Traveling is nowadays the most favorite activity that most people want to participate in. It has been recorded that the number of Singaporean coming to Vietnam is increasing because of 30-day free visa policy for Singaporeans. But please be noted that Singaporeans who want to stay more than 30 days or foreigners living in Singapore but not included in visa exemption list will be required to obtain a valid Vietnam visa. But where to get it? Is Vietnam consulate in Singapore the only place to apply Vietnam visa?
Vietnam still has not opened consulate office in Singapore therefore those who are in need of visa can apply for Vietnam Visa on arrival or at Vietnam Embassy in Singapore. It is highly recommended that applicants get Visa for Vietnam without going to consulate in Singapore or Embassy of Vietnam which can be called visa on arrival.

At the airport in Vietnam, you just need to show the Approval Letter, photos and pay for stamping fee to Immigration Officers so that you can enjoy your vacation in Vietnam without any worries. Vietnam also provides Visa-free access for all ASEAN nations including Singapore which has created many chances for travelers to visit Vietnam much easier.
