By Vivian Lin

After receiving the approval letter printed, you have to take it along with you to Vietnam international airports in order to stamp your visa. This article will show you how to get your visa stamped on your passport when you arrive in two big Vietnam International airports: Noi Bai and Tan Son Nhat.


Generally, the procedures to stamp Vietnam visa is the same at all Vietnam international airports.


First of all, you need to prepare a file of documents encompassing: the visa approval letter, Vietnamese visa application form, 2 passport-sized photos, and original passport. As long as you land in Vietnam, submit all the documents for the Immigration officers.


Then to get your visa stamped onto your passport, you have to pay stamping fee in cash for Immigration office at Vietnam airport. For single entry visa (one month and three month single entry visa), it is $25USD and $50USD for multiple entry visa (one month and three month multiple entries). For less than six month multiple entries, it is $95USD/person and $135USD/person for 1 year visa.




  • In case you forget to prepare the application form and photos, you can collect them at the airport but the fee is a bit high: about 5USD for the form and another 5USD for 2 photos. Click here to download the Vietnamese visa application form.
