Hi all, I'll be moving to Vietnam next year to work. I'll be working for a local organisation who will organise my work visa. I would like my partner to join me, but we're unmarried, and we're both from the EU (France and the UK) Are there dependent partner/spouse visas? Many thanks!

Not really a question , But those working here illegally on tourist visa's . I think the guys at the airport are on to your short trips to Bangkok and are refusing you entry when flying back in country , So do take your most important thing with you in case they don't let you back in country.So question is have you experienced this or a friend has? Mistakes are common , please digest and correct as needed.......

Has anyone gotten a visa for Vietnam in Phnom Penh recently? I read in the forums from a few years ago that 1 year visas were available. I wouldn't mind getting one through Phnom Penh rather than getting a VOA letter and flying to Bangkok and back.

Does anyone know if you can bring a pet cat into Vietnam on a TOURIST visa? We're moving to Hanoi in late-summer but would like to come early (before work visas take effect) and bring our cat to stay for the interim. I'm getting conflicting info from different sources so was curious if anyone has done this successfully or knows the ACTUAL regulations! Thanks so much, Jeffrey

Can my employer cancel my work visa if I end the work contract early? What about them going to the police to prohibit me from working anywhere else? Also, do they have the authority to freeze my bank account? What can they do if I end the contract early? I've heard many horror stories but not sure if they're true or even possible.

Immigration just went back to the old rates for Americans, and VOA providers like www.visa4vietnam.com are charging the same fees as previously (same as any other nationality).

Ok, I'm an American citizen with a 1 year multiple entry visa I got on arrival for $135. I read somewhere that even with the one year visa you still can only stay in Vn for 90 days. Can that be true? Thanks, mj

Hi everyone, Where to find info on all the new visas, especially the visa exemption? I have a visa exemption and I just wanted to extend my stay by another three months. I was told I can't do this anymore, unless I go to my wife's hometown (Haiphong). I live in central Vietnam and I am not really keen on making trips to Haiphong all the time. Any info, options? Thanks.
