Korean passport holders and foreigners in Korea can apply Vietnam business visa and fly to Vietnam for working purpose during Covid-19 period from September 2020.
As we know, Vietnam government has stopped visa issuance for all nationalities and closed the borders in March 2020 for preventing the spreading of CoronaVirus. All foreigners cannot apply Vietnam visa and there is no way to come to Vietnam at that time. However, after pandemic is well controlled in Vietnam, the government has decided to open the borders by allowing some specific cases to apply visa and enter Vietnam.
As the new regulation from Vietnam Immigration Department, foreign passport holders who are experts, high-tech workers, managers, businessmen and come to Vietnam for working purpose can apply Vietnam visa from September 2020.
The applicants must be sponsored by a local company in Vietnam. This company will issue the invitation letter and sign the visa application form for the applicants. Without the sponsored company in Vietnam, the foreign visitors cannot apply Vietnam visa.
Although Vietnam government opened again business visa, but the procedure is quite complicated for the foreigners. So, it’s recommended to apply visa through a Vietnam visa agent.
At first, the Korean passport holders or foreigners in Korea need to ask permission of the sponsor company because this company will sign and seal the required documents for application.
Secondly, the applicants should contact a visa agent in Vietnam. This agent will help the applicants to prepare some related documents and process visa application with immigration department.
The visa agent will contact the sponsored company and get visa application form with signature and red seal. The applicants do not need to prepare any more documents, just need to wait for the result.
The procedures will be handled step be step, and visa will be approved around 30 days from the submission date. And then, the applicants can book quarantine services.

The visitors can book quarantine services through visa agent as well (hotel, quarantine registration, Covid test, car transfer, etc.). All these services only can be booked after getting visa approval. Therefore, the most important thing you should do is, applying the Vietnam visa.
