Before you get on any airplane, however, you must get a Vietnam visa.
How to Get a Vietnam Visa Online
Since 1996, all U.S. citizens who visit Vietnam can pick up their visa at a Vietnam international airport. This is the easiest way of entry into the country, and requires you to get a visa approval letter before traveling. To use this method and obtain a Visa On Arrival, simply submit an online application to request an approval letter via email. It may take up to two days, so allow time to secure your visa before your travel date.
Once you have your letter, all you have to do is show it and your passport to the customs agents in Vietnam to get a stamp and entry visa. Visa On Arrival is an option for any American flying into Hanoi, Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh City or Nha Trang. Traveling to Vietnam by any other method requires you to get a visa from an embassy before leaving the United States.
Getting a Visa through a Vietnam Embassy
Although it is the more complicated and expensive option, when visiting Vietnam by bus or train from another country, you will need to get your visa from your nearest consulate. Before applying for a Vietnam visa (using either method), please make sure your passport has a minimum of six months of validity from your arrival date, as well as a page left for a stamp.
To get your visa from the Vietnam Embassy prior to your trip, submit your passport and application through the mail or in person. You will need to provide your full name, date of birth (DD/MM/YY), nationality, passport number, passport photos, and date of arrival on the application form, so make sure you have that information ready when you contact the consulate. Within a couple weeks of your request, you will be able to return to the embassy to pick up your passport and stamped visa.
