Three of us will be travelling on bicycles into Vietnam from Guangzhou China this month. We will be crossing the land border into Mong Cai. Can we get a visa at the border or do we have to have one in advance and how much will it cost? Thanks for your help.
We would suggest you to pick up your visa at Vietnam consulate in Guangzhou in advance, the cost varies year by year and depends on each embassy, however, the fee for getting a visa in Guangzhou is around 56 USD or around 382 Chinese yuan.
kindly take a look on this page for details on how to get a visa from Guangzhou.
Have a good day.
