Multiple entry visa or single entry visa for Vietnam for Australian

By: hanhpham

Dear Sir/Madam

I am about to purchase a visa to visit Vietnam from 24 October to 18 November. I will fly in to Ho Chi Minh City and travel up to Hoi An and Hanoi where I spend most of my time in Vietnam, but I will also visit Cambodia for around 5 – 7 days, then return to Ho Chi Minh to fly home to Australia.

I will be flying from Phnom Penh back to Ho Chi Minh in order to get my flight home. Does that mean I need a multiple entry visa?

Is it better to get a letter for a Visa on Arrival, or do I get my passport stamped in Australia before I go? If I get my passport stamped here in Australia do I have to mail it to someone, or can it be done in my local town so I don’t have to send my passport away?

Thank you, Linda.

Dear Linda,

First of all, thank you for contacting us for your question.

Regarding your question, please be informed that you will need a multiple entry visa for this trip to save cost and time as well.

Regarding how to apply, you have two ways to obtain a Vietnam visa as you mentioned above. However, as you travel to Vietnam by air, you are highly recommended to obtain a visa on arrival as will save you time to travel to the embassy to submit application documents and pick up the visa.

With visa on arrival, you don’t need to travel for applying at all. You only need to fill out the online form at, pay for service fee online and get the visa approval letter via email within 2 working days, with which you will board the flight and get visa stamped upon arrival airport in Vietnam.

We hope this information works well for you.

Should you need any further information, feel free to let us know.

Kind regards,
