Hi eveybody! would appreciate an advise on big retailers - like Metro C&C. Do you need a special card to be able to shop there? any other big retailers in Saigon where you can get international well known brands (food and cosmetics)? preferrable close to district 1. thanks in advance for help, Arteo
arteoviet replied on January 27, 2015 with:
thanks a lot for info! all well noted. nuts - indeed - will bring a small stock of those :) are there any online stores in english in Saigon ? also if anybody using contact lenses - what is the place to find the broad assortment of those and solutions for them? which mobile operator you would recommend with high speed internet access option for smartphones?

Hi, No special card needed for Metro. But better food deals are often found at other large markets, though cheeses are better priced. If you want imported goods, try the market at 58 Ham Nghi St in District 1. There are 2 more very near the trade tower. has a thorough listing...with photos. I buy baking supplies directly from bakery or bakery supply wholesalers. But you can get Redmill products in Saigon. Take favored spices with you if possible...I always take nuts as well.

Hi all, this news has given me the willies, Im here on 3 mnth tourist visa with the intention of obtaining perm or semi permanent wife and son are viet citizens,and I was advised to enter on tourist visa and apply here per my missus for longterm visa, got a month left on current visa and Im not thrilled at the idea of popping into Kampuchea for a week either alone or with family in tow whilst awaiting visa renewal every 3 months till permanent solution is processed. Where in Nha Trang can I best make enquiry re the necessary renewal,and procedeure for acquiring semi/perm residence? Is there perhaps an option Ive over looked in type of visa available to spouse of a viet citizen?

Hi Mark, that is from 2008, and only applies to VK, or their siblings, I've given up on my 3 year old PR application.

The service reflects the price, what this dodgy bloke is selling is an illegal Visa, when he gets caught, so will the idiots who paid the excessive fee's.

What is the max amount of US monetary instruments (including travelers checks and currency)one individual can enter Vietnam with?
ralphnhatrang replied on January 24, 2015 with:
$US5000 each person. You may open a Vietcombank account in your name. The account can be in dong or USD. Take your passport when you open your account. Enjoy your visit.

I'm just coming back for a visit. Nothing major, just two months in the jungle village my wife was raised in. I want to have enough to be comfy and leave some. Just want to know what the rule is on what I can have on my person. We tried opening an account back in 2012 and found it somewhat difficult to open in my nieces name. So we gave up on the idea and just send money 4 0r 5 times a year thru intermediaries. Does any one have a specific number on the dollar value a person can legally bring in?

I'm US and I just married a Vn lady who lives in Dalat. I stay in VN approx 50% of the time. I have my 5 year visa exemption. Does anyone know the process of getting an VN drivers license? Thanks in advance.

What does it say about licenses?
bluenz replied on January 15, 2015 with:
Old news on Ex Pat Blog, the bigger problem is for anyone who tries to get a VEC from Jan 1, my understanding of the new rule is that I think it will be done away with, there is now only a 6 month allowance before they have to leave the country to renew it again, so anyone with a current VEC has until it expires. then what happens?????? Also you can't change the status of some Visa's while IN VN, you have to leave and then re enter to do this now.
