Taiwanese citizens can now enter Vietnam, but only if their purpose of the visit is essential. For instance, if you are a businessman and you need to go to Vietnam for a business trip, you are welcome to enter the country, but there are certain requirements that you need to fulfill. Skilled workers are also welcome, as well as experts, diplomats, and other essential workers.
For Taiwanese businessmen who need to travel to Vietnam for business, the first thing that you need to have is a business visa. To apply for a business visa, you need to have a sponsor company. If you are invited to the country by a Vietnamese company, then you can ask that company to be your sponsor.
Here are the steps to apply for a business visa to Vietnam in this Covid-19 pandemic.
Aside from the business visa, there are several other requirements that Taiwanese businessmen must fulfill before they can be allowed to enter Vietnam during this time.
At the Vietnam airport, all arriving travelers will be subjected to a medical check to determine if anyone has symptoms of Covid-19. Those who have symptoms will immediately be isolated for testing. If the test returns positive, the person will be taken to the hospital for treatment. However, if it’s negative, they can go to their designated quarantine facility for their 14 days of isolation.
While undergoing quarantine at the hotel, all foreign visitors must adhere to the safety measures imposed to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus. They should avoid contact with any person during their isolation. If they start to experience fever, cough, and other Covid-19 symptoms, they must contact the health authorities immediately. That way, they will be tested and taken to the hospital for treatment.
While in isolation, foreign visitors will be tested for the Covid-19 test twice. Once on their 6th day and another on their last day. If they will be found to be positive, they will be brought to the hospital for treatment. Otherwise, they can continue with their isolation and must test negative again on the last day of quarantine before they will be released.
If you are a Taiwanese citizen and you need to go to Vietnam for an important reason, you can ask for help from a local agency for assistance. Businessmen who needed to do business in Vietnam but do not have a sponsor company that can apply for the business visa on their behalf should consult with an agency. The agency may be able to assist you in getting a travel permit, which is an important requirement for the visa. They can also help book a hotel for your quarantine facility. You will find these agencies online. Just search and send them a message.
All Taiwanese passport holders are required to have a visa to enter Vietnam. Taiwanese can apply for a visa at Vietnamese embassy (in either Taiwan or a third country), or online for a visa on arrival.
