    Can anyone tell me whether the 30-day tourist visa for Vietnam is for multi-entry?

    No, it is single entry as far as I know - perhaps check with the Vietnamese embassy

    I read on several websites that multi-entry visas are available for Vietnam as well. They are also valid for 30 days but cost more than the single-entry ones.

    I'd also like to know how long the visa takes to be processed. I will be in Bangkok and Vientiane before going to Vietnam but I didn't plan on staying in either of these more than 2 or 3 days. How long does the "express service" take? Can anyone recommend travel agencies or hotels who can assist with obtaining a visa in BKK or Vientiane?

    Note that Vietnam Visas are for fixed dates - you'll only get 30 days if you actually ask for 30 days on the application form.

    I got mine in the consulate in Sihanoukville, Cambodia for $33 in 15 minutes. As you're not going anywhere near there I'd have thought the embassy in Vientiane was your best bet as Bangkok is probably busier. Most countries seem to do a one day service if you pay a premium - this will probably be worth your while compared to the cost of staying extra days.

    Use an agency if you want, but I've never really seen the benefit - you're just paying them to fill the form and go to the consulate on your behalf.
