Tip: If you want to work in Vietnam without the need of work permit, a long-term business visa is very helpful. Furthermore, you don’t need your employer to have a work visa and work permit. You yourself is good enough to get the visa.
The business visa is valid for a maximum period of 1 year from the date of entry provided in the application form. The visa validity is also the length of time that the visa holders are allowed to visit Vietnam. Please be noted that 1 month and 3 months business visas can be issued with single and multiple entry but the 6 months and 1 year visa is granted for multiple entry only.
