Can foreigners register a business in Vietnam

Well it seems obvious from the lay people opinions that the OP should hire a lawyer to get the proper advice that would apply to his particulars situation. But the short answer to his question is that he can register a company here in VN in his name alone.

Not sure he is following this thread as it is from 2014 :D

Cuong Pham :

I know the topic is old, since 2014. But two year later then, so far Vietnam government already made many changes in the law on investment and enterprise, which encourage foreign investment to Vietnam. Although some limits for foreign business, I can see the effort and create opportunities for expats to do business in Vietnam.
Back to you guys query on whether a foreigner register 100% foreign owned business in Vietnam, I can say YES, but it is depend upon some factors that I list below.
There are some factors control the process of business set up in Vietnam:
+ Business fields (whether it is prohibited or required conditions to process, it is following WTO Commitment and Vietnam law on investment which declares 267 conditional business fields)
+ Product (whether it is prohibited or need any license to distribute in Vietnam)
+ Nationality of owner (Seldom)
+ Location (sometimes, for some industries, starting a business in Hanoi (capital) is easier than in other cities)
For any foreign owned business in Vietnam, the steps of setting up your business could be listed as:
a, Step 1: Obtaining Certificate of investment registration
It allows you to invest in Vietnam
b, Step 2: Obtaining Certificate of business registration
It allows you to open company in Vietnam
c, Step 3: Post license procedure
opening company bank account, company stamp, tax registration
d, Obtaining other licence
There are some conditional business fields that require foreign business to acquire before start business in Vietnam. Please send me your business plan, I will help you to check whether your business is prohibited or require any conditions.
