Avoid this Consular Section Visa
As expat I had my fair share of dealings with Embassies and Consulates. This one is definitely the one to avoid !

They happily refuse a visa, based on non existing visa rules.
Rejecting visa on no legal ground and no reason. They will happily ask you to submit a legal document where they will state themselves it's not possible to retrieve. Be very aware of security, or what it is supposed to be. Even if you have an appointment, they are by no means reluctant to go through your documents ! And to top it off? Refer you to an other address where you are not supposed to be going. This Consulate excellence mainly surfaces by it's complete lack of attention to legal documents. Rejects visa on no legal ground what so ever.And incompetence. Rendered consular services? Forget get. They will dump the onus of consular services on applicant's or it's principal.

It is worth it to buy a ticket and process through Hanoi Embassy. Stay away from this Consulate and it's incompetence. It will cost you an arm and a leg for no reason at all.

Don't believe everything certain Consulate staff tell you
Recently and from Cambodia enroute to live in Vietnam with my Vietnam wife, I noted that my Aussie ATM card was soon expiring. Thus with no address I requested that via Aussie bank, forward me the new card to my consulate in Saigon. I contacted the Consulate and was told although it wasn't normal practice, they would do so for me as card was enrouteaand would call me etc, they also spoke to my Vietnamese wife .I called the Consulate again 8 days later and was told by the same Vn Consulate employee to which my taxes pay for that they have changed their minds!!
Thus I've had to call Aussie bank have the new card that the consulate stuffed up cancelled to which cancells my existing card, to which means no money for my family or self until I receive another new card!!!
I've complained to Hanoi Ambassador, but probably too busy having tea parties to care, typical polly!!
Thanks so much Aussie Consulate Saigon, for the total inconvenience that you have caused me, what real function do you do if I'm not dead, in hospital or in prison or need a new passport?????

Typhoon Krosa
My mother and I have just checked in to sunrise hoi an resort on the beach at cua dua and have been advised there is a typhoon due to cross the coast tomorrow near here..they hAve advised not to worry as is more a tropical depression but they have workmen around the complex taping up windows and have closed the lap pool and beach And taking furniture inside..we have been told by a lady staying here they have been preparing for a few days now..
Have you issued any travel warnings or advice as not too confident that it will all be 'okay'
We had no knowledge of this and would have stayed in the old town where we have been for a few days..
Can u advise any information re this situation..
Kind regards jennifer lockley,Brisbane Australia
