Vietnam visa questions

Vietnam Visa for Canadian traveling from Hong Kong


We are planning to come to Vietnam & I am wondering if we can get a VISA on Arrival?

We are Canadian & flying into Hong Kong, after a few days in HK  we want to fly to Hanoi.

It states as along as we are Canadian & are arriving by Air we can obtain a Visa on Arrival.

However we are stopping in Hong KONG first?

Will this matter?

Or should we get a visa in Canada first?

Thank you for your time !


Dear Barb,

Thank you so much for your question!

Please be confirmed that you absolutely can apply for  Vietnam visa online and then receive the visa approval letter. With the visa approval letter, you can get on plane from Hongkong and get visa stamped on passport at Vietnam airport.

This kind of visa is available for all Canadian passport holders traveling to Vietnam by air, regardless of their departure airports.

To apply, please fill out the application form at the link:

After receiving your information, we will process and send the visa approval letter within 2 working days (normal service).

Should you need any further information, please feel free to let us know.

Have a nice day and best regards.
