Where should I setup a bank account in Haiphong?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Haiphong what banks they use and there advice about banking. They advised...

"Expats considering retirement in Haiphong, should be aware of several key factors. Firstly, it's important to understand the cost of living, which is generally lower than in Western countries, but can vary depending on lifestyle choices. Healthcare in Haiphong is adequate, with several hospitals and clinics, but serious medical conditions may require travel to Hanoi or even out of the country. The climate in Haiphong is tropical, with a dry season from November to April and a wet season from May to October. The official language is Vietnamese, and while some locals speak English, it's beneficial to learn some basic Vietnamese phrases. The local cuisine is a blend of Vietnamese and French influences, with seafood being a staple. Haiphong is a bustling city with a rich history and culture, offering plenty of activities and attractions, including temples, markets, and festivals. Public transportation is available, but many expats choose to travel by motorbike, which is the most common mode of transportation in Vietnam. Regarding visas, Vietnam offers a retirement visa, but it requires proof of sufficient funds and does not allow the holder to work in the country. Finally, it's crucial to understand the local customs and etiquette, as Vietnamese culture places a high value on respect and politeness," commented one expat who made the move to Haiphong, Vietnam.
