This is wrong. Stamp fee is $25 for 1 month single entry visa.  $135 is for a 1 year,  multi entry which would be a waste for most people.
Could be law was changed again.
When I was there one year multi entry was unfortunately the only option for US citizens. Trust me I tried getting the single entry

So you had an approved Visa Application Letter from Hanoi for a 30 or 90 day visa and the Landing Visa desk at the airport denied it?

For anyone that has traveled there recently, I've read about the visa costing a range of amounts.  Do you think it would be better for me to take the approval letter/VOA route or to go to the embassy in NY?
(Side note- we plan to stay in Saigon and then fly on Vietjet to Da Nang with children of ages from 2-15)

Anyone ever been to Phu Quoc? The new JW Resort looks like an amazing redemption for a category 5, 5/7 day cert.

How much time is needed to get from city center in Saigon to the airport? Shabbos is over at 7pm, can I make it for a 10:30pm flight?

Applying for an e-visa online you are limited to 30 days. It's possible to get longer through the embassy. One can also extend their visa in Vietnam. Also, one can use this company: http://www.vietnamvisapro.net

I was in Ho Cho Minh for 3 weeks, and hope to never see that country again.

No, I was sent there by my employer, for a telecommunications project.

That site seems to offer the 3 month visa.

Is it such an issue getting the visa at the airport when you land with the approval letter?

Pretty straightforward. there's a special counter where you go and give your papers + cash (make sure to have exact change in USD). One thing is that they don't always process passports in the order that it was received... you can also get someone to greet you at the airport and take care of the dealing for you - for a fee.
