TDTU will send you the photocopy of the approval correspondence from the Vietnamese Immigration Department. You will submit it together with your visa application form, original passport, and visa payment. You will then be required to receive the visa at the Vietnamese Embassy/Vietnam Consulate in your home country. In case there is no Vietnamese government office in your country, you will go to another third country to get it. It’s important to inform us as soon as possible so we can organise for your pre-visa approval letter to indicate the location on arrival where you can collect and pay for your student visa.
