Vietnam visa is on arrival for Pakistani passport if you have an approval letter which is issued by Vietnam Immigration. You can get this approval letter from any travel agency in Vietnam. when you have this visa approval letter then you can go to Vietnam by showing this approval letter to Airline staff and they’ll let you board the flight. on arrival at Vietnam Airport, you’ll get visa stamped in your passport. I’ll share the entire process on how to obtain visa approval letter and then get visa on arrival as I did this recently on Pakistani passport.
How to Apply for Approval Letter?
The first step towards Vietnam visa on arrival is to get approval letter from a well-known travel agency in Vietnam. normally, travel agents in Vietnam charge $120-$150 for an approval letter. actually, when you contact a travel agency in Vietnam, they’ll apply for your Approval Letter to Vietnam immigration. The immigration guys takes around 5 to 8 days to issue the approval letter.
I got the approval letter for $110 from a very good travel agency in Vietnam who helped me with straightforward process of approval letter and they also helped me with other information such as where to stay in Vietnam and which places to visit in Vietnam. it was indeed a great experience.
For your benefit, I’m sharing the contact information of that travel agency and the girl who arranged the approval letter for me. They charge $120 from Pakistani passport holders but if you give my reference (Abdul Wali) then they’ll give you $10 discount and will arrange an approval letter for you at $110 (fixed), so don’t try to negotiate the price because that’s the lowest price for Pakistani passport currently.

Requirements & Processing Time
Processing time for an Approval Letter for Vietnam visa is around 5 to 10 days. it depends on the workload of immigration department. I got my approval letter in 7 days but it may take less or more. but to be on the safer side, you should apply for approval letter before 15 days from the date of your travel plans to Vietnam.
Requirements for Vietnam approval letter are very basic. you need your passport’s scanned copy, date of arrival in Vietnam and airport name in Vietnam at which you’ll arrive. you will have to send this details to Vietnam agency and they’ll process your approval letter. after the approval letter is approved, you’ll receive it via email from Vietnam agency and they’ll guide you accordingly on what to do next. with this approval letter, you can straight go to Vietnam airport and get visa on arrival on Pakistani or Bangladeshi passport.
In order to proceed for approval letter, you first will have to pay the payment of $110 to Vietnam agency. they mostly receive payment via PayPal. but you can discuss with them if you don’t have PayPal. I can also help you by paying them via PayPal. do let me know if you guys need this help when you are dealing with Vietnam agency for approval letter.
Finally Visa on Arrival in Vietnam
Now when you have the approval letter in hands, just get into your flight and reach Vietnam airport which you mention in your approval letter. you must have two white background photos with you, $25 USD and visa application form already filled. these are the requirements when you want to get visa at the airport. I did the same and it took 10 minutes to get visa stamped into my passport by the Vietnam Immigration at the airport. it’s very easy and straightforward process.
And my friend, Vietnam is one of the magical places in Southeast Asia. it’s very beautiful and people are very friendly. I’ll share my Vietnam travel experience in Ho Chi Minh city in one of my upcoming blog posts. Happy Travel and for your convenience, I’m sharing the Vietnam Agency contact details again but don’t forget to give my reference (Abdul Wali) to get the best service. and don’t forget to watch the video in Urdu in which I explain the whole procedure again for you.
