2/ Other fees in applying Vietnam work permit

The above fees are only fees paid to the competent agencies. To prepare a work permit application, you need to spend extra money to prepare documents, medical certificate, criminal record, translation and consular legalization, etc.

These costs are not fixed, it depends on the number of valid documents you can provide. For example, if you do not have a criminal record, you must go through a service to process the criminal record, which costs about 2,000,000 VND. If you do not have a medical certificate, you must go to a medical examination, etc.

To save effort and time, foreigners often use the service for processing Vietnam work permits. In fact, the cost of the work permit service is higher than the cost of doing it yourself, but it will save a lot of time. In addition, there are many cases which you cannot get work permit because you cannot provide all the required documents. However, if you do it through the service, you can still get work permit simply.
