What is Vietnam visa on arrival?

Vietnam on arrival visa (pre-approved visa) is the method to receive a visa to Vietnam which you can submit an application online via travel agency - Greenvisa. You will be required to obtain an approval letter to check in at the departure terminal and pick up the visa when you arrive at 4 international airports in Vietnam (at Ho Chi Minh, Ha Noi, Da Nang, Cam Ranh City).

Currently, in addition to Vietnam visa on arrival, Chinese passport holders can also apply directly at the Vietnam Embassy in China. However, this way is quite complicated and tiresome. Greenvisa has made a comparison between VOA and Vietnam Embassy visa in China to help you easily choose the way that is most suitable for your purpose.

Vietnam visa on arrival vs. Vietnam visa at embassy

Applicable applicants

Vietnam on arrival visa is suitable for tourists traveling by airway only, while visitors opting for Vietnam visa for Chinese citizens at the embassy can choose any mode of transport.

Compulsory documents

In the normal way, to obtain embassy Vietnam visa from China, you will be required to hand-in a Vietnam visa application China (with signature), a photograph, as well as a passport (or a copy of original passport for requiring loose-leaf visa). However, you just needs to fill out the online application form which is needed for the Vietnam visa approval letter if you choose to pick up on arrival Vietnam visa China.

Processing time

People choosing visa upon arrival can select 4 working hours for super urgent service, 1 day for urgent service and 2 days for normal service as well. Meanwhile, obtaining a Vietnam visa for Chinese citizens at the embassy probably would take visitors 1-2 working days for urgent service as well as around 5 days to 1 week for normal service.

Secure visa stamp

With visa upon arrival, when coming in Vietnam, travelers have to provide a visa approval letter with needed documents and stamping fee at the Visa on arrival counter to get a visa stamped on their passport.

With visa at the embassy, applicants will receive a visa stamp along with their original passport from the Vietnam Embassy. The visa is already stamped onto the passport when the embassy sends your passport back to you.

Vietnam visa requirements for Chinese citizens

China has just become one of 163 countries that can easily request for visa on arrival. But first, citizens from China have to check out following requirements to know if they satisfy all conditions:

  • Having a 6 month validity passport beyond the travel date because sometimes applicants might get declined with less than 6 month validity passport. The passport with long validity and no blank page can be issued a loose-leaf visa.
  • Visa on arrival is only obtainable to customers traveling by air to Vietnam. You can get visa stamped at four international flight terminals of Vietnam.

  • Tourist visa and business visa are the principal categories of Vietnam visa upon arrival. Tourist visa have 3 months maximum period of stay and business visa have 12 months maximum of stay. The effective time of visa on arrival is from the travel date filled out in the application form, not from the application’s date. It is firmly recommended that tourists should make an application for visa upon arrival as soon as possible to stay away from any potential mistake.
