We started the process of getting our Vietnam visas online but had to finish it when we landed. A group of at least twenty tourists were sitting on chairs in front of the visa window looking anxious; hmmm this may take some time.
We turned over all our paperwork, passports, and multiple extra passport photos and sat down with the crowd to wait. Oddly, enough you had to pay for the visa with American dollars, not local dong. We had plenty but several people were scrambling for cash as the money exchange was on the other side of customs but you needed a visa to to get through!
As always, Helen had everything we needed; It only took a half hour and we were on our way.
