In order to gain entry into Vietnam, it is mandatory for most foreign nationals to obtain a Visa. This is true for Pakistani citizens too.
Obtaining a Visa is a simple procedure and you have two options to choose from. You can either apply through the embassy or apply online for your Visa. Vietnam has its diplomatic missions and;embassies in about 70 countries in the world, including Pakistan. Any Pakistani citizen who wishes to visit Vietnam;for business, tourism or transit purposes can obtain a Visa by visiting the Vietnam Embassy situated in Islamabad.
It is for this reason that most people opt for the Visa on Arrival scheme. In this scheme, you can apply for Visa online;from any location by filling up the application form on the Internet. You will need the help of a travel agent based in Vietnam for online Visa application. You will have to key in your details and wait for the approval letter. And you can submit this approval letter at the counter for Visa on Arrival at any of the Vietnamese airports and collect your Visa.
Applying through the embassy is a pretty simple process. All you need to do is get in touch with the officials at the embassy. You will have to submit your original passport, recent;photographs, and a self-addressed envelope to receive the Visa document. You will be asked to fill up a form for the Visa. While filling up, select English as your language and mention the place;of submission and collection of Visa as Vietnam. Fill in all your details accurately, fix your photographs on the form and submit it along with all other documents.
