The Most Common Mistake made by Australians in getting Vietnam Visa on Arrival

By: hanhpham

A valid visa is required for all Australians citizens. Many people may hear about Vietnam visa on arrival and they think that as its name depicts, visa on arrival requires them to do nothing at all before their departure for Vietnam, they only need to enter Vietnam and pick up their visa at your entry point in Vietnam. But it is not. And because of that thought, many Australians have to use super-urgent service to get visa application processed quickly or even they have to cancel all their reserved services just due to failure to apply for Vietnam visa timely. It is really a waste of money.

Here we would like to confirm that although they will pick up their visa at arrival in Vietnam, they need to obtain a VISA APPROVAL LETTER beforehand. Without this approval letter, they cannot get on board to Vietnam.

What is full procedure to obtain a Vietnam visa on arrival for Australian citizens?

Like many other nationals, it is very simple to obtain a Vietnam visa on arrival for Australians. It is just in 4 steps as follows:

  • Step 1: Submit online application form with required information including visa type, visiting duration, contact email, contact name and applicant’s information (full name, date of birth, gender, passport number and passport expiry date);
  • Step 2: Check all information for its accuracy and then pay for service fee via online channels (including: Paypal, OnePay and Western Union);
  • Step 3: Receive visa approval letter via email within 1 or 2 working days (or even 4 working hours if you are in rush);
  • Step 4: Get full visa stamped upon arrival at Vietnam airport.

So, after knowing these 4 steps, please do not make the same mistake to save you a great amount of money.

But please keep in mind that Australian citizens can use this kind of visa only if they travel to Vietnam by air. This is a compulsory requirement to use visa on arrival to Vietnam.
