Visa regulations governing volunteer engagement with NGOs in Vietnam are quite specific and include several different government offices. Therefore, it is important for all visitors and volunteers who would like to take part in HFHV’s programs to follow the below guidelines for obtaining the appropriate visa which must be processed through HFHV and PACCOM (The People’s Aid Coordinating Committee who manages NGOs in Vietnam).
1. Visa Type: NN3 is compulsory (tourist visa – DL is not allowed) NN3 – issued to people who come to work with foreign non-governmental organizations, representative offices, branches of foreign traders, representative offices of other foreign economic, cultural, professional organizations in Vietnam
2. Valid: 1 month
3. Entry: single entry
4. Location: Visa should be obtained prior to departure at the nearest Vietnam Embassy or Consulate.
5. List of visa exemption: http://www.chinhphu.vn/portal/page/portal/English/visa-procedure
1. HFHV must first seek approval from the local authorities in the location of the volunteer build.
2. This approval requires HFHV to submit volunteer details including copies of passports all together. Therefore, if some volunteers are traveling earlier, the visa process must be started earlier in order to be completed for their entry date to Vietnam.
3. The local authorities will provide an approval letter to PACCOM who will then submit to the immigration office.
4. Once processed, the immigration office will provide an official letter to HFHV that will support the NN3 visa request which we will then send to the Sending Coordinator/Team Leader.
5. With this letter, volunteers can submit their visa application to their local Vietnam Embassy.
