In order to invite foreign businessmen and investors to visit Vietnam, Vietnamese authorities have now reopened their borders and resumed the issuance of business visas. So if you’re an American citizen and you needed to go to Vietnam for some business matters, you can now apply for a business visa to enter the country.
But take note that you need to have a sponsor company that will apply for the visa on your behalf. So if a Vietnam-based company is inviting you to come to the country, then that company can serve as your sponsor company and will be responsible for applying for your business visa from the Immigration Department of Vietnam.
Here are the steps to applying for a business visa to Vietnam during this Covid-19 pandemic.
Aside from the business visa, entering Vietnam these days requires several other requirements. So before you book your flight, make sure you have these requirements sorted.
When you arrive at the airport of Vietnam, you will be checked for symptoms of the Covid-19 virus. Anyone who is showing symptoms will be isolated and tested. If the result is positive, the traveler will be taken to a medical facility to be treated. But if the result is negative, then the passenger can proceed directly to the hotel to start their 14-day quarantine.
When undergoing quarantine, all visitors must follow the health and safety measures that the local health authorities have implemented to fight the spread of Covid-19. They should not go out of their hotel room and mingle with the community. And if they start to develop symptoms like fever and cough, they should report it to the local health authorities as soon as possible.
While on isolation, the visitor will be tested for Covid-19 twice. The first test will be conducted on their sixth day of quarantine while the second test will be done on their last day of quarantine. They can only end their quarantine if both tests will turn out negative. In the event that they will test positive, they will be taken to a hospital to be treated.
American citizens who need help in traveling to Vietnam these days should get help from a local agency. The agency can assist in getting a travel permit, which is a very important requirement when applying for a visa. These agencies will make the process easier for you since they are familiar with the steps involved.
Those who do not have a sponsor company but need to visit Vietnam for some important reasons can have the agency sponsor their trip. The agency will apply for the business visa on their behalf and help with booking the hotel for their quarantine stay.
Apart from the lengthy and confusing procedure of the traditional visa application, the process of applying for the Vietnam E-Visa for American Citizens is way easy and very convenient. However, there are some fields that are must to fill, and the answers should be 100% correct.
