3. Apply a Vietnam visa at Vietnamese Embassy or Consulate in your staying country.
This way is a little bit complicated because you have to go to Vietnam Embassy or Consulate in your staying country for visa application. You have to get line and wait for your turn at the Embassy or Consulate. And this will be a big problem if the Embassy or Consulate is quite far from your residence. If you want to get your visa stamp at the Embassy or Consulate you have to submit some required documents such as:
- Your passport with 06 months expiry at least
- An envelope with available postage stamp
- Hard copy of visa application form (downloaded at website of the embassy)

After submitting you have to wait at least 05 working days for the result sometime you still need to submit some more necessary document for the visa processing.
But this is not a problem if you have time and your residence is close to Vietnamese Embassy or Consulate. And we suggest you that you should contact Vietnamese Embassy or Consulate before going to.
