Like several other nations, citizens of Timor–Leste also require a visa for entering and staying in Vietnam legally. But currently there are no Vietnam embassies or consulate offices located in Timor–Leste from where the people aspiring to visit Vietnam can apply for a visa. 

Hence, they can apply for a Vietnam visa in one of two ways:

1. Either they can choose to travel to a neighboring country which has the nearest Vietnam embassy to apply for a Vietnam visa in person. We recommend that you inquire beforehand about the visa applications procedures with the foreign embassy before arriving at the office via telephone or email. 

2. Or they can apply for a Vietnam visa on arrival through the internet via an agency that has close associations with the Vietnam Immigration Department. The VOA is handed over to the people on arrival at the Vietnam international airport. 

As can be very well understood, the prospect of applying for a Vietnam visa through a neighboring country sounds quite troublesome and inconvenient. Needless to mention there is the issue with wastage of time and the extra traveling and staying costs at the foreign country while waiting for the visa application procedure to be complete. 

But now with the advancement of modern technology one can apply for a Vietnam visa within 5 minutes from the comfort of their living room at anytime of the day through a computer or a smart phone device which has internet connectivity. It does not matter whether you apply at midnight or during a holiday, your application with go through unlike in case of the embassies where the application procedure only takes place during business hours on working days only.
