08 Oct FOREIGNER ENTRY PROCEDURES(Last Updated On: June 14, 2021)
EXPERTS ENTRY PROCEDURES INTO VIETNAM
Enterprises that invite foreigners to work in HCMC for over 14 days, including diplomats, investors, business executives, experts and highly-skilled employees (hereafter experts) must conduct three procedures.
According to the HCMC Health Department, they must first send documents inviting experts to Vietnam to the HCMC Department of Labor, Invalids, and Social Affairs, detailing their suggested quarantine options based on the city’s appraised list of paid quarantine hotels. The department will join hands with the HCMC Health Department and relevant agencies to submit the list to the city government for approval. The municipal government will then work with the Vietnam Immigration Department on processing immigration procedures.
After receiving approval for entry from the city government and competent agencies, enterprises need to send documents to the International Health Quarantine Center of HCMC, the HCMC Center for Disease Control and Prevention (HCDC) and medical centers citywide to jointly implement quarantine measures for the experts. The documents must include the approved list of experts and the registered quarantine hotels.
Enterprises will select hotels based on the list approved by the city and posted on the HCMC Department of Labor, Invalid, and Social Affairs’ website at http://www.sldtbxh.hochiminhcity.gov.vn and negotiate the quarantine fees with the hotels chosen.
