Canadian travelers to Vietnam will be able to use the e-Visa in various ports of entry in the country. Unlike the visa on arrival that you can only use at Vietnam airports, the e-Visa can also be used in some land borders and seaports.

As mentioned, you’ll be asked to pay for the e-visa processing fees when you apply online. You can pay with your debit or credit card.
