You may wonder how long it takes to get your Vietnam visa done? Normally, you have two choices to get your Vietnam visa: Option 1 – apply by yourself at the Embassy/Consulate; and Option 2 – apply online (for both visa on arrival and visa code). Accordingly the processing time differs between those. The latter always takes less time. Details as follows:

Option 1: Apply for Vietnam visa at Vietnam Embassy in your current area on your own

You can get one by directly visiting the Embassy/Consulate and pick it up by yourself. Or, you may download it from the internet, fill it out and send by mail carrier with a stamped, self-addressed pre-paid return envelope to the Visa section – Vietnam Embassy/Consulate there.

Option 2: Apply for Vietnam visa online.

For both types – visa picked up at arrival airport (visa on arrival) and visa picked up at Embassy/Consulate (visa code), applicants can go online and get it via email after 1 or 2 days;
