- Best way for Bolivian Citizens to get visa for Vietnam without going to embassy : Apply for getting visa on arrival

Bolivian citizens are required to obtain Visa in order to travel to Vietnam. Usually, a foreign national can obtain Visa through two simple ways. He can either contact the Embassy of Vietnam in his country or apply for Visa on Arrival. Vietnam does not have an embassy in Bolivia, which makes the Visa application process through the embassy a little more complicated for the citizens of Bolivia. 

• Apply through the embassy

Since Vietnam does not have an embassy in Bolivia, citizens are required to contact embassies in neighboring countries or contact embassy officials of these embassies over the telephone or e-mail to enquire if the process can be facilitated over postal mail. If you decide to visit the embassy location in a neighboring country, you will have to bear travel and stay expenses. At the embassy, you will have to fill the Visa application form. This form will have to be submitted along with one recent passport size photograph, one self-addressed envelope and your original passport. Besides submitting these documents, you will also have to pay the Visa fees, which can be paid to the Embassy of Vietnam by way of money order or cashier’s cheque. 

The embassy will take at least five working days to process your documents. Once your documents are processed, you will be issued a fully stamped Visa. Although this process allows you to get hold of a fully stamped Visa before you leave for Vietnam, it is expensive and time consuming. 

In case you wish to apply for Visa through correspondence, you will have to send across all your documents through postal mail. In this case, you risk losing your original passport if your package is lost in transit or if it is misplaced. 

• Apply for Visa on Arrival

Visa on Arrival is the ideal way in which a Bolivian citizen can apply for Visa because it is easier and more convenient. To apply for Visa on Arrival, you will have to get in touch with a travel agent based in Vietnam. You will have to fill an online application form which will require details such your name, occupation, duration of stay, purpose of visit etc. When filling up the purpose of visit, you will have to choose from options such as business, tourist and transit. A business Visa comes with a validity of one month, three months and six months. A tourist Visa comes with a validity of one month and a transit Visa offers a validity of less than five days. 

Your online application will be processed in a couple of days, after which you will be issued a letter of approval. This letter of approval can be collected by your travel agent and have it forwarded to you. On reaching Vietnam, you will have to submit this document along with the Visa stamping fees at the Visa on Arrival counter of the airport you arrive in. 

It is to be noted that the Visa on Arrival is available only to those travelers who arrive in Vietnam by air. For those taking land routes, it is mandatory that they carry their documents with them while traveling. In case of a cruise ship, the cruise authorities can be contacted for more information on Visa on Arrival.
