Get Vietnam Tourist Visas in Advance
The Vietnamese tourist visa allows you to travel in Vietnam as a tourist for up to 30 days. The visa is required for most foreigners wishing to visit Vietnam. You can apply for a visa to Vietnam no earlier than 6 month prior to date of departure.
Your Vietnam visa will initially be valid for one month, but it can be extended by an extra month if required. The Vietnam Tourist Visa does not permit you to work in Vietnam and you must return to your country of residence when the visa expires.
We do not recommend embarking on any trips without a visa or relying on getting a visa on arrival.

Just a quick email to say thank you so much to Visafirst and Hanna in the London office for your help with my Chinese visa. Hanna was a star and kept me up to date all the time. I had already booked my trip to the States. I hoped I'd have my passport and Chinese Visa back in time (as I was off to China the following week) and thanks to Hanna I did. She called me Friday to let me know my Visa should be ready Monday AM and it was. I received my passport and went straight to the airport and all was good, then off to China next week. Great job and thanks again guys for such an efficient service.
Hi Maria, How are you? I never got a chance to say thank you for all the work you did for me in getting my residency. I'd be delighted to recommend you to anybody looking to get their residency.
