Is Visa on Arrival legitimated? Yes. Visa on Arrival is legitimated by the Visa Vietnam Department which comes under the Vietnam Government. Visa on Arrival is a much more convenient process and it is being preferred by most travellers these days. Usually, there are two methods by which a foreign citizen can obtain Visa. He can either contact the Embassy of Vietnam in his country or apply for Visa on Arrival. The embassy method is long, time taking and expensive. 

In order to apply for Visa through the embassy, you will have to personally visit the embassy. This can be a problem for those who reside in areas far away from the embassy location. At the embassy, you will be required to fill the Visa application form. Along with the form, you will have to submit one recent passport sized photograph, one self-addressed envelope and your original passport. Your passport must have a validity of at least six months and a few blank pages for stamping purposes. 

The embassy takes at least five working days to process all documents. Once the documents are processed, you will be issued a fully stamped Visa. Although this process allows you to get a fully stamped Visa in your hands before leaving for Vietnam, it still has not found much takers. This is because of the time, money and energy that needs to be invested. 

The embassy method requires the applicant to visit the embassy several times before the process is completed. Also, it is not suitable for those who need the Visa urgently. Moreover, the documents you submit will be forwarded ahead via postal mail, which means you could lose your documents if your package is misplaced or lost in transit. 

It is because of all these reasons that more and more people now prefer Visa on Arrival. Visa on Arrival is faster and more convenient.
