Vietnam Visa query

Posted by Flo76 on 27/6/2008 at 09:54

I want to go to Northern Vietnam for 2 weeks in August 08 then return January 09 for 30 days.
Am I able to apply for two visas so close together? Is it possible to apply for a 6 month multi-entry visa to save doing it twice?

Yes, mutliple-entry visas for Vietnam are available, but in your case, two single month-long visas would probably be just as easy. It generally only takes a consulate a couple of days to process a visa application.

Posted from within Vietnam.

I agree with Stuart.

To make things easier OBTAIN A PRE-ARRANGED VISA for the second (and the first if you want) as it will make it easier.

Pre-arranged visas can ONLY be processed at Ha Noi, Da Nang and HCMC international airports.

You didn't say where you are arriving from but Pre-arranged are FAR better than dealing with the snails in the Canadian and UK Vietnamese Embassies. In the USA the California Consulate is by far the best for that country.

Arriving from China? Then there is a VN Consulate in both NanNing and KunMing - both are border provinces.

One 6-month will likely be cheaper than two 30-day visas.
