How to obtain a Vietnam visa for citizens of Timor–Leste?

For a national of Timor–Leste there is one of two ways one can choose for applying for a Vietnam visa:

1. Applying in person through a Vietnam embassy or consulate.

2. Applying online for a Vietnam visa on arrival through an agency. 

Currently the country of Timor–Leste does not have any Vietnam representative embassy or consular office within the country. So in order to apply for a Vietnam visa in person a Timor–Leste citizen needs to check with the neighboring countries for a nearby Vietnam embassy or consulate office. 

If applying for a Vietnam visa in person through a nearby Vietnam consulate in a neighboring poses to be highly inconvenient for you, you can also choose to apply for the visa via post. But we suggest that you check with the neighboring country well in advance to inquire if they allow visa application via post or not. 

One can also apply for a Vietnam visa online to obtain a visa on arrival that is considered to be the most convenient and hassle-free way of obtaining a Vietnam visa in countries without a Vietnam embassy. With this online application you obtain an approval letter from the immigration department of Vietnam and are then handed over your Vietnam visa on arrival at the Vietnam international airport (for those traveling by air). As for those who are not traveling by air, they can collect their visa for visiting Vietnam from the embassy or consulate that you nominate.
