In order to get a Vietnam visa, Kenyan should pay two types of fee: the service fee and the stamping fee.


Service fee: The service fee is for visa approval letter processing.
Stamping fee: The stamping fee is paid in cash to the Vietnam Immigration Officer at the arrival airport to get the visa stamp. Credit cards are not accepted. If applicants have booked full package, this fee would not need paying anymore.

2.2. Apply for Vietnam visa directly at the Vietnamese Embassy/Consulate
For those who want to get a Vietnam visa beforehand or want to travel to Vietnam by land or sea, they can go to the nearest Vietnamese Embassy or Consulate.
At the moment, in Kenya, there is no representative office of Vietnam's government. Therefore, Kenyan should contact the Embassy of Vietnam in the nearest neighboring country to make visa code or get visa stamped.
