The Immigration Law in Vietnam obliges foreigners staying or working in Vietnam to obtain visa and permits to comply with local regulations.
Obtain Vietnam Business Visa
A business visa in Vietnam, also known as DN Visa, is granted to foreigners who are able to present an invitation letter from a business partner based in Vietnam.
Definition of DN Visa
DN Visa allows foreign nationals to stay, do business and work in a company that is legally registered in Vietnam. The validity of a DN Visa varies, but the maximum validity is one year (12 months).
In general, a DN Visa is issued with validity of either one month, three months or six months, considering that it serves its purpose to enable foreigners to stay and work only short-term in the country. Furthermore, a DN Visa comes in single-entry or multiple-entry.
Are you eligible to apply for DN Visa?
If you want to apply for a DN Visa, you need to be a foreigner who is invited to do business and work in a Vietnamese company. But in order to do so, you must not have a Vietnam work permit.
Or, you are also eligible when you are a student who intends to do an internship. A Vietnamese company that invites you for internship should provide you with an invitation letter.
Vietnam Business Visa: Requirements + Restrictions Apply
Immigration offices in different countries may impose different requirements and restrictions.
If you visit Vietnam, take into account the following requirements and restrictions:
- Your passport must be valid for at least six months from the date of departure. If you submit a temporary passport, your application is likely to be rejected.
- Your passport must have two blank pages for visa stamp.
- You must be able to present an invitation letter or a sponsorship letter from either a legal company or a business partner in Vietnam*.
- You cannot apply for an e-visa for DN Visa. The only way to apply is through sponsorship.
It would be a rather quick and easy process to apply for DN Visa, as long as you satisfy all the requirements and submit a complete set of required documents.
*If you are unable to find your own sponsor, Cekindo as a licensed business consulting company that is based in Vietnam, can act as a sponsor and prepare an invitation letter for foreigners who do not have a Vietnamese sponsorship.
