The method to acquire a visa to visit Vietnam now is simple when there are two alternatives for Scottish citizens to select and apply.

Vietnam government officially introduced a new type of visa called Vietnam Visa On Arrival (VOA) for inhabitants from over 160 nations in 2000, including Scotland to travel to Vietnam by air only. VOA is basically a visa submit on the Internet via a travel agency (eg: greenvisa agency) and then get visa stamped onto their passport directly at the arrival airport in Vietnam. The existence of VOA is an ideal solution for active individuals who want to avoid wasting time at the Embassy together with its tedious processes. Nevertheless, people who want to get Vietnam visa need to fulfill essential requirements of the VOA if they want to prevent any unforeseen problem from happening throughout the procedure for getting a Vietnam visa.

• Owning a 6-month validity passport from the date applicants start to travel.
• VOA is applicable for traveling by plane only, and there are only four airports in Vietnam approve to handle this new visa type at present.

The total number of visitors who prefer to submit Vietnam visa on arrival is raising due to its versatility and convenience. Completing an application form with online transaction and waiting around two business days to obtain an Approval Letter, Scottish residents can get their Vietnam visa stamped at Vietnam international airport with ease. On the contrary, issues are sometimes found by visitors if they cannot meet some standard requirements relating to the documents. The Immigration officers will decline the visa of visitors if it contains information that is unmatched with what on their original passport. Travelers can discover the name of other people they will have never recognized before on their Approval Letter. Also, as a result of a huge quantity of applicants, Scots sometimes must get in line at the airport to obtain their passport with Vietnam visa stamp on it.

Although there are many advantages of Vietnam visa on arrival which tourists can reap, a lot of people now still want to apply for a visa at the Vietnam Embassy to avoid unexpected issues at the airport. For this reason, Scottish residents need to come to the Embassy of Vietnam directly to request and submit their application. In some circumstances, people have to drive to the embassy more than once to handle the problems that could happen throughout the whole process. The main disadvantage of this method appears to be its sophisticated procedure and long-time process. Getting visa at the Vietnam embassy is different from using VOA which offers urgent and super urgent services for those wanting to acquire a visa only for 1 day or 4 hours, applicants certainly need to wait for 5 business days to regain their passport along with a Vietnam visa.
