    How long does the process of applying for a 30 day visa for Vietnam in Bangkok take. We are flying into Bankok from the UK on Nov 11. Will one week be long enough as we need to book an air ticket to Hanoi now!

    I got one in Bangkok and it took 5 working days although their website states 1-4 days.

    I could have paid extra for an express service but did not find out the details as it was not an issue for me.

    Hope that helps.

    One week will definately be enough.

    I did it last year and I got it within 24 hours. Costed me $100 though!
