There are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, such as Halong Bay and the town of Hoi An, to get lost in and explore. If you like bigger places, head to Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City, two cities that never sleep. Here you will find an abundance of shopping places, good restaurants, hole-in-a-wall places to eat at that offers delicious cuisine, markets, museums and plenty of sights. There is also something for the ones that loves beaches – head to one of many beaches in the country and lay down, soak in some Vitamin C and feel refreshed. The beach of Nha Trang has especially become popular in the past years, but there’s also smaller, more private ones, like in Phu Quoc island in the south.

One of the options is to apply for a visa at the Vietnamese Consulate or Vietnamese Embassy in Tunisia. If you choose to go this way, you have to bring your passport and any relevant documents to the consulate or embassy. If you live far away from the Embassy or Consulate, it might be a bit inconvenient for you. Sometimes the progress of your application will take a longer time as well, especially if there are important documents that are missing.

2. Visa on Arrival – Apply online for pre-approval then pick up visa on arrival at the airport of Vietnam
