Question: Passport expiration issue
To whom it may concern,
I came across your firms page after spending some time google researching for vietnam immigration professionals. Here is my scenario, I have a flight booked this Friday morning Jan 3rd from Jakarta to Ho Chi Minh. My passport expiration is Jun 30 2014, literallly a few days over the 6 month international requirement. I already have my acceptance visa issued from Vietnam immigration. I’ve been teaching English since early September in Ho Chi Minh for what it’s worth but haven’t secured a work permit yet. So I’m foresseing this being an issue with immigration letting me fly out and I’m hoping to get a letter from Vietnam immigration guarating my acceptance upon arrival in which case that should be a solution for leaving from what I’ve learned. Could your firm be of assistance on this matter? And if not do you recommend contacting anybody else or should I just visit the Vietnam consulate here in Jakarta on this matter? Look forward to your response.
Dear David Bader,
Thank you for contacting us.
This is to inform that your passport is required to be at least full 6 month validity to be allowed to get on board from Jakarta and enter Vietnam. Therefore, it is high possibilities that you will be refused to fly tomorrow morning on Friday, 3rd Jan 2014.
We highly recommend you to go to your country's embassy in Malaysia to extend passport. In case you get a new passport with new number, contact us for further advice.
We hope that it helps and should you need further support, feel free to contact us.
