try and get into Cambodia , Laos or Burma without a visa, no different for Vietnam.
people who go to cambodia do it all the time - and wait till they get to the airport and do not have to have one prior though in fact I did apply for the on line one but people say it's better to wait and do it at the airport as easier to extend the kind you get by NOT doing the tourist prior on line but getting a regular one at the airport on entry. So just what do you think Laos or Burma is going to do if you don't have one. Turn away a Caucasian. Come on.

If there's ever a case for turning away a Caucasian, you're it!
Did you previously mention you were from Florida?

Vietnam is NOT Cambodia. Considering your country flattened the places a few years ago, your geography is pretty weak...

I gave in and paid the $10 for approval letter. If it works and I get entry will have to pay some ungodly additional amount for the visa on arrival I understand. I just wish I had looked into this requirement etc. and large cost before i paid for the ticket.

I fly into Vietnam a few times a month and this is just not how it works. SIX countries have visa exemption, ASEAN citizens do not need a visa, the USA is not one of them....

I am also beginning to think that you are a troll.
