RE: Time for applying visa
Yes, you can get your visa at embassy or consulate of Vietnam directly in person. Procedure, time and price to get visa is varied from embassy to embassy, therefore you should contact them in person to know for this case.

We can tell you exactly procedure, time & price if you want to get visa on arrival but visa at embassy is out of our control

Tourist visa for Paul's question
Hi Paul,

Thanks for asking your question.
How Vietnam visa on arrival works ?
You simple choose the type of visa you want then submit your visa application form online, pay online for service fee --> wait 24 - 48 hours to get approval letter from Vietnam Immigration Dept., via email --> Print the approval letter to show for boarding & show to get visa on arrival at Vietnam airports (There is a "visa issuing office" or "landing visa office" located at international airports of Vietnam, in front of immigration line) --> Pay for stamp fee & get your passport with visa stamped.
It's very easy.
Feel free to ask us if you have any question or unclear issues.

Dear Sir/Madam,
