Just a quick heads up for obtaining a Vietnamese Visa (postal) from the Vietnamese Embassy in London, UK
Email address: email@example.com
I sent an email saying that I would like to apply for a standard 30-day, single entry visa for 2 persons & would they please forward me the relevant fee & postage information?
The present fee (April 2011) is £44 for a standard 30-day, single entry visa.
The return charge is £6/passport for 2 or 3 applications by Royal Mail Special Delivery (grey plastic envelope)
I applied for 2 visa’s therefore I paid £44 x 2 + £12 p&p + Royal Mail Special Delivery x 2 (grey plastic envelopes) @ approx £10. Total £110
My travel company quoted £165/£170 to go thru a 3rd party agent.
I did not price the VOA .
Go to the Vietnamese Embassy website www.vietnamembassy.org.uk/ & download Application Form F.
Complete the forms, glue/staple photographs to same, make cheque out for £100, put forms x 2, passports x 2, cheque & SAE (Royal Mail Special Delivery) into Royal Mail Special Delivery & post.
I posted mine on a Monday & received passports back 9 days later.
Hope this helps?
We are heading off at the end of June. Looking forward to a great holiday?Edited: 01 June 2011, 08:47
