How to Apply Vietnam Visa from Australia

Every citizen who holds Australian passport must have a valid visa to visit Vietnam. It is good news that the application for Vietnam visa for Australians has become much easier as there are two available ways to handle it now. One can either choose to apply for:

  • Vietnam visa on arrival

You apply online and get a pre-approval letter for your visa application in advance; then you will get the visa stamp at the arrival airport in Vietnam. Although visa on arrival provides a special advantage, especially to those who live far from Vietnam Embassy, it is applicable to those travelling to Vietnam by air only.

  • Or, Visa at Vietnam Embassy

In case you plan to enter Vietnam by land/ sea or you wish to obtain a fully stamped visa on your passport before departure, you are advised to contact the nearest Vietnam Embassy for your visa application. Currently, there are two addresses of the consulate and embassy: one in Canberra and one in Sydney.
