For Canadian citizens, Visa On Arrival has been chosen to apply and enter Vietnam because of its functions. Depending on the kind of visa, Canadian passport holders will be accepted to stay in Vietnam for up to 3 months with single or multiple entry, no matter what your purpose is – business or tourism. Besides that, the way to apply for it is quite simple as below steps: 

There are 2 main steps you will be needing to do:

  • Get the approval letter. It will be used for boarding the airplane and getting the visa stamp on arrival.
  • Getting the visa stamp after arrival.
