You show a bank statement showing the equivalent of at least 20k baht in the account. 

You have to pay the fee using $40 US.

When you get to the airport..passport control...look left for Visa on arrival.

Might have to wait an hour just to get the visa stamped into your passport.

 

He is from the UK and will get a free 15 day visa exempt entry.

It does not have to be in baht. Note that I wrote the equivalent of 20k baht. It can be in any exchangeable currency.

If you have online banking on a phone they will accept a print out of a screenshot showing the balance.

OP, how long do you wish to stay in Vietnam. UK pp holders are visa exempt. If that the case go straight to passport control for stamp. If you want longer then apply for tourist visa. Best way IMO, obtain "letter of approval" from online agent. Upon arrival you go to visa on arrival counter. The agent when emailing your letter of approval will also include link to download form. Have it all fill in with photo before you land. Easy.

BTW on the form where it asks about sponsor... Leave that blank.

Its a 2 sided form. Print it out 2 sided

ERROR...just realized op is applying for a setv to THAILAND.

I misunderstood and thought he was applying for tourist visa for Vietnam.

Wife and self had the the odd experience in HCMC airport Imm' when one IO was asking to see boarding card stubs. Still not sure why he was asking everyone for those. Only happened one time.

It happens in many countries and also Thailand. And yes it varies...  sometimes asked and sometimes not. Weird.

The website says evidence of 20,000 baht per person or 40,000 baht per family.

Don't see why showing cash would be a problem.

They will not accept showing the cash. They want something that can be attached to the application form for their records.

When this happens today, it usually means there was a glitch in the Advance Passenger Information System that informs immigration of the passengers expected on each flight. Since you were not automatically recorded in the system, the official wanted to confirm your flight details manually.
