The Vietnam guide

Latest articles

If you are traveling or moving to Vietnam, you are probably at the very least curious about the cuisine and wondering what to expect.

If you have moved to Vietnam with your young children, you might be looking for a safe and nurturing place to look after them whilst you are at work. Some expats prefer to look for a nanny, while others prefer to entrust their children to a nursery or kindergarten.

One of the primary steps during your immigration into Vietnam will be determining whether you are taking your belongings with you. Finding furnished accommodation is not difficult and might be preferable if you do not plan on staying indefinitely. Otherwise, you should consider hiring international moving professionals.

If you are planning to move to Vietnam and you intend to bring a pet, there are a number of formalities that have to be completed prior to your departure as well as on your arrival in Vietnam. Key areas to focus on are your pets medical records and your passport.

Before traveling to Vietnam, you should inquire about customs regulations in the country. Some items may be prohibited whilst others are permitted but are required to be declared on arrival.
