Comments + Q&A
This information is so great, I am going to travel from Germany to China then go to Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia
China Governement is a little out of date in using visa on arrival and it cause inconvenience and take much time of tourists when they want to travel many countries,

We visited Shanghai, China in 2005, then I wanted to travel to Vietnam. It took 2 days to go to Vietnam embassy here to make visa. If China Governement had allowed visa on arrival, it would have not took so much time and effort
in 2005, I missed the flight because of making visa on arrival. If China Governement had applied this faster, it would have been saving money and time for clients
Our family missed the flight because of that China's regulation. Now clients can save a lot of time and effort because they do not need to go to Vietnam embassy in China to get visa stamped.
It is not clear. Can a CHINESE CITIZEN, using a CHINESE PASSPORT, fly from Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport to Hanoi Noi Bai International Airport using visa-on-arrival?

She applied the visa at Embassy of China, however, her resident registration is in Phu Tho, the north of Vietnam, and the visa employee told her that she had to apply visa in Embassy of China located in Hanoi. So I have 2 questions: First, Can she apply for Visa at Chinese Embassy in Ho Chi Minh City? What’s necessary documents for visa application. Second, If she apply for visa in Ha Noi embassy, One of the necessary documents for her visa is Company Authorized Letter (stamped by Office in Ha Noi), However, We don’t have office in Ha Noi, just in Ho Chi Minh city, so what should she do? Can our company in Ho Chi Minh city sealed for her. Thank you so much and hope to receive email from you soon. Trân trọng / Best regards
