    Was just wondering if someone could tell me the best place to go to extend a tourist visa in Saigon and how easy is it to do?

    You can go to your consulate in Ho Chi Minh or contact travel agent. Make sure your visa extension before expired date

    Good luck

    It is possible to do it yourself however it is not worth the hassle. Just go to any travel agent and pay the money, There are several type of visa extensions you can get, and different prices. Check the time frames to get your passport back. What should be 3 days can take 2 weeks.

    get photocopies of your passport and existing visa stamp, better still photographs.

    If you are wanting to travel they just ship the passport down by bus get it stamped and back again.

    You do not go to a Consulate but to the Immigration Office ! However, easier for you to go to a good agency ; they take a small fee but you avoid the hassle, which seems to be limited in Saigon, but not in Hanoi !
