Hi Anspinc,
Im a little confused by your question ,but when we went last year ,this we found to be very easy .
Apply for Vietnam visa on arrival - 100% online application: instead of coming to the Embassy as before to get Vietnam visa, you just stay at home, click apply Vietnam visa online to make visa application, make online payment, receive the visa pre-approved letter online, fly to Vietnam and get their Vietnam visa stamped at arrival airport.You pay the visa fee on arrival in US dollars.
Hope this helps

Any advice or suggestions?

Many thanks.
If you email them they'll give you full instructions. consular@vietnamembassy.org.uk

my recommendation is the same with Pat 36059, you can apply Vietnam visa on arrival and get approval letter, after that you get your visa at arrival airport

Much easier to get visa on arrival. Vietnam Visa Company is the one I use but there are plenty online. Don't pay for the "extra" service... it is just a guy who meets you at the visa desk and takes longer to fill out your form for you than you would yourself.

Just go for the online thing - for example http://www.vietnamvisacorp.com/ - there are loads more. If you have an Irish passport, you will have no problem this way.

Heading to Hanoi for New years and trying to decide on VOA or loose leaf. VOA is half the price but worried about the stories of long queues.... Will the wait be long?

The wait is unpredictable. I arrived in Hanoi early August and was waiting for 90 minutes. My friend arrived at the same time the next day and got through in 20. New Year will be busy. In future I'll organise the visa first

Is there a big price difference in the visa on arrival or loose leaf from UK embassy?
We got them through the embassy, its a very easy process and all through email. Straight through when we landed in Hanoi. I did notice a huge queue for visas when we arrived.

Roughly €80 versus €40, not worth 90mins wait to me though!

Hi,

I just applied for and received the loose leaf visa. For proof of payment, I made a PDF of the payment screenshot from my online banking. Was accepted no problem. It was the full summary screen for the payment showing amount and recipient bank details and address.

Hi All

Thinking of traveling to Hanoi late January and looking at the Visa.

Would I be better going for the Embassy one or the one on arrival

This is the company I was thinking of using ?

After all that hassle there is a postal strike in the UK so I will not have my loose leaf Visa on time so I am gonna have to apply for VOA.

What company do ye recommend? I travel on the 29th Dec....
