This article is written to explain why visa on arrival (VOA) is widely used among foreign travelers.

Advantages of VOA which are recognized by millions of users:
Vietnam visa online

  • Convenience: The process of applying VOA can be done at anywhere via email with a computer, smart phone or tablet connected to the Internet and the applicants do not need to send off the passport or any other documents.
  • Time saving: Normally 2-3 working-days are required for visa processing. In urgent cases, you can get the visa result within 4-8 working-hours.
  • Simple and transparent procedure: There are 2 steps to get the visa. The first step is to apply online to get the visa letter. With this letter, the client will be allowed to get on board and fly to Vietnam. The second step is to get the visa stamp upon the arrival airport at Immigration Checking Point.

However, some drawbacks that make applicants reluctant using this type of visa such as:

  • It does not apply to all entry borders or all citizens, you have to apply visa at the Embassy with following cases:
  • + If you travel to Vietnam by land or sea since VOA is available for travel by air only;
  • + Some special countries that you should check carefully before applying.
  • The stamping process at the arrival airport can be slow. In the high season, usually from October to April, it might take one hour or even longer if the clients are stuck behind a large tour group.

Da Nang were founded by the Cham practicing Hindus most possibly 3000 years ago, serving as the capital city and center of the Hindu Champa Dynasty. Vietnamese invasion into the region in the 17th century significantly halted Cham development and during the Vietnam War, vast monuments and buildings were bombed. Given Danang was the first point of colonial invasion, many vestiges of French architecture are present in the historic buildings. The city has grown rapidly in recent years, and has a 2008 population estimated at 900,000. Until recently, this growth was mostly outward and infill, but now there are high-rises going up.

Traces of human settlement in Nha Trang date back to the Cham Empire, though in times of Vietnamese rule, there wasn’t much more than small fishing villages. The French recognized that this beautiful bay, with its islands and white sand beaches, made for a perfect bathing spot, and began the transformation into a resort town. American soldiers agreed, and Nha Trang became a favorite vacation stop during the war.
