Working and living in Vietnam – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Vietnam requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Vietnamese expat life. Living abroad in Vietnam raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Vietnam?ʺ, ʺHow much rent do I have to pay for a top-quality serviced apartment in Hanoi?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Hanoi should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Vietnamese municipality in Ho-Chi-Minh-City?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Vietnam is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Vietnam aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Vietnam. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from housing and household, to embassies & consulates or sports and leisure, up to international schools. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺWhich movie theatres show foreign-language films on a regular basis?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.
