How to get a Vietnam visa in Bangkok, Thailand
by Backpacking Tips Asia
Take a taxi or the Skytrain to the Vietnamese embassy in Bangkok. If you're taking the Skytrain, get off at Phloenchit. Walk towards the hotel- and shopping complex "All Seasons Place" on Wireless road.
When you arrive at the embassy, fill out a form. The cost is about 1000 baht for a visa. You can collect your visa after one or three days, depends on how fast you want it. There's an extra fee for 1-day processing. Make sure you leave early in the morning.
If you're intending on leaving and returning to Vietnam, ask for a multiple entry visa.
