This article aims to provide a comprehensive guide on obtaining a work visa in Vietnam, discussing the necessary requirements, procedures, and important considerations for foreign workers. Whether you are an aspiring employee or an employer seeking to hire international talents, understanding the visa process in Vietnam is crucial for a smooth transition and successful work experience.

1. Overview

Single entry or multi-entry Visas shall be granted to foreigners from 30 days to 5 years, depending on the type of Visa. E-visas are issued to the citizens of 80 countries and for a single entry, it can valid for 30-day. The online application is not complicated. 

2. Validity and duration of a visa

Typically, authorities align temporary residence permits with the duration of the visa and can affix them to the passport or issue them separately. Moreover, foreigners can grant permission to temporarily reside in Vietnam during the designated temporary residence period.

3. Visa shall not be extended 

If the foreigner fails to exit Vietnam or apply for a new visa upon the expiration of their temporary residence period, consequently, the Immigration authorities may decide to compel the foreigner to exit Vietnam. Consequently, if Vietnamese authorities compel a foreigner to exit the country, they will enforce a six-month prohibition on the individual’s reentry into Vietnam. As mentioned earlier, if agency authorities caught a foreigner working without a valid work permit or with an expired one, they will receive a deportation order. Consequently, Vietnam will prohibit their entry for a duration of 3 years.

4. Conclusion

In conclusion, navigating the visa process for foreign workers in Vietnam is a crucial aspect of ensuring a seamless and legal entry into the country. It is important for foreign workers to understand the specific visa requirements and restrictions applicable to their situation, such as visa expiration and the need for a new visa for extended stays.
