How to get Vietnam visa from Canada?

By Unknown  |  10:47 PM

Canada is not in the list of Vietnam visa exemption; therefore, every Canadian is required a valid visa to enter Vietnam. From Canada, you can get a visa to Vietnam by two following options:

Option 1: Get Vietnam Entry Visa at Vietnam Embassy in Canada:

You can apply for Visa to Vietnam at Vietnam Embassy/Consulate in Canada:
  • Embassy of Vietnam in Ottawa, Canada
  • Address: 470 Wilbrod Street, Ottawa, Ontario, K1N 6M8, CANADA
  • Phone: (1613) 236 0772
  • Fax: (1613) 236 2704
  • Email:,,
  • Office hours: Office hours: Monday to Friday: Morning: 9.30 a.m - 11.30 a.m Afternoon: 13.30 p.m - 16.00 p.m

However, it may take you 2-5 working days to get Vietnam Visa at Vietnam Embassy in Canada.

Option 2: Get Vietnam Visa on Arrival:

Visa on arrival – the visa picked up at arrival airport – is offered to all of those who are the Canadian passport holders. This kind of method is created to make the Canadian trip to Vietnam simpler and more economical. It is applicable for those travelling by air to Vietnam.

Visa on arrival is a special advantage for those who live far from the Vietnam Embassy/Consulate in Canada. The applicants neither have to go to the Embassy nor have to send out the passport. By using this way of getting Vietnam Visa, a Canadian only needs at least 2 days for normal processing and 1 day for urgent processing (or only 4 working hours for super urgent service – see Super Urgent Service) to get a pre-approval letter issued by Vietnam Immigration Department which is an official permission of getting visa upon arrival.
