After payment, your application will be under process and you may receive the approval code within 2 working days or less via email. This kind of document will enable you to pick up Vietnam visa at Vietnam Embassy once time instead of multiple times as usual. Remember that stamp fee is varied from Embassy to Embassy
Note: The address of Vietnam Embassy where you expect to get visa stamped needs to be provided exactly. Otherwise, the Vietnam visa approval code may not be accepted.
Option 3: Get Vietnam visa on arrival
For those who are air-travelers from China mainland, you cannot apply for Vietnam visa on arrival because Chinese immigration officers at Chinese airport will deny visa approval letter as a legit document to pass the customs. As a consequence, all Chinese passport holders who wish to fly from China mainland need to get Vietnam visa at Vietnam Embassy prior to their departure.

Chinese passport holders still can get Vietnam visa on arrival if you depart from a third country like Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, etc. In such this case, what you need to do is to fill out our online application form at http://www.vietnamvisaonentry.com/apply-online/, pay the service fee through one of our payment options and receive the approval letter within 2 working days or less via email. After all, you only need to bring this approval letter + original passport + 2 photos + stamping fee to obtain Vietnam visa at one of 3 international airports in Vietnam.
