Multiple Entry Visa to Vietnam

Posted by cesmonde on 20/10/2008 at 07:57

Hi, Starting December I am starting a 3 month holiday in SE Asia, (so excited!!!) starting and ending in Bangkok. Towards the end of the trip we're planning on spending a month in Vietnam then heading up to Yunnan Province for a fortnight. We're on a tight budget so the cheapest flight I could find back to Bangkok (to fly back to Australia)was from Hanoi. So I want to leave Kunming and arrive at Hanoi via bus to fly directly to Bangkok. At this point our original 30 day Vietnam visa will have ex ...

laos visa in hanoi, April 2008

Posted by cplhsu on 22/4/2008 at 17:46

Just thought I'd let any Aussie travellers know.... the going rate for a visa in Hanoi is $45 USD, you get it the next day - and this is at the Lao embassy visa branch located at 40 P Quang Trung, near Bay Nau Lake. The address listed in the LP for Lao embassy is correct, but they dont do visas there. You can get a visa for a similar price from the travel agencies around town but they tend to quote you different figures - between $45 to 50, for a visa in 2 days. The advantage is that you dont ...

Hey all. The girlfriend and I bought 2 x one way tickets from the UK to Thailand as we're planning on travelling round there, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam then staying and working in Phuket for a bit before heading down through Malaysia and Indonesia into Oz.

30day or tourist visa?

I plan to go to Thailand in August and am unsure whether to get a visa or not. My return ticket would be from Bangkok, but the time between arrival and departure would be 10weeks. I do intend to travel to Laos and Cambodia. Would i need to get a tourist visa, or would i be able to do it on the free 30-day visa thing? I don't intend to stay for more than 30days at a time in Thailand, but when going through immigration would they need to see a tourist visa? or telling them that i plan to travel to ...
