e visa for travel to Vietnam from China

I have looked at the list of border crossings where an e visa works. I cannot see the Dong Dang one which is on the train line from Naning in China to Hanoi. Perhaps the border crossing is called by a different name. Can anyone tell me if I can use an e visa on this service?

Thanks

Hello,

I believe, could be wrong, the border check point at Dong Dan is known as Hữu Nghị and is on the e-visa list.

Hope this helps

I believe, could be wrong that Hữu Nghị is just the road crossing...

Well, I should have just checked my passport:

It is stamped Huu Nghi.

Well, if they're not letting people exit by rail with an E-Visa, I'd expect that entry isn't possible;

When I came in by train, admittedly a while back, my passport was stamped "Dong Dang".

I see,

Dong Dang by rail, Huu Nghi by road, is that correct?

If e-visa is not acceptable for the train journey it is easy enough to get a visa from the consulate in Nanning.

Take care

No idea about Vietnam visa from Nanning Consulate... I used a second entry with a multiple entry 'VOA'
