Landing Vietnam visa (or Vietnam visa on arrival) is most likely the legally easiest way to obtain your visa to Vietnam. Instead of applying visa through Vietnam Embassy, all you need to do now is just to send us details of your passport and flight. Within 2 working days, or in urgent case, 4 working hours after receiving your request, we will send you ”Visa Approval letter” via email for picking up visa upon arrival at any international airports in Vietnam (Tan Son Nhat, Noi Bai or Da Nang, Nha Trang).

Is the “Vietnam visa on arrival” legitimate?

Yes, it is. It is issued by Vietnam Immigration department and recognized as a legal document by the Vietnamese government. The IATA (International Air Traffic Association) has recognized Vietnam visa on arrival.
