Foreign nationals can use several visa categories to enter, work and live in Vietnam. Each visa type corresponds to a specific purpose and time period. EAP helps foreign nationals obtain visas for investment, business, certain professionals, sponsoring agencies and organizations, and other persons with specialized knowledge, experience, and skills.
New regulations effective as of July 1st of 2020 now allow for visa holders to change to another visa type without leaving the country. Visa categories to which a person may be eligible for in-country change include investors, representatives of foreign organizations investing in Vietnam, certain sponsored family members, and being granted a work permit or work permit exemption. Contact EAP for more information on the options available.
