Opening a bank account in Vietnam while on a few days holiday?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if it's possible to open a bank account in Vietnam while on a few days holiday? Or do you need a long-term visa?

Long term visa, they are cracking down on bank accounts for short term visa's. Although if you arrive in Saigon you can try TIMO.

Would you not need a permanent address?

I had to show rental contract and work contract to open bank account in Hanoi. The residency permit helped also.

That used to be a good option, but Timo have updated their policy recently - due to new government regulations, see https://timo.vn/en/blog/regulations-for-foreigners/

 

These new regulations mean that at least a 1-year visa is now usually required for a foreigner to open a new bank account in Vietnam.
