Vietnam’s borders have now been opened, but only visitors who have essential reasons to visit will be allowed to enter. For Austrian citizens who need to go to Vietnam for business, they can now apply for a business visa. The visa is a very important requirement for Austrian businessmen to enter Vietnam during this time of the Covid-19 pandemic. Aside from businessmen, the other visitors that can enter Vietnam these days are essential workers, business managers, skilled workers working on important projects in Vietnam, investors, and other visitors with important reasons to enter the country. Here’s everything you need to know when it comes to applying for a business visa to Vietnam.
A Vietnam-based sponsor company is needed before you can apply for a business visa to Vietnam. It is the company that will apply for the visa on your behalf. Here’s how.
To ensure that the country remains safe from the rapid spread of the deadly Covid-19 virus, the Vietnamese government has implemented several strict measures for all arriving visitors. These include submitting a Covid-19 negative result and undergoing quarantine upon arrival.
When you arrive at the airport of Vietnam, you must be willing to submit to medical checks to determine if you have any symptoms of the Covid-19 disease. The local health authorities will be at the airport to conduct the checks. Anyone who is having fever, cough, and other symptoms will be isolated. The said visitor will also be tested. If it shows positive, he or she will be taken to a medical facility to be treated. For the other travelers who have no symptoms, they can proceed to their waiting vehicle so they can travel to their designated quarantine facility to begin isolation.
While undergoing quarantine, all foreign visitors must adhere to the health and safety measures that the government has imposed for epidemic prevention. They should not get into contact with anyone in the community for the entire 14 days of their isolation. The moment they start to develop symptoms, they should call the health authorities immediately so they can be treated.
During their sixth day in isolation, they will be tested for Covid-19. If the result is positive, they will be taken to a government facility for monitoring and treatment. But if it’s negative, they can continue their quarantine and get tested again on their last day.
Consult with a local agency in Vietnam for assistance if you find it very difficult to process your business visa to Vietnam. The agency can also help you if you don’t have a sponsor company. They may be able to ask for a travel permit from the Local People’s Committee so that the Vietnam Immigration Department will approve your visa application. The agency can also help with the processing of your visa and all the other requirements needed for travel, such as booking the quarantine facility.
Can I apply for an e-Visa on behalf of my family? Yes, you can, for as long as you have their passport and you’re able to submit the requirements stated above. Can I apply e-Visa for multiple applicants at a time? No, every visitor should have his or her own e-Visa.
Perhaps, the first question that comes to your mind upon hearing about the e-visa is, what are the requirements needed? The requirements are basically the same as what you need to submit when applying for a regular Vietnam visa. However, you also need to have a credit card to pay for the visa fee online.
