1 year Vietnam visa

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us. Most people who live in or visit Cambodia have also checked out nearby countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, and you can get to most of these countries by traveling overland, so put any travel plans, reviews or questions here. Discussions about dirt bike trails in here as well.

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!

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.
