Le Phat Dan is an important day for Buddhists in Vietnam- it is the birthday of Buddha. Throughout the country, Buddhist Vietnamese light lotus shaped lanterns and burn incense sticks to mark the occasion. This is also the best time to visit the country and experience the cultural splendor of Vietnam. This year, Le Phat Dan is very special as Vietnam is chosen as the host country to mark the UN celebration of Buddha’s birthday, also known as the UN Day of Vesak.
Tourists planning to visit the country to witness the celebration can now get their visa processed within 24 hours through visa-vietnam.org. The Vietnam visa on arrival system was introduced to make the visa approval system easy and quick for tourists and businessmen visiting the country. To begin the process, applicants have to fill a form online, make payment via credit/debit card and wait for 24 hours until the approval letter is sent. This letter can be used to travel to Vietnam; upon arrival to any one of the three Vietnamese airports, they can get the approval letter stamped.
They can also help to process visa in an emergency. “If you are stuck at the airport and in urgent need of a visa, we can help you process the visa approval. To avail the facility, visitors have to fill in all the detailed form including the name, nationality and passport number says a spokesperson for the website.”
“Buddhists all over the world celebrate Le Phat Dan. Hundreds of people actively participate on this occasion. They light lotus shaped lanterns and visit Buddhist temples, besides remembering Thic Quang Duc and his supporters who fought to maintain independence of religion,” says a spokesperson for the online visa Vietnam site.
Besides offering quick processing, visa-vietnam.org also offers special discounts for regular flyers. Frequently flying members can get 18%-22% discount from the service change. As for corporate members, they get a discount of around 26% on service charge.
This is a Vietnam based visa processing site that promises to process Vietnam visa within 24 hours or earlier. Visa-vietnam.org is a local business that operates 24 hours a day and aims to help member countries with whom Vietnam has tied up for the visa on arrival scheme.
