I'm considering teaching with a firm that's offering to take me on and assume some responsibility for my work permit and residency card. They want $10.6 m VND ($478) to take care of both.
I'm reading online that the fees for the work permit and residency card are a little less than half of what my prospective firm is offering.
Is this a fair price? I have no experience with this process, and have no idea how difficult it would be to obtain these permits on my own.
