Vietnam Entry-Exit Form (now called NA1) is required for all foreigners when arriving in Vietnam. This form can be given to you at the airport or you download it online and complete it beforehand to save your time, especially when the queue is long. In Visa on Arrival case, we always send this document to your email with the approval letter and recommend you to fill it in advance. With this form filled together with visa approval and stamping fee, you will get the real visa stamped.
The entry-exit form at first was labelled as M3 with a single page. Then it changed to N1 with 2 pages. And as of October 2016, Immigration Dept. has issued a new form with code NA1, back to one page.
You can download the form here.
