If you are planning to visit Vietnam from Singapore and need a Vietnam visa, and visa on arrival is available for your nationality, please keep in mind these 5 tips to ensure you have to pay as little as possible for your visa on arrival to Vietnam.
Tip 1: Making sure that you are traveling to Vietnam by air
As visa on arrival supports those who travel to Vietnam by air only, so please don’t apply for this kind of visa for entering the country by land or sea. Otherwise, you shall need to apply for a new visa via embassy or be refused from entry to Vietnam. And of course, the service fee charged by the online travel agent shall not be refunded.
Tip 2: Applying for Vietnam visa on arrival as soon as possible
As recommended by Vietnamvisa.sg, you should submit the online application for visa approval letter right after you decide your travel plan in Vietnam. As if you submit your online application a little bit late (1 day or a few hours prior to their flight) (except for unexpected events), a higher fee may be charged or even all services you reserved will be cancelled. It is really a waste of money that can be easily avoided.
Tip 3: Avoiding providing wrong information
You should notice that once the visa approval letter is issued by the Vietnam Immigration Department, no amendment can be made. And in case the visa approval letter contains any wrong information due to your fault, you will be charged to apply for a new visa approval letter.
Understanding this is a common issue that many applicants encounter, Vietnamvisa.sg has developed an online booking system in which you – as an applicant can check your information again before submitting application, and you even check it again in a confirmation sent to you when it starts processing your application. This strict procedure applied by Vietnamvisa.sg has significantly eliminated possibility of wrong information provided by the applicants.
Tip 4: Determining good arrival date
When applying for Vietnam visa on arrival, you can provide a planned arrival date. But you should keep in mind that you can enter Vietnam later then arrival date you provide in the application, but an earlier arrival is not allowed. So, you should provide an arrival date as exact as possible to avoid any possibility of applying for new visa approval letter due to earlier arrival.
Tip 5: Determining good type of visa
In case you decide that you will leave Vietnam without coming back within a certain period of time, a single entry visa works for you. But in case your itinerary has not been fixed yet, and you are not sure whether you leave Vietnam and then come back within a certain period of time, applying for a multiple entry visa seems to be a better choice.
