassy, then visa-on-arrival is the best option to obtain your visa for Vietnam.

My friend and I we are planning to go to Vietnam, and we have some questions for you regarding the Visa issue:

1. We are Chinese (and holding Chinese passport), we plan to fly to Ho Chi Minh through Hong Kong. Is it possible that we could get a Visa-upon-arrival if we fly from Hong Kong (and therefore don’t need to get a Vietnam visa in Beijing)? Is there a “letter of approval” for the Visa-upon-arrival?

2. How soon could we get the letter of approval (the fastest way)? And how much should we pay for it?

@Yinan Cheng, At present, visa on arrival is not an option for obtaining an emergency visa. Instead, you can apply for an e-visa, which can be processed in as soon as 8 working hours.
