Comments + Q&A
VISA CONCERN This is Uyan from Turkey. I'm planning to come to Vietnam this April for an internship and very confused about whether Turkish citizens are eligible for a VOA to Vietnam or not because of the opposite information I've found on the internet and on your website. I would be grateful if you can clarify this problem for me. Thank you so much!
Dear Uyan,

Thanks so much for your email

We would like to confirm you that Turkish citizens can get visa on arrival to Vietnam. You will need a pre-approval letter to get it at Vietnam international airports (Noi Bai Hanoi, Tan Son Nhat Ho Chi Minh, Nha Trang and Danang)

We can make pre approval letter for you. The fee is US$ 130 and it takes 6 working days to get one month single visa issued. You need to send us

Your passport copy
Returned ticket (optional)
Hotel booking (Optional)

Should you need any further information, please let us know
Dear Admin - Vietnam visa on arrival from Turkey

Thank you so much for your clarification!

I will come to Vietnam for a 6 week internship so I need to apply for 3 month single entry visa. How much does it cost and how long does it take to get a pre-approval letter?
Because the internship I'm enrolling in is implemented by Aiesec Hanoi, and it's not a tour organization but a NPO so can I apply for a tourist visa? Do I need their invitation letter to support my visa application process?

And what documents do I need to prepare beforehand when I reach the airport? How much does it cost for stamped visa?

I am so sorry for asking a lot of questions. I am very grateful if you can help me with these concerns.

I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Best regards,
Dear Uyan

Thanks for your email.

At The Moment 02-03/2017,

For 3 month single entry for Turkish passport holder, it will be business visa and the fee is US$ 320/person, it takes 6 working days to get pre-approval letter

If Aiesec can guarantee for you and provide relevant documents for us to make letter, the visa fee is US$ 240/person

The visa stamping fee is US$ 25 at the airport

You will need to prepare 2 passport size photos, visa stamping fee in cash, pre approval letter and fill in entry and exit form as in the attachment

I have another question. If Aiesec provides relevant documents and we apply for a business visa is it guaranteed that you can get an approval letter? What if it is rejected? Do you refund $240? And this $240 does not include the stamping fee, right? How much is the stamping fee for a 3 month business visa?

Thank you for your time
Dear Uyan,

Thanks for your email.

We would like to confirm you that if AIESEC provides relevant documents to make 3 months, the visa will be issued. In case it is rejected, we will refund you 240$ you have paid. The fee of 240$ does not include the stamping fee at the airport (3 month single visa is US$ 25)

Best regards
Is it written on the contract or something that you'll refund the fee if rejected? Sorry for being skeptical but $240 is such a high fee for me, I don't want to risk it.
Dear Uyan

Thanks for your email

For us, reputation is more important than money so we will keep our word. If you want, we will make a contract with you or your organization so that you can believe us
Sorry for bothering you so much, but I have another question. My friend in Aiesec Hanoi also talked to the Immigration Commission, and we've got complicated responses from them. First they said they can issue a 1 month visa, then they said they can issue a 15 days visa. Though the person in the Immigration Commission my friend talked to on phone wasn't really sure about it (that surprises me as I don't understand who will know about the process for restricted countries if people in Immigration don't know.) Do you have additional information or special agreements with Immigration that will make the process easier and enable me to have a 3 month visa?

Thank you so much for your time
Dear Uyan

Thanks for your email

We have got your question. As you may know, there are many departments at Vietnam immigration department so your friend may not talk with the right person about this problem. And you are right, we have good relationship with officers at immigration department so we can make visa easier and can apply for three month visa for you

We confirm that if we can not make it, we will refund you all money you pay for this service
Thank you so much for your patience :) Can you please prepare a contract with Aiesec about refunding, and can you also inform us what documents are required so we can start wih the process?
Must I specify an airport? Do I have to book a flight for the application, because if possible I won't till I get a visa. And I'm not sure if I'll arrive at Ho Chi Minh or Hanoi. The date will be around March 11.
Dear Uyan

Can you send me your passport copy, date of arrival and the place you want to get visa stamped so that we can prepare documents and contract for you?
You do not need to book ticket but must make sure that you come to Vietnam after the registered date of arrival

You can arrive at any international airports in Vietnam so it will not be problem

Please confirm me the final date of arrival so that we can prepare documents. For contract you can see in the attachment your email.
Oh okay thanks. Please let me know if anything is needed.
I am a citizen of Turkey, but currently living in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. I would like to travel to Vietnam and as i understand I need a visa. Could you please let me know about the process fees when you process this visa application?
Dear Mr. Guner

Warmest Greetings from Vietnam Visa Online!

Could I take this opportunity to introduce myself as Jessica Lee, the team support of Vietnamvisaonline.net?

I am writing to you to confirm that we have received your visa application form
Turkey is listed as limited nationality when applying Vietnam visa. You can see the list of limited countries at: http://www.vietnamvisaonline.net/article/vietnam-visa-tips/vietnam-visa-on-arrival-for-africa-middle-east/

Because the rules cause the difficulty and more requirement so it takes time, effort and fee to make visa for Turkey passport holder.. This is also why the fee to make visa for you is more expensive than other unlimited countries like UK, Canada, Germany, America, etc. It costs US$ 150/person to make one month single entry

You also need to send us following documents

- Your scanned colour passport
- Your hotel booking, return flight ticket, and traveling schedule in Vietnam
