Vietnam visa is inexpensive in comparision to any other countries' visa fees ranging from US$45 - 85 if application is sent directly to the Embassy or US$25-55 if your visa has been pre-approved.

How to get Vietnam visa in UK?

The Vietnam Embassy in London is the only place in the UK that can issue a visa for Vietnam. But you can apply by post, using a form downloaded from the embassy website at the link below. 

You'll need to send: 
* your passport, which needs to be valid for at least a month after the visa will expire. 
* a passport photo of yourself taken in the last year
* the visa fee
* a self-addressed envelope (not stamped) for returning your documents 

Your documents will be returned from the embassy by Royal Mail special delivery. This is also the postal service you should use to send them -- it gives you not just a tracking number but insurance for your precious passport. 

They say it takes five days to process (plus posting times on either side) but even if you have more time than that, it makes sense to get the visa organised as soon as you can. There is an "express" option, which takes two days, but that costs extra. 
As for fees: they say that as they vary so much, you need to email the embassy's Consular department with your particular request:
