== Requirements ==

I want to attend Hanoi SFD 2014 to join the Fedora activities and overall FOSS events. I want to share the experiences in China, and talk with other active ambassadors about future events, budget planning and ambassador group updates. I also want to be part of the SFD event and learn from VFOSSA about how to organize big events for thousands of people.

The flight from Beijing to Hanoi costs about 445USD.

== Additional information ==

I can cover the hotel costs myself.

I probably need an invitation letter to apply visa.


You need a Letter of approval then to get Visa on Arrival at Noi Bai International Airport (Hanoi). It would be the visa type for one entrance and stay in 30 days.

I will hire a local travel agency here to issue it. Please provide your personal information:
- Full name (as on passport):
- Gender:
- Date of birth:
- Nationality:
- Passport number:
- Passport expiration date:
- Estimated Arrival date: (usually on Sept 18th)

Since you did not attend the funding decision meeting, please confirm your attendance to SFD then I can process your request.

Hi tuanta,

Sorry I did not attend the meeting today since something came up then. I confirm my attendance to SFD (if I can get visa successfully).

About the visa, it seems that VOA is not available for Chinese citizens who depart from China mainland. [1] (But OK with China mainland -- Hong Kong -- Hanoi) I will try to apply visa through embassy first, since it should be less hassle. If it cannot work out (which should be unlikely, according to the information I found on web), I will seek your help with VOA visa.

Hi alick,

We found a local travel agency (TA) that can provide services for Chinese to Vietnam. We can support you work directly with the local TA for getting the landing visa - one month/single. Please follow the following procedure:
1. Scan your passport then send to my email address (thangnguyennang1988 [at] gmail [dot] com). Besides, you have to provide additional information to me (final arrival and departure time, detailed flight information)
2. I willl send your provided information to the local TA
3. The local TA will submit all information to Immigration Department
4. After 3 working days (except Saturday, Sunday & Public holidays), Immigration Department will issue the visa approval letter
5. The local TA then send the approval letter via email to me and I will forward the approval letter to you
Important Notes:
You must print the approval letter out and show it at the airline check-in counter before flying to Vietnam
Upon arrival, you need to go to "LANDING VISA" counter where your visa will be processed. You need to fill in a form (02 passport photos size 4x6cm + passport + approval letter + 45 $US stamp fee required) and get the visa stamped by Immigration Officer
* Your one month/single visa gets stamped in the passport

Please ask me if you have any questions.

Hi,

I've uploaded my flight receipt. The total expense is CNY 2973 = USD 484. I am fine whether the extra small portion is reimbursed or not.
