I'd like to find out how long the government of Vietnam will allow a US citizen to stay in Vietnam and how long the US government will allow me to stay abroad. My wife has family in Vietnam but does not want to stay long. I on the other hand enjoy Vietnam and wish to live there. I have a place to stay that she used to own and is now owned by her niece as a gift from my wife.

I suggest you try for a family visit visa, in which a member of your wife's family can sponsor you for your visa. You should ask a member of your wife's family to enquire for you at the nearest Immigration Police office. The visa application form has a section which the village/ward police where you live must sign to say you are registered with them as a temporary resident.

My wife and I used to use this family visit visa until we obtained the 5 year no visa required stamp. The problem with the 5 year stamp is that your maximum stay is 6 months, after which you must leave the country and re-enter.

Being US passport holders, you can get upto 1 year business/ tourist visa. In case you would like to get longer visa term, you should apply for Resident Card or 5 years visa exemption as your wife is Vietnamese. Contact me if you need detail on how to get Vietnam visa.

Thank you. I will apply for the one year visa and then see about the 5 year visa.
