Getting Vietnam visa for Belgians has been made much easier thanks to introduction of Vietnam visa on arrival. To get a full visa on arrival, Belgian passport holders will need to apply online for visa approval letter first and then get full visa stamped upon arrival at Vietnam airport.
This kind of Vietnam visa is considered very convenient since it requires no travel at all, so saving a lot of travel cost. Especially it is very simple as it can be completed in just 4 steps (3 online and 1 at arrival airport in Vietnam) below:
Step 1: Submit online application for Visa Approval Letter
In this step, Belgian applicants will need to access to https://booking.vietnam-visa.com/step1.html and fill out the form. Information to be provided includes:
- Full name

And then move to step 2, an online step as well.
Step 2: Pay for service fee
In this step, Belgian applicants will have time to check their information again and make payment of service fee via online portals (western union, paypal or onepay). The service fee for visa on arrival to Vietnam for Belgium citizens is around USD 21 per person. For more details on visa service can be found at Vietnam visa on arrival cost.
Step 3: Get visa approval letter via email
This is also an online step which requires applicants no travel at all.
Just wait for 1 or 2 working days at maximum, the applicants will get their visa approval letter – a legal document issued by Vietnam Immigration Department as official permission allowing its bearers to get on board to Vietnam.
Step 4: Get visa stamped upon arrival
Upon arrival at any of Vietnam International Airports (Hanoi, Da Nang or Hochiminh), travelers need to present original passport, visa approval letter, 2 passport sized photos, the Vietnamese visa application form and stamping fee to the Immigration officer to get visa stamped.
