It’s the most straight-forward visa process I’ve ever done. Basically three steps, as of April 2017.
Step 1: Fill in your application form. You can click here for the e-portal.
Step 2: Give payment of $25.
Step 3: Check back after a few days.
That’s basically it! Out e-visas came through after only about two days. You will need to print the confirmation PDF that you get from the immigration service, and present it with your passport when you arrive in Vietnam.
Thanks, Vietnam! That was easy.
