Vietnam E-Visa is one of visa types issued to foreigners by Vietnamese Immigration Department via electronic system. All of the paperwork is conducted online through a travel or visa agent. You will complete the registration procedures, pay the E-Visa fee and receive the E-Visa online, then you will not need to pay any extra fee when you arrive at the airport in Vietnam. After landing at one of the four Vietnam international airports (Hanoi’s Noi Bai, Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat, Da Nang and Nha Trang), travelers are supposed to bring all of the required documents (Original passport and Vietnam E-Visa) to getting your visa stamped on passport.

In the previous article, we have provided you a step-by-step guide at NoiBai Airport (Hanoi). Continuing with our series on “How to save time entering Vietnam by E-Visa at Vietnam airports”, today let’s take a look at Tan Son Nhat Airport (Ho Chi Minh City).
Hereunder is the map of Tan Son Nhat airport, in which the red lines indicate the directions you should follow to do arrival procedures. Tan Son Nhat International Terminal has three levels.The first two levels for arrival and the third level for departure.
ARRIVAL LEVEL (Floor 1 and Floor 2)

On entering the arrival terminal after landing, you are on Floor 2 of Tan Son Nhat airport. Immigration procedures will be carried out in this level.

(1)   Find the Vietnam E-Visa counter: Stepping into the immigration hall, look to your left. The counter should be at the far end of the hall.
(2)   At Vietnam E-Visa counter, submit passport and print-out of Vietnam E-Visa. Then wait for the officer to process your documents, this may take a while. 
(3)   When you hear your name being called out and the officer is holding your passport photo up, it means your Vietnam visa is ready.
(4)   The officer will then return your passport (with Vietnam visa stamped on it) and give you your E-Visa back.
(5)   With the Vietnam visa, go to Immigration control
(6)   Then, proceed to Floor 1 where Baggage reclaim and Customs are located.

It usually takes you 15 to 30 minutes for this whole process. However, if you find yourself behind a large group of people on a tour, it might take longer than that. But still, Vietnam E-Visa is much cheaper and more convenient than Vietnam Embassy, Consulate visa, so a few minutes of waiting would be alright.
