Will a notarized copy of my divorce decree allow me to get married?

I'm engaged to a beautiful Vietnamese woman and will be traveling to Hanoi very soon to spend some time with her and hopefully get married. I lost my original divorce decree but have a notarized copy of the it. Will this work for officials in Vietnam?

When I got married in Da Lat in 2014 we were told that I needed an original decree of divorce. I requested a copy of my divorce certificate from the court in the UK and had that notarised by the British Consulate in Saigon and that was accepted.

What you did may no longer be possible for British nationals already living in Vietnam unless they have someone back in Britain to do the legwork.

As an American, theSpringZone should still be able to go to the US Consulate or Embassy, have his statement of the authenticity of the document notarized, and have it certified and translated by the Vietnamese government.  Note that the US consulate does not notarize the document but notarizes your statement.  They have pre-printed wording.   I did my divorce decree with the VN Embassy in D.C but my work permit documents in HCMC.  The procedure however should be the same.
