Where, How, Cost, Time Applying for a Vietnamese Visa while in Bangkok, Thailand.
Vietnam Embassy Address: 83/1 Wireless Road, Lumpini, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330
You will not actually be going into the Embassy, rather entering a yellow side service door which says Consular Hours (see pic). You do not need to ring the bell, just push the door open and walk in; the little visa office will be the second door (glass) on your left.
Morning is a good time to apply. We went on a Monday morning at 10:45 am and there was one other western couple and a few Asians. 2 of the 3 service windows were open.
