Questions and Answers

Visa on arrival,

My father in law currently living in Kenya would like to travel to Vietnam for tourist purposes.

He is a kenyan citizen and because of work commitments, he cannot travel to Tanzania (which is the nearest consulate to him) to collect his visa.

Therefore, I would like to confirm that if he applys online for the approval letter would it be certain he will get the visa in Vietnam on arrival?

(he will be travelling by air)

Some websites have indicated that it is best that kenyan citizens get visa from the nearest consulate before travelling to Vietnam.

Kindly adivse.

Also, could you please inform me on the total visa fees (including stamping fees) and all costs that he would incur for a multiple entry for a tourist


He intends to stay in Vietnam for 11 days and will be travelling to Hanoi, Ha long, Da Nang and Saigon.



Dear Aarti,

Warmest Greetings from Vietnam Visa Online!

Could I take this opportunity to introduce myself as Jessica Lee, the team support of

I am writing to you to confirm that we have received your visa inquiry 

We would like to confirm you that Kenya can get Vietnam visa on arrival without any problem. However Kenya is listed as limited nationality when applying Vietnam visa. You can see the list of limited countries at: so the rules cause the difficulty and more requirement so it takes time, effort and fee to make visa for Kenya passport holder..  This is also why the fee to make visa for you is more expensive than other unlimited countries like UK, Canada, Germany, America, etc.  It costs US$ 150/person to make one month single entry

You also need to send us following documents

- Your scanned colour passport 
 - Your hotel booking, return flight ticket, and traveling schedule in Vietnam

- It takes 7 working days to get approval visa.

We are looking forward to hearing from you
