If you process a visa letter on arrival, you need to get the visa stamp and pay the stamp fee at Airport by cash. Please make sure that you have all your letter and prepared visa form, 2 passport pictures ready and complete.

There are many ways to move to Hanoi from there, you can choose one of the options as belows.

Hanoi Airport Pick-up

According to the newest policy of the airport, our guide can't hold a name board and get into the lobby of the airport. To pick-up you at the airport smoothly, after collecting your luggage, completing the immigration and customs procedures, and walking through the exit gate, you would see our guide holding a welcome sign with your group’s name. Then, just leave him your luggage, our driver and guide will transfer you to your hotel. Please enjoy your time in Hanoi before Halong Bay cruise trip.

If you book our private car transfer, you just need to provide us with your arrival flight information and your hotel in Hanoi and enjoy the best service with us. 

Besides, there are also some other ways to get from the airport to Hanoi as below:  

+ Airport Shuttle bus: Outside the arrival terminal, you can see the shuttle buses, the buses come every 45 minutes and most of them cost 40,000 VND ($1.80). The shuttle bus you take does not have to be the same as your airline (except Jetstar Airline). However, if choose shuttle bus service, you should check the drop-off point of the bus before booking. 

+ Public bus: This is the best way to save your budget for your trip, however, it is not as convenient as private car pick up of course. As Shuttle bus service, you can also find the public bus outside the terminal exit. The bus reaches the drop-off point in Hanoi in about 1 hour. Please check the map to choose the drop off point nearest your accommodation, then you can take the taxi or walk there. 

+ Taxi service: If you do not use the buses but not book the pick-up service yet, regular taxi is a good choice for you. It is easy to find a taxi outside the terminal. However, please be careful when taking a taxi, you should check the price with the driver first.
