It's pretty straightforward, though it's not a true exemption. You still need to renew it every few months (if you are living here in VN) or when you travel to VN.

Just another hoop to jump through with the VN government.

Are you referring to the five year visa waiver for foreign spouses of Vietnamese citizens? You mention travel (and not living) to Vietnam so I am guessing yes.

Searching google will reveal how to go about obtaining the waiver. As with anything in Vietnam there is the sticker price and the price you pay. Using an expeditor will make the process easier but a little costlier. Assuming you go this route expect to pay about $100 in total. I've had my waiver for a while so I forget the exact price. Officially I believe it's $25. Anyways, I got my waiver while in Saigon so I can't help with obtaining it from the US. I live in LA so my guess is I could easily find a service in Orange County when it comes time to renew the waiver.
