12 days VS 8 MinutesFebruary 21, 2006
After I went to Indonesian’s embassy in Den Haag yesterday to get back my passport, I went to Vietnam Consulate for apply the visa. I arrived too early and they’re not open yet,2 hours waiting…. well, I don’t want to go back to Den haag again next week.. it’s a long trip. Beter wait for a little awhile. It was a nice day, anyway. A bit cold but nice to walk around.
@ around 1:55PM, back to Nassauplein – The Consulate – not so many people in the waiting room. 1 couples, 1 old man, 2 young Dutch girls, 3 single guys (mm…. go to Vietnam as well? not so bad hehehe) and 1 oriental looks girl. There’s 3 counters side by side.
Ms. Juniarti, is this your passport?”
“did you fill the application form?
Do you need my airlines ticket reservation?”
No, we don’t need them but where you gonna stay?”
“I don’t know yet, do you need to know about where I gonna stay while I am in Vietnam?”
“no… not necessary”
“Please wait for awhile, you will be call in a couple of minutes”
After I waited for 8 minutes, I heard my named called. I went to the counter.
“60 euro and please take your receipt and go to next counter to get your passport.”
Next counter – one step to the left (the same guy……hehe thought, I was in the movie):
“Here your passport and your visa, Have a good trip!”
“That’s it? It’s ready.. Giii Thanks.. that’s quick!.”
That’s it. Yeah… that’s it… not even 20 minutes and I got the visa for Vietnam. OOh giii, it’s totally different than in KBRI…. took 12 days to get Indonesian visa. WOAAAAA… super express service! Caùm ôn baø….
