Vietnamese visa with entry & exit stamp

Hello, my wife had her interview and received the green paper requesting for "evidence of travel in 2012 and 2013 that includes my Vietnamese visa with exit and entry stamps".

Here is my situation, I can provide proof of travel, such as boarding tickets and receipts and pictures, but I do not have the VN visas from 2012 and 2013. If I remember correctly, upon my departure from VN, the IO took the loose leaf visa from me. They did not stamp my passport when I entered and exited. So I have no record of entry or exit. Does anyone know if they keep records of our arrivals and departures, and if so, who can I contact for the records? Otherwise, is there anyone who had experience this type of RFE and can give me advice on what I can do?

Thanks for any advice given.

I would think a copy of credit card statements showing what/when you paid for the tickets along with the itineraries and boarding passes would be sufficient. I would also type up a notarized statement explaining to them what happened to your VN visas, then send it to your wife along with the proofs.

Btw, when I went back last year and again this year, both of my VN visas were stamped with entry and exit stamps, and given back to my at my departure from Tan San Nhut. They also did not stamp my passport.

Thank you. I don't know if they changed their procedures or not, but my visit in February of 2013, i didn't receive my visa back. But my visit in the May of 2013 and this year, I received the visas back with both stamps, but no stamps in my passport. If it's a new procedure, wouldn't the consulate know?

Thanks for replying and suggestion. I will type a notarized letter and pray that it is sufficient.

There are two ways that I think you can approach:

1) Get all tickets, credit card statements that used to buy the ticket, leaf visa, pictures, receipt of any purchased you made during that trip ( or credit/ debit statement that shows you spent in Vietnam), then write a letter to explain the situation( i.e. Passport Control took the leaf visa back). Did you go to Police Station in Vietnam to tell them that you will live at this address by this date? They probably have that record so your wife can obtain from them.

2) Go to CBP near your city to obtain Travel History Record which includes all details about your travels. This takes 1-3 months to get it but you might want to expedite. I recommend to try the first option first.

I recommend to all other people that you need to get Vietnamese visa inside the passport not loose leaf visa, because they will stamp your passport this way.
