Viet Nam Visa for U.S. citizens

My sons are currently in Bangkok on their way to Laos and then on to Hanoi. Can they get the Viet Nam visa at the Hanoi airport or do they need to get it ahead of their departure from Bangkok?

Best to obtain them in Bangkok as visas on arrival have to be arranged beforehand:

Asa with all other foreign citizens, they need to have something in place before they get to Ha Noi, either a full visa from an embassy or a letter of authorisation for Visa on Arrival (see the post at the top of the list regarding VOA or look at the Top Question at the right of the screen, FAQ Visa on Arrival). If they just turn up at Noi Bai airport, assuming they were let onto the flight, they will be turned back.

If they're flying in, have them get the VOA approval letter - cheap and easy, but only for air arrivals - http://www.visa4vietnam.com

(they will need a printer to print the letter out)
