The open-door policy for Vietnam visa
In the past, if you wanted to enter Vietnam for any reason such as: travel, business or even meeting relatives, the process to obtain the Visa was difficult and time consuming. You had to go directly to the Embassy or Consulate of Vietnam in your country in order to apply for a Visa. This procedure required: your passport that should be valid for 6 months, your visa application forms and some of your other documents that were requested by the Embassy or Consulate of Vietnam in your country.
After the completion of your necessary documents to make the visa, you had to wait for 07 to 10 working days in order to get your visa. The fee to make it depended on the country you planned to go (For example: the fee of the Embassy of Vietnam in Bangkok, Thai Land was about 50 usd. In Washington, America it was about 85 usd and you still had to pay more for a stamping fee in order to get the actual visa which would be placed on your passport, this amounted to 45 usd which could go up-to 95 usd depending on the visa you plan to have.
This process is quite difficult and time consuming, if you are not fully prepared with the necessary documents as they have inquired, the application would not be issued and must be remade.
Currently with the open-door policy, which was established to promote the image of Vietnam to international visitors, Our Vietnam Government now has better measures in order to create a more favorable condition for foreigners to visit and work in Vietnam. With Vietnam Visa service, you do not need to waste time in the Embassy and you do not need to even consider the complex paperwork and fee which makes getting a visa is much cheaper and easier.
