    We fly into Hanoi on June 28th.
    We return home, to Ireland, on August 14th.

    We will travel south through Vietnam - maybe for 3/4 weeks, and spend the rest of the time in Cambodia and Laos and then fly back into Hanoi for a night or two before our flight home.

    I have looked up the Vietnam Embassy website and the FAQ section here. My understanding is that you can get a 30 day Visa and that you can extend it when you are out there.

    Do I just apply for the standard 30 day Visa and then get another Visa from Cambodia or Laos so that we can get back to Vietnam for our flight home?

    I would prefer to have it all sorted before I go. Will the embassy grant an extended Visa if I include my flight details.

    If I can only get a 30 day Visa is it easy to get one In Cambodia/Laos?

    Hope you can help.

    Posted from within Vietnam.

    You could probably do it one of those ways, but I think it would be best and easiest to just start with a 3-month multiply-entry visa in the first place. You can get those online through the Visa On Arrival scheme, which is cheaper than doing it through an embassy as well.

    A one-month visa extension is US$25, which is the same as the extra Stamping Fee for a multiple-entry visa ($50 instead of $25) so the costs would work out about the same, with no hassle and everything done in advance.
