It is an alternative legitimate way of getting visa to Vietnam for international travelers including the Indians. The facility started from 2007 as a positive move to stimulate Vietnamese tourism industry. However, only people traveling by air are eligible to apply for visa on arrival. It doesn’t work for overland crossing.

• Original passport: has at least 6 months validity remaining. If there is no blank pages left, the customs officer will give you a loose-leaf visa
• Completed entry-exit form (we provide it along with the visa approval. You are also able to download it here)

Therefore, if you hate wasting time on queuing, you should use stamping assistance service ($22 service fee). This helps you save a lot of time and energy as well.
