During Covid 19 pandemic, only foreign experts, business managers and highly skilled workers holding valid business visas sponsored by a Vietnamese company are allowed to enter Vietnam. If you don’t have a sponsor company for a business visa, we can help you!
The Covid 19 pandemic has affected many aspects of all people in the world and in Vietnam too. In the context of the pandemic, the Vietnamese government has taken measures to prevent the pandemic effectively, with low cost and least risk. One of those measures is:
1. Ask people to comply with the 5K epidemic prevention rule: wear masks, sterilize, keep social distance, do not gather in crowded places and take health declaration.
2. When a Covid 19 case detected, immediately examine the source of infection, identify cases F1, F2, and F3 and conduct compulsory isolation at the medical centre (F0), at official managed isolation facilities (F1) or at home (F2, F3).
3. For Vietnamese and foreigners entering Vietnam, 14 days of quarantine are required at official managed isolation facilities or isolation-qualified hotels.
4. Only allow entry for foreign experts, business managers and highly skilled workers holding valid business visas sponsored by a Vietnamese company. In this case, foreigners are also required to be quarantined 14 days after their entry.
In order to enter Vietnam during the Covid 19 pandemic, foreigners must have a business visa approved by the Vietnam Immigration Department as per the acceptance of the Provincial People’s Committee where the sponsor company registered its business. Foreigners holding Temporary Residence Cards (TRC), visa exemption certificates and previously issued tourist visas are also not allowed to enter during this time.
To apply for a business visa, you need to inform if (1) you have a Vietnamese sponsor company or (2) you do not have a Vietnamese sponsor company for your business visa.
