Expat Services For Foreigners Working In Vietnam
November 5, 2021
Foreign workers in Vietnam are becoming increasingly popular during this period of economic integration, and understanding the regulations and services available to foreigners working in Vietnam allows businesses to recruit and manage this group of employees more efficiently.
Apply for a work permit
Before coming to Vietnam to work, foreigners must gather all necessary paperwork and documents to obtain a good work permit and expat visa. Companies that provide services to foreigners working in Vietnam can assist businesses and employees with procedures such as consular legalization of qualifications and work experience; applying for a criminal record (for foreigner workers who come to Vietnam for the first time), and guiding foreigners in medical examinations to apply for a work permit.
Companies that provide services for foreigners working in Vietnam not only assist in the preparation of documents and forms per regulations, but they also support the notarized translation process of documents and check the set of documents before applying for a work permit with the Labor Agency on behalf of business/foreigners.
Temporary residence card or expat visa for foreigners entering and working in Vietnam
Foreign workers with a work permit valid for less than a year can apply for a work visa. Workers with a one-year or longer work permit must apply for a temporary residence card.
Companies can seek detailed advice and guidance from expat service providers on legal provisions, accompanying conditions, and preparing necessary papers, documents, and forms to improve the application for a visa or temporary residence cards for foreigners entering and working in Vietnam. Outsourcing services for foreigners working in Vietnam have the advantage of requiring visa permits or quick residence card procedures on behalf of the business at a state agency, allowing companies to save time and money while avoiding document errors.
Declaration and finalization of personal income tax for foreigners working in Vietnam
In addition to payroll services for foreigners, expat service providers exclusively advise corporate customers and foreigners working in Vietnam on legal provisions and procedures relating to expat tax obligations in general and personal income tax (PIT) law in particular. They assist with the registration of tax identification numbers, dependents, the annual PIT declaration, finalization, and the finalization of foreigners’ appointments to return home following regulations.
Today, the companies in the market that provide services to foreigners working in Vietnam are very diverse. However, businesses should select a reputable and professional partner to ensure that all processes comply with latest regulations and protect the benefits of both parties.
