A rising star among the Orient’s travel destinations, Vietnam is not to be overlooked when seeking authentic experiences in Southeast Asia. Its cities shine bright, foundations of gleaming skyscrapers adjoining those of markets, museums and Buddhist pagodas. The rural villages, with their rice paddies set upon perfectly sculpted hillside terraces, overlook verdant cultivated lowlands and their slowly winding rivers. Limestone karst pillars are scattered through these plains just as they are through the bays of the sinuous coastline, making for surreal landscapes ideal for exploring.
If you're American, visa arrangements are an essential part of planning a Vietnam tour. In fact, airlines will ask to see a physical visa or a Visa on Arrival approval letter for a before admitting passengers on flights to Vietnam. Fortunately, thanks to recent updates implemented by the Vietnam Immigration Department, the visa application process has been streamlined for tourists. It's now easier than ever to get to the enchanting islands of Ha Long Bay, undulating terraces of Sapa, and vibrant floating markets of the Mekong Delta!
We get this question a lot. Visas are often an overlooked piece in the travel puzzle.
