Difference between Vietnam Work Visa and Vietnam Business Visa

Many foreigners might think a business visa and a work visa for Vietnam is the same. But in fact, they are completely different. Vietnam work visa is not a business visa.

  • While a business visa (DN visa) is granted to those who come to work with Vietnam-based enterprises, a work visa (LD visa) is granted to those who come to work for Vietnam-based company or office.
  • The DN visa is applied online or directly at the Vietnam embassy/consulate in foreign country by the foreigners themselves but the work visa is applied in Vietnam by the company where the foreigner works for and then stamped in the embassy in foreign country by the foreigners themselves.
  • Applying for a business visa does not requires a work permit, but applying for a work visa does.
  • A work visa might have longer validity than a business visa.
  • With a work visa, one can apply for a temporary residence card while he/she cannot do so with a business visa.
