Dear vietnam visa support,

I am ready to apply for the 2 years visa. Before I would just like to clarify 2 aspects as follows:

1) I have a Thai Privilegevisa for 5 years and I am staying here in Thailand. I plan to come the Vietnam for 2-3 days once a month or in two months. Since this Vietnamese visa is a working visa, I wonder if I will get in trouble with immigration office for staying just 2-3days in here with the working visa.

2) I would like to pay 50%of your fee now and 50% later on.

Can you please advise me regarding my 2 inquiries? Thank you in advance.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards,

Dear Miss,
Thanks again I booked my flight Bangkok to Cameroon 13th of Jan, I try best to sent the documents as soon as possible.
I am going back to my country on 13feb and I can prepare all documents.
I have researched on my Ministry of Foreign Affairs and they can only legalize the medical certificate. Passport copy cannot be legalized there as it is already issued by my country. I paste below the link from my Foreign Affairs's Ministry ( in English) http://www.mofa.gov....

For police record I can get it from my local police station. Is it enough to legalize it with notary?

Which documents exactly you need translated in Vietnamese?
Dear Mr. Imran,

You do not need to legalize passport, only medical certificate and education certificate

For Police record, you will do it in Vietnam, not your country

Thanks for fast answer.
Also medical certificate and education certificate they need to be translated into Vietnamese?

As per your guidance, I have got my graduation degree and Medical Fitness certificate attested / counter signed from Ministry of Foreign Affairs Cameroon. Later on once I called to Vietnam Embassy for its translation into Veitnamis language, they said that they can only counter signed it but cannot translate into Veitnamis language. Consequently may I can forward / mail my graduation degree and medical fitness certificate for translating into Veitnamis language so that I can get it countersigned from Vietnam Embassy in Cameroon. I will be highly obliged for your cooperation in this regard. Thanks
Dear Mr. Imran

for those documents, you can bring to Vietnam to get it translated. Now you only need to get legalized and notarized as we have instructed you before
Dear Miss!
As per your instructions, all the documents have been prepared duly legalized and notarized. I am sending you following documents as you requested:-
1. Graduation degree duly legalized/notarized from Higher Education Commission and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cameroon (backside).
2. Medical Fitness Certificate duly verified from Ministry of Foreign Affair of Cameroon (front and back).
3. Police Verification Certificate legalized / verified (frontside).
4. Copy of Passport.
5. Experience letter duly notarized (frontside).
Please check all documents that I am sending you and tell me that all are ok or otherwise. Moreover, once I will visit you I will provide/bring all original documents along with me for you.
Dear Mr. Imran

===> There are two options to make work permit

Option 1:
You go to Vietnam and make other documents:

Option 2:
If you do not go to Vietnam now, you should provide following documents

- Health certificate to state that you have good health to work, the health certificate should be confirmed by big hospitals and it must be legalized in that country

- Police clearance: the document you sent us was not legalized

- Passport copy (all page) must be legalized

Please legalize it (as you did with certificate) so that we can do

Miss that medical certificate issued by Government Hospital and verified by ministery of foreign affairs,every country has different law and in my country we follow these rules, as per your suggestion I would like to visit Vietnam and wants to adopt first option, its more convenient for you, I don't have any problem so might be I will be visit next month end, I will message you one week before and please prepare multiple business visa for me that time.
