Just like with the rest of the countries around the world, Vietnam has to close its borders last year to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus. But in order to revive its economy and welcome foreigners back into the country, the government has opened its borders again. However, they will only allow the entry of visitors who have essential reasons to visit the country. Therefore, New Zealand citizens who wish to go to Vietnam for business can now apply for their business visas. The visa is an important requirement for all essential visitors visiting Vietnam during this Covid-19 pandemic.
To apply for a business visa to Vietnam, you will need to have a sponsor company that will apply for the visa for you. The sponsor company will also be required to write a letter to the Local People’s Committee to ask permission for your entry. Here’s the process.
Since we’re still in the middle of a pandemic, Vietnam would like to make sure that all the visitors that enter the country do not carry the Covid-19 virus. Therefore, New Zealand citizens who wish to visit Vietnam these days would have to quarantine upon arrival. Here are the restrictions and quarantine requirements for all foreigners.
When you arrive at the airport of Vietnam, you will be subjected to random medical checks. Anyone who has been found to have the virus will be isolated for testing. For the rest of the travelers, they can proceed to their waiting vehicle and travel to their hotel for quarantine. As for those who have been found to be positive of the coronavirus, they will be taken to a medical facility for treatment.
While in isolation, all foreign visitors must follow the health and safety protocols that the local health authorities have imposed for epidemic prevention. These include avoiding contact with anyone outside of their hotel room. They should also monitor their health and inform the authorities if they start to develop symptoms. During isolation, they will be tested for the Covid-19 virus twice. Both tests should return negative so they will be released from quarantine.
These days, traveling to Vietnam can get very complicated. But if you have a very important reason to visit the country and you need assistance in the processing of your visa, consider consulting with a local agency. The agency is very familiar with the process involved in applying for a business visa and can make the process easier for you. In fact, for New Zealand citizens who do not have any sponsor company but would need to visit Vietnam, the agency may be able to help with applying for your travel permit and visa.
