Ways to apply for visa

If you are citizen of some other country residing in Mauritania at present then you has two possible ways to apply for a Vietnam visa. 

Visa on arrival

This is the most popular way of applying for a Vietnam visa at a much lower cost. This process is also regarded as the special benefit given to the people who stays far away from the Vietnam embassy and refuses to send their passport by post or does not have a Vietnam embassy in their country. the issuing unit of this type of passport is the Vietnam Immigration Department. the processing time needed is 1-2 working days and there is no need to send you passport. 

Vietnam visa from the Vietnam Embassy

This is the most traditional way of applying for visa and was in vogue when the visa on arrival process was not active. Unfortunately there is no Vietnam embassy in Mauritania. If you still want to get your visa in this way then you have to search for the nearest embassy in any of the neighboring countries. In such cases the visa issuing unit is no doubt the Vietnam embassy and the time for processing needed is 4-5 business days. you need to show and submit your valid passport to the Embassy along with your visa application.  

In case you are applying for Vietnam visa in the Vietnam embassy, make sure that your passport is having a validity of 6 months and also has some blank pages. the other way, i.e. the Vietnam visa on arrival is applicable only for the people who are travelling to Vietnam by air.
