  1. I know the denizens here are in love (or in lust) with Thailand. But what if....what if visas for foreigners were rescinded or not renewable for 1 or 2 years, due to covid/political strife/anything. Assuming "going home" is out of the question. Where would you move for a year or two (or longer) to create a life? Why?
  2. Currently, chances of getting in are highly unlikely. Incoming new investors without VN partner are generally required to show evidence of $130k capital or more. The lower capital D4 visa is apparently rare to get approved these days. If you have a VN partner/wife you get a lot more options to start a business with really low capital
  3. The 'poor mans' cliche makes little sense. Both countries are incredibly different. If that is the way you view it, then I think it betrays your lack of intellectualism or cultural curiosity. To address a few of your issues breifly - LIke Thailand, Vietnam has upmarket nightclubs, classy restaurants, and a diverse range of bars and restaurants - every cuisine is in VN if you want it in the major cities. - VN aren't specifically enamoured with Singapore. There is a lot of admiration for South Korea and Japan, European countries, as well as the US believe it or not.
  4. That is an interesting point. In fact, it aligns a bit with Vietnam who recently abolished most of the investor Visa options unless you bring in $130,000k minimum to spend. There is certainly a delusion both Governments have that multi-millionaires will plunge in en masse. But the fact is, there is a hell of a lot of competition, and multi-millionaires don't grow on trees. I appreciate the need for Vietnam to tighten up its visa rules...long overdue. The issue is: 1. no communication - everyone is in the dark 2. no warning with very short time to
  5. Up until this April, there were options to get a permit (with just a Degree, no other caveats) with 2-3 year resident card. Also 3 month business and 3 month tourist visas. The difference now - work permits are much trickier to get all of a sudden, and only 1 month tourist visas and almost all the business visas are being eradicated.
  6. On the contrary, day to day life is superior to Thailand imo. It's far more eastern, much more of an adventure than Thailand. It's got that French feel in the food, coffee and architecture than Thailand doesnt have. The street life is far more interesting and engrossing. The mountains and beaches are much better than Thailand, especially in Central and North. Up until this year, the Government has very much been 'live and let live' when it comes to foreigners. You never see the overt Racism as you do on occasion in Thailand. I love Thailand by the way and have lived t
  7. Well.....it's all happening in Vietnam. For those not informed, since approx 1st April, Vietnam started rejecting the vast majority of rolling business visas and a very large number of tourist visas. People who are trying to do new work permits to change jobs or get new jobs are ALSO being rejected. The vast majority of those whose visa has been 'flagged' are being asked to leave the country within 15 days on an exit visa (which costs additional fees). Its basically a mass deportation. The deportees largely consist of retirees, digital nomads, workers whose workplace 1
