      Post editing time   31/08/18

      Hi folks, please note we have reduced the time you can edit a post to 30 minutes. The ability to edit a post is there for you to fix up things like typos and grammar before the Grammar Police descend on you or to clarify a point you where making that, on seeing it posted, you think could be worded better. Unfortunately, the length of the previous editing window has resulted in several posts being totally changed or deleted which can result in the resulting replies, and indeed the whole thread, being totally nonsensical (over and above the usual that is ) and shows disrespect to the BMs that participated in the discussion. If you wish to clarify a post you made after the window has elapsed, you can easily quote the relevant part of your post and do so. If it is a serious issue, as per current practice, report your post, giving a justification as to why the change is needed, and the mods will deal with it. Just because you made an arse of yourself in the post is not a valid justification. Remember, pause and think before posting re adherence to the rules, legality and the "Nice to be Nice" ethos.

      Nude or not nude, that is the question   01/05/18

      An inordinate amount of the Moderators Teams time is spent on ensuring inappropriate images are removed from the forums where necessary as per Rule 29. On investigating why people have posted nude images in a non-advanced area, the vast majority of the feedback we've had has been "I didn't realise where I was".  Therefore, we have added a visual indicator to help you quickly identify whether you are posting in the advanced or the non-advanced area. If you are in an advanced area you will notice the page background is now a pale green - green for go.                               If you do not see the green background it is your responsibility to double check where you are on the site prior to posting any images/videos. This is doubly important for those using Tapatalk due to the fact we have no control over the Tapatalk theme (i.e. Tapatalk users will not see this visual indicator). Offenders will be sanctioned.

Vietnam visa in Patts?

Recommended Posts

dirtyslag

Hello all<br />I usually stop off in HCMC on my usual jaunts to Patts <br />But my next trip I thought I wouldn't bother<br />Now I'm not so sure...<br />I was wondering if I could get a visa from Patts if I change my mind?<br /><br />I know you can get one at SGN airport but I've heard it's a bit of hassle (queue ing ,paperwork etc)<br /><br />I usually buy one at the embassy here in the uk but I'm not 100% I'm going so a bit dubious about spending 50 quid on one<br /><br />Any help would be much appreciated fellas<br /><br />Cheers

To physically get one here I believe you have to go to the VN Embassy in Bangkok or an agent can do it for you.

 

If you're flying in it's easy enough to get one of those pre-authorised Visa letters online, but yes, you still have to stand in line with whoever else has one to get your actual stamp in your Passport eg. HERE

If you decide to visit Bangkok to obtain a visa then please note that last September I was quoted the following prices to process a visa at the Vietnam embassy.

 

4 days - 1800b

2 days - 2300b

1 day -  2700b

 

Its an easy process and the embassy is a 5 minute walk from Nana sky train - just take your passport and 2 passport photos.

I have done this from Pattaya.  2 options; either pay a local travel agent to have your passport couriered to Bangkok to have the visa stamp, or organise the letter for visa on arrival.  I have used both, and the delays at Saigon airport are not that extreme.  20 minutes at most.  I thought it was $25 USD per visaon arrival, but it may have increased.  I am not keen to have my passport go anywhere that is not under direct supervision.

 

There are companies that will offer a fast tracking service at Saigon airport.  Most of the letter companies will offer this service as a premium add on.  They will meet you at the gate and fast track the visa within the airport.  Not sure about the costs, but sitting and watching Vietnamese officials tell foriegners off is quite good entertainment whilst you wait. 

 

There is always a positive.  Your bag should be ready for you downstairs when you finally have your visa.

..................................  I thought it was $25 USD per visaon arrival, but it may have increased. .................................

 

According to the link I gave the price for the stamp on arrival at the airport is now $45 - someone else said it was $50.

 

The amount charged by the agencies who provide the letters varies from $10 upwards.

 

I used the service for a flight to Hanoi and my experience there was the same as yours at SGN, about 20 minutes, but I guess it varies according to how many others are doing it the same way at the time.

Vietnam Visa costs increased significantly in price last January 1st, so any pricing info before that would be out of date.
