In the first case: if you rent individual house or apartment in city:[1]

You don’t need to care about this procedure, because the person directly managing and operating the accommodation establishment (collectively called the lessors) will declare temporary residence with the police of the commune, ward, town or police station where the accommodation establishment within 12 hours (for other areas), within 24 hours (for remote areas) from the time the foreigner arrives at the accomodation facility.

– In the second case: if you buy apartment or individual houses in housing construction investment projects:[2]

When buying an apartment or individual house in an area where investment is allowed, investors need to pay attention to the quantity they own and the term of ownership. Accordingly, investors can only own no more than 30% number of apartments in an apartment building; If it is an individual house or a townhouse, in an area with a population equivalent to a ward-level administrative unit, no more than 250 houses can be owned. The ownership termination is not more than 50 years from the date of issuance of the Certificate and can be extended

As for registering temporary and residence registration in the owner place, the law is not obligation for owner (investors) to declare.

Foreigner are registered health insurance when they are in these cases:

– That is an employee with an indefinite term; with a term of 3 months or more;

– Is an unprofessional person working in a commune, ward or town;

Therefore, the investors and relative over 18 years of age is not eligible of registering health insurance. Unless investor’s spouse is employee in the company, organization, your spouse will be registered by the employer.

For the children under 18 years of age, they only buy health insurance when they receive scholarships from the Vietnamese state budget will participate in health insurance and paid by the agency, organization or unit granting the scholarship. Opposite, they won’t able to take part in the health insurance in Vietnam.

– The answer for question is still available if you previously subscribed to the original network’s international roaming service. When you arrive in Vietnam, you just need to reinstall and turn on international roaming mode. Then your phone will automatically receive signals from carries in Vietnam. However, the fees used for communication and data for foreign SIM cards will be relatively high.

– But if you use an international SIM card (also known as a tourist SIM), the answer maybe that it can’t be used in Vietnam. Because this type will specify an area and country that you can use. If you use an international SIM card that doesn’t include the Vietnam country, the phone will not receive signal because it isn’t in the correct operating area.

– Therefore, if investors and your relatives live in Vietnam for permanently, you need to buy a local SIM card which is both convenient for communication, use data, easily register as well as the fees will be cheaper than using a foreign SIM card or an international SIM card. The three largest Vietnamese phone providers, including: Viettel, MobiFone and Vinaphone.

– Local SIM cards in Vietnam are incredibly affordable. For just $5, you can purchase a SIM card that comes with 2 GBs of mobile data. If you are looking for a monthly data plan, you can acquire 28 GBs of mobile data for just $6. The Internet is often included in the rent of apartments in Vietnam. If not, you can buy data from the phone providers.
