Vietnam Visa for Australians in Malaysia

By: hanhpham

I am an Australian citizen with a Australian passport and currently in Malaysia can I get a valid visa to Vietnam? we are trying to go on this date 2-11-2016 for six days.

Hi Robert King,

First of all, thank you for leaving us your message.

Regarding your question, please kindly informed that you completely get a valid Vietnam visa, regardless of your current place. There is 2 options for you as follows:

1. If you travel to Vietnam by air

If this is the case, you are highly recommended to apply for Vietnam visa online for simplicity and convenience, as its application requires you no travel, no documents and no sending off your passport at all.

Its entire procedure is as simple as follows:

  1. Obtain a visa approval letter by completing the online form and paying for service fee. The visa approval letter will be sent to you within 2 working days at maximum. It is issued by the Vietnam Immigration Department via a local travel agent as an official authorization to let you get on flight to Vietnam;
  2. Get visa stamped at the airport in Vietnam by presenting the letter, original passport, entry and exit form (sent together with the visa approval letter to email) and stamping fee.

In case you travel in Vietnam for just 6 days, it costs you just US $46 at maximum. It can be lower if you travel in groups.

Detailed cost of Vietnam visa online can be found at:

2. If you travel to Vietnam not by air

If this is the case, you must obtain the visa via a local embassy of Vietnam. It can be Vietnam Embassy in Australia, Vietnam embassy in Malaysia or whichever convenient for you.

The procedure there may be more complicated. You at least must provide your original passport, hardcopy of application form (to be downloaded on website of the embassy), and visa fee. Sometime, more documents will be required. So, you are advised to contact them in advance for exact information to better prepare for your application.

We hope this information reaches you well.

Should you need any further information about Vietnam visa for Australians or for others, please feel free to let us know.

Kind regards,
