Dedicated Visa Agent (VN Air Travel).   In case your country is not Visa Exempt and cannot apply for an eVisa through the National Web Portal on Immigration then we suggest that you try applying through VN Air Travel. This is a subsidiary of the company that operates Ho Chi Minh International Airport and has a visa service counter located inside Ho Chi Minh International Airport to provide visa assistance on arrival.  They are a trusted agent and have serviced WCA related conferences in the past.  Note that you must contact them in advance so that they can prepare the required documents and bill you for their services otherwise they cannot assist you.

Please send email to info.visaonarrival@gmail.com (Attention: Mr. Hao and Ms. Linda) for assistance

If you cannot apply for a visa through one of the above means then you will need to apply for a visa directly through a Vietnam Embassy nearest you.
