Request visa to vietnam for Australia passport

this is Ul, I book quite frequently Visas at your company and I have a new request, where I would need you support.

I am currently in Vietnam with a 3 months tourist Visa. Now I will buy a company here and I read, that I could apply for a longterm business Visa.

Can you send me the requirements of documents, that you need and an information of what kind of Visa I can apply then?
Dear Mr. Ul,

Many thanks for your email

If you are the owner of that company (You have the name in business registration of company), you can apply for 3 year residence card in Vietnam and do not need visa

Or you can apply for one year visa, it is up to you

Can you send us your business registration so that we can consult you better ?
Thanks for the soon reply.

I am in the process of getting all documents and will forward them, as soon as they are available.

Best
Dear Mr. Ul,

Thanks and have a nice day

I hope you are well. Thanks again for helping with my 1-year business visa scare.

I need Vietnam visas for my 2 daughters. Their current visas expire on 24 May 2017. I plan to fly them to Kuala Lumpur on 20 May and return 22 May, with new visas on arrival of course :)

You mentioned in your emails below that you could help me with a good price for my family's visas. Some quick questions for you:

(1) Can you help with visa on arrival in Danang
(2) My two daughters need only 22 May to 19 July = 58 days (they travel to Australia on 19 July and my eldest daughter will get a new Australian passport there). Is it possible to get a 1 month single entry tourist visa (22-May to 22-June) and then extend it by 1 month here in Vietnam??
(3) Or is it only possible to get a 3-month multiple-entry tourist visa to cover 2 months?
Dear Mr. Peter

Thanks for your email

It is nice to hear that you daughters want to make Vietnam visa. For sure we can do that and we will offer you the best price

We want to answer your questions as below

(1) Can you help with visa on arrival in Danang >> Yes, for visa on arrival, they can get at one of four international airports in Vietnam included Hanoi, Danang, Nha Trang and Ho Chi Minh city

In case you want to make sure everything goes well and there is no problem (No need to wait, queue or being asked by custom officers) you can book fast track service at the airport then our staff can hel you there. You can read the details for this service at: - Fast Track service (if you use this service, the fee is US$ 15/person)

(2) My two daughters need only 22 May to 19 July = 58 days (they travel to Australia on 19 July and my eldest daughter will get a new Australian passport there). Is it possible to get a 1 month single entry tourist visa (22-May to 22-June) and then extend it by 1 month here in Vietnam??

As our experience, you should make 3 month single visa for them to save the costs. Visa extension is always more expensive than make a new visa on arrival. For three month single visa, you will pay 20$/person for letter of arrival and at the airport, you will pay 25$/person for visa stamping fee. So the total is US$ 45/person for 90 day visa while one month visa extension can be up to US$ 70 (Visa extension fee is subject to change and always expensive)

(3) Or is it only possible to get a 3-month multiple-entry tourist visa to cover 2 months?

If from 22nd May till 19th July they do not go out of Vietnam, you can make 3 month single tourist visa for them. If they leave and come back many times, you can make 3 month multiple tourist visa (US$ 35/person for approval letter fee and US$ 50/person for visa stamping fee)

Should you need any further information, do not hesitate to let us know
