I have only ever had to apply for a visa once before a trip. In actual fact, that wasn’t a vacation but rather the start of my working time in Japan. Since then, I have always gotten a visa at the airport when I arrived. I just thought that was something that normally happened. I assumed that like earthlings in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Canadians were “mostly harmless” and therefore welcome everywhere.
Pho my upcoming trip (my co-workers have started using this joke and I suspect that I will be repeating it numerous times as the trip draws near) to Vietnam, I need a visa. Luckily, it is something that can be done online with a bit of typing, a bit of scanning and a bit of paying.
I picked up a water and wind resistant jacket today. I am getting ready pho my trip.
