Is it possible to obtain a visa for Vietnam, while in Singapore? If so, does anyone know how long it takes and how much it costs? Reply to this

Hi Heather

Have you looked on the website for the Vietnamese embassy in Singapore? That's where you will get your visa from.

It's easy to get visa to Vietnam.
There're many travel agency which can help you to get a APPROVAL letter. You can use it to get a stamped at the Vietnamese embassy in Singapore. Reply to this

Ok Heather,

Be careful of what you may read around here! Well...the true and correct answer is the one of Kris and Kate.

It all depends of what you need, tourist or business visa.

For a tourist visa, it is VERY easy. Go to the embassy in the morning, bringing 2 pics and cash as well obviously as you passport.

You will have two choice...normal processing time...it does vary but should be around 4-5 working days. Or express...which could be a pick up on the same day and will keep you more.

For fees, they all depends on how long you stay in Vietnam. You DO NOT need the help of a travel agent to do all this. Specially if you can just take a metro/taxi ride to a vietnamese consulate.

Travel agents for visas are only very useful in my opinion if you are in a city without a consulate to where you plan to travel. Apply for Vietnam...but a lot of other countries also.

Hope this help,

Sometimes it's best just to get the visas ahead of time, but not always.

Everything depends on where you're going, for how long, and for what purposes. There are usually additional documents that you might need to carry to present to the airport for your visa. You probably don't want to lose them on your way down there, so maybe it's a good idea to get the visa ahead of time, especially if you're traveling to multiple places.

Here's great resource to help you get started through

At you'll find useful information on the types of visas, fees, embassy addresses and phone numbers, and much more.

You might want to directly contact the embassy/consulate in your region and get their direct opinion on the situation. I haven't heard of too many places offering visas upon arrival, with the exception of a few countries only.

Good luck and enjoy your trip.

When travelling by air, it is very convenient to get Vietnam Visa On Arrival, no time at the Embassy at all. I was recommended three agents, and I have tried the first one,
I felt the quality of the service is very profession, especially in my case, I entered Vietnam by air. I was advised that if people travel by land or sea, they have to apply online for visa code and then bring the code to the Embassy, or people can come directly to the Embassy (but maybe that way is more time-consuming.)
