I Did Not Rush To The Embassy, Yet I Landed In Vietnam

My name is Akio Hashimoto, and I am from Nagoya, Japan. I am an individual who loves to travel to different countries and their cities, experience their culture and heritage, and learn the traditions. Traveling, exploring and discovering new places has always been my hobby, which I have been practicing for many years. After paying a visit to half of the cities around the world, the most important of them is the country of Vietnam, and there are many reasons I want to go to this country.

Vietnam is known for its extreme weather and in simple words, it means, when it’s hot it will be extremely hot and when it’s raining, it will feel like the ocean is pouring from the sky. However, through my recent research, I became very fascinated with the country, as it is the most unique and one-of-a-kind nation. This is because from Ho Chi Minh City to Sapa, Can Tho, and Hoi An, the topography of each of these cities will gradually change along with the custom, climate, and the language, respectively.

First-timers like me will be overwhelmed with the throngs of people in the tourist zone, along with the unbreakable barrier of traffic. Therefore, I wish to experience a trip around a wooden boat in the Mekong River and travel back to a time when the existence of modernity was just a myth. I wish to make my stay and traveling in Vietnam to be a memorable one so that I can get back again to experience the nation’s beauty and history.

Why did I choose Vietnam E-Visa rather than going to the Vietnamese Embassy?

While I was going through the article on the places, I wanted to visit in Vietnam; I was very much in a big soup when I realized I have to go through the complexed procedure to obtain a Visa. The situation made become hesitant of my plans but thankfully my aunt saved me at the last minute, by telling me about E-Visa and its procedures. To support my answer well, I have a list of points that will give everyone an idea of why I chose E-Visa in the first place.

  • The procedure for applying for an E-Visa is very much simple and convenient. I was not required to provide any documents to the Vietnamese Embassy or the Consulate in the process. The entire process is performed through the online platform and it can be done from anywhere and at any time, which served as an advantage for me. With the help of this E-Visa, it granted me permission to access the country from all the seaports, international airports, and border checkpoints. All I had to do was to show my E-Visa documentation to the staff at the checkpoint and I was good to go.
  • The E-Visa also became my lifesaver as it saved me from spending too much cash. I did not have to pay a visit to the Vietnamese Embassy in the process. The application filling took around 3-4 minutes for me to finish. There was no need for me to wait in the queue at the airport, just to get the stamp for my Visa, and hence I received my E-Visa in advance. Overall, applying for the E-Visa online saved me an ample amount of time, and allowed me to prepare for my Vietnam travel in the process.
  • One of the best things I came to like about E-Visa was that there was no extra spending of money involved as the application fee is ¥2700 (Japanese Yen), which is $25 in the US currency. There will be nothing paid in extra, but the application fee.
  • Once the payment and submission of the application form was completed, I received my E-Visa through my email within 3 working days. This option for obtaining a Visa has favored me very much and helped me to save a good amount of cash in the process.

The application process of E-Visa

The application and the documents that were required in the process are provided below.

The E-Visa requirements:

  • I was requested to provide a valid email for receiving my E-Visa and an active and valid credit/debit card for the payment.
  • The passport that carried the validation of six months was provided by me.
  • I also provided two recently taken standard-sized passport photos. (Photo Guide)
  • I filled out the entire application form for the E-Visa with accurate details. I had to be extra careful since one small mistake would have led to a rejection.

The E-Visa applying method:

  • Since the E-Visa procedure is done online, I had to fill out the entire application form by putting all my details.
  • I uploaded my passport photo along with the original copy of my passport.
  • Once my submission and payment were cleared, I received my E-visa through the email address that I provided.

You now know much beneficial it is having an E-Visa when you are a traveler and want to pay a visit to the beautiful country of Vietnam, and experience all the things that this country has to offer.


Professionally, my corporate world knows me better as Rishi Malhotra from Pune, India. And if you ask me why I’ve been here writing, I am going to share my visa on arrival experience to travel to Vietnam in this post.

The Application for entry and exit Visa form is an important document that you have to submit to the Vietnam Immigration Officer when entering Vietnam. Since March 1, 2015, the old entry and exit form has been replaced by a new one which was renamed into Vietnamese visa application form.

One of the most important requirements for travelers to be allowed to enter Vietnam is getting a valid Vietnam visa. In order to get Vietnam visa, you can easily make a Vietnam visa application by contacting a travel agent who can help you to arrange a valid visa for you.

Whether you plan to visit Vietnam for business or pleasure, it is important to understand the entry requirements for the country. A trip to Vietnam can be a once in a lifetime experience, but a problem with your passport or Visa could easily ruin the trip.

For those planning for a Vietnam visit but worried about visa issues seem to have the ideal solution- has assured to provide the eager Vietnam travelers with easiest, cheapest, fastest as well as a highly credible Vietnam visa service.

If you are planning a trip to Vietnam in the new year, it is important to be aware of some new fees that will be taking effect soon. Starting in early January of 2013, the Visa stamping fee charged upon arrival in Vietnam will be going up.
