Americans are among the top visitors of Vietnam. In order to invite more visitors from the US to visit, the Vietnam government has decided to offer a long-term visa for all visitors holding a US passport.
After closing for several months due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Vietnam has finally opened its doors to foreign visitors, but will only allow travelers whose purpose of the visit is essential. These include businessmen, skilled workers, investors, and experts. As a US citizen, you are required to have a visa before you can enter Vietnam. Thankfully, the Immigration Department of Vietnam has already resumed the processing of the business visa. So if you’re a US citizen and you need to go to Vietnam to do business, you must first apply for a visa. Here’s everything you need to know when it comes to applying for a business visa to Vietnam during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Before you can apply for a business visa, you need to have a sponsor company. If a Vietnamese company is inviting you to the country, then that company will be your sponsor. Here are the steps to apply for the visa.
Entering Vietnam during this time of the pandemic comes with several restrictions and requirements. This is to ensure that the Covid-19 virus won’t be able to get into the country. Although Vietnam was able to successfully control the spread of the virus, Covid-19 is still fast spreading in several parts around the world. So to protect its citizens, Vietnam is implementing strict requirements for those who wanted to enter the country during this time of the pandemic.
All travelers arriving at the Vietnam airports will be checked for any symptoms of the Covid-19-virus. Those who will show symptoms will be tested and if they are positive, they will be taken to the hospital for treatment. But if the result is negative, they can proceed directly to their quarantine facility.
While undergoing quarantine, all foreign visitors should abide by the health and safety protocols that the local health authorities have imposed to fight the spread of the Covid-19 virus. They should not get into contact with anyone outside of their hotel room. And if they start to show symptoms, they need to inform the health authorities immediately. A Covid-19 test will be conducted on the sixth and last day of isolation. If both tests will give a negative result, the foreign visitor can end isolation.
As you see, traveling to Vietnam during this time of the pandemic can be somewhat challenging. There are so many requirements that one must fulfill. If you need help, get in touch with a local agency in Vietnam for assistance. The agency can also help you if you do not have any sponsor company that will process the visa on your behalf. They will help in getting the travel permit so you can be issued a Vietnam visa. Not only that, they can help you in booking a hotel for your quarantine in Vietnam.
