You can approach the Embassy of Vietnam in Saudi Arabia or apply for Visa on Arrival through online application. Both procedures are quite simple and you can easily apply for Visa through either of them. 

The procedure to apply for Visa through the Embassy is quite simple. You will to visit the Embassy personally to fill up the Visa application form and submit the required documents. The embassy officials will guide you about the required documents and the procedure to fill up the online application. If you a Saudi Arabian citizen and wish to apply for Visa to Vietnam you will have to hold a valid and original Saudi Arabian passport. Along with other documents such as a self-addressed envelope, the filled up application form and  a recent passport sized photograph, your passport will be submitted at the embassy. 

The embassy will take about five working days to process your documents. Once these documents are processed, you will be issued the Visa in the self addressed envelope you had submitted. You can then travel to Vietnam with this Visa easily. The major benefit of applying through the Embassy is that you can get the Visa in hand before you depart for Vietnam. However, there are certain drawbacks to this system too. One of the major problems that people who live in area that is far away from the embassy is travelling back and forth to the embassy location. 

If you are living in an area that is far flung, you may not have the time to travel back and forth several times. Filling up the application online requires you to visit the embassy multiple times. This may become a problem for those who are too tied up with work and hard pressed for time. Also, the original passport is submitted along with the other documents and forwarded ahead by postal mail. There are good chances that you lose your valuable documents through this procedure.

You can do so by contacting a reputed travel agent in Vietnam. The online application will require you to fill in personal details, purpose of visit, duration of stay etc. Once the online application is filled, you will be issued a letter of approval. This letter of approval can be collected by your travel agent and forwarded to you. You can submit this letter of approval at the Visa on Arrival counter of the Vietnamese airport you arrive in and collect your Visa. 

It is to be noted that the Visa on Arrival is extended to only those who arrive in Vietnam by air. If you are taking land route then it is mandatory that you carry all the necessary documents along with you. In case you are taking a cruise ship, you can contact the cruise ship authorities for information on Visa on Arrival.
