What Benefits Can you Get from Choosing the Vietnam e-Visa?

There are several other types of Vietnam visa that a visitor can apply for.  If you prefer the traditional method of visiting a Vietnam embassy and get a visa stamped in your passport, you can go ahead and do so. It’s also possible to get the Visa on Arrival option. With the type of visa on arrival, you’ll have to apply for your visa upon arrival at the airport.
