  • ARRIVING  IN  VIETNAM    The  majority  of  new  arrivals  to  Vietnam  touch  down  in  either  Noi-­‐Bai  -­‐  Hanoi  or  Tan  Son  Nhat  in  HCMC,  It  is  also  possible  to  arrive  by  flight  internaLonal  in  Danang.  These  are  at  the  Lme  of  wriLng  the  only  three  ports  of  entry  where  you  can  collect  a  ‘Visa  on  Arrival’.  HOW  DO  I  GET  A  VISA?  If  recruited  from  outside  of  Vietnam  then  LLV  will  act  as  sponsor  for  your  entry  visa  you  will  be  given  a  choice  whether  to  collect  the  visa  at  a  Vietnamese  Embassy  which  is  most  convenient  for  you  or  ‘on  arrival’  at  one  of  the  above  menLoned  airports.  The  ‘on  arrival’  visa  cannot  be  collected  at  a  land  crossing  point  of  entry.  To  facilitate  this  process  the  applicant  must  have  provided  scanned  copies  of  their  passport  informaLon  page  and  all  relevant  qualificaLons  to  the  post.  Occasionally  there  is  a  limited  number  of  ‘on  arrival’  visas  available  and  permission  for  it  to  be  issued  at  the  airport  is  not  granted.  This  situaLon  fluctuates  but  we  will  be  able  to  provide  the  best  advice  at  the  Lme  of  need.  EMBASSY:-­‐   The   easiest   way   to   find   out   exactly   what   is   required   is   to   find   the   website   for   the   embassy   you   are   elecLng   to   use   and   follow   the   instrucLons   therein.     Each   embassy  charges  different  rates  for  all  their  visa  transacLons  so  please  remember  to  ASK  for  a  receipt  with  an  official  embassy  stamp.  You  will  have  a  le^er  of  sponsorship  from  LLV  so  please  remember  to  take  this  and  your  applicaLon  should  be  expediLous.  You  will  receive  a  3  month    B2  class  mulLple  entry  visa.ON  ARRIVAL:-­‐  This  service  is  usually  very  efficient  and  may  add  no  more  than  15  to  30  minutes  onto  your  arrival  Lme.  You  should  remember  to  have  the  le^er  provided  by  LLV  and  four  (4)  passport  sized  photos  with  you.  Also  very  important,  you  will  have  no  Vietnamese  currency  at  this  point  or  access  to  any,  so  please  remember  to  have  about  $100USD  in  your  pocket  on  arrival.  The  visa  should  only  cost  $60,  the  rest  is  just  in  case  you  arrive  and  cannot  use  your  cards  or  cash  travelers  cheques  for  whatever  reason.   THESE  LINKS  WILL  HELP  NAVIGATE  THE  PROCESS                                              www.embassiesabroad.com                                                                                                                                              www.vietnam-­‐embassy.org                www.embassyworld.com    AIRPORT  COLLECTION  ON  ARRIVAL  AND  HOTEL  LLV   will   organize   a   hotel   for   about   the   first   10   nights   of   your   stay   in   Hanoi   or   HCMC   or   to   the   value   of   $200.   We   have   arrangements   with   hotels   and   guesthouses   that   we   have   been  using  for  some  years  and  the  account  is  se^led  directly  by  us.  The  taxi  collecLon  at  the  airport  is  part  of  the  hotel  service  and  you  don’t  have  to  pay  for  that  either.  You  can  Lp  if  you  feel  the  service  merits.  IMPORTANT   NOTE   If   you   arrive   in   Vietnam   by   other   means   overland   then   we   cannot   provide   collecLon   service,   nor   do   we   provide   an   allowance   of   any   kind.   If   for   example   you  arrived  in  Hanoi  and  chose  to  stay  at  a  hotel  that  we  do  not  have  a  partnership  agreement  with  you  will  have  to  obtain  a  ‘red  tax  receipt’  bearing  our  official  company  name  and  tax  number.  You  will  then  receive  the  amount  spent,  up  to  $200  taxed  in  your  final  salary  cheque.  This  can  be  done  but  is  Lme  consuming.  Technically  you  could  have  a  couple  of  nights  in  the  Hilton  if  that’s  what  suited  you  but  not  recommended  unless  you  have  somewhere  organized  to  live  aeerwards.  Depending  on  when  and  from  where  you  arrived,  allowing  for  some   personal   Lme   to   recover,   your   recruiter   or   the   recruitment   manager   will   come   and   meet   you   within   48hrs   at   your   hotel   to   make   sure   everything   is   ok   and   to   explain   the   next  step,  INDUCTION  
  • INDUCTION  There  are  two  stages  to  a  new  teachers  inducLon.  HR  and  Academic.    Aeer  the  iniLal  introducLons  at  the  hotel  your  recruiter  will  tell  you  when  you  are  expected  at  the  school  for  your  academic  inducLon  and  make  arrangements  to  meet  you  at  head  office  for  contract  signing,  administraLon  and  HR  inducLon.  If  Lming  and  schedule  requirements  permit  the  inducLon  process  for  both  HR  and      Academic  can  be  completed  in  the  same  day  but  this  is  highly  unlikely.    The  iniLal  inducLon  in  total,  including  2  class  observaLons,    should  take  about  6  hours.                        HR  documentaLon  and  introducLons  about  2hrs    or  longer  for  local  recruits  who  have  not  had  the  opportunity  to  review  all  the  details                    Academic/Teachers  Room  about  3hrs                      2  x  Class  ObservaLons                                        3hrs  =  6hrs.              The  inducLon  process  is  currently  under  review  and  is  likely  to  be  extended  to  one  weeks  duraLon  which  will  include  a  social  and  cultural  orientaLon  as  well  as  more  class  observaLons  and  input  specifically  aimed  at  both  Young  Learners  and  Academic  English  if  Lme  permits.  Most  of  this  orientaLon  is  unpaid  but  if  during  this  period  the  new  teacher  is  actually  required  to  teach  then  they  will  be  paid  on  the  agreed  basis  as  normal.  Other  expenses  are  being  considered  to  assist  the  teacher  during  this  orientaLon  period.  Human  Resources    -­‐      TEACHER  NEEDS  TO  PROVIDE   1.  Original  copy  of  graduate  qualificaLon  and  notarized  copy  from  Embassy   2.  Original  copy  of  teaching  cerLficate  and  notarized  copy  from  Embassy   3.  If  required    (less  than  6  months  in  country)  an  original  copy  of  Enhanced  police  clearance  cerLficate  and  notarized  copy  from  Embassy   4.  Passport  to  copy  both  informaLon  page  and  visa     5.  Driving  license  or  other  official  document  showing  address  in  home  country  for  opening  bank  account  with  HSBC   6.  A  housing  contract    (when  established)     7.                    Local  police  registraLon  cerLficate   8.                    A  work  permit  medical  at  approved  hospital.  SOS,  French,  Korean  Friendship,  Bac  Mai.      Human  Resources    -­‐        WILL  PROVIDE  OR  ASSIST  WITH   1.  LLV  Service  Agreement                    x2      Both  retained  unLl  signed  by  General  Manager  and  company  stamped,  1  returned.     2.  Labour  Law  Contract                            x2      Both  retained  unLl  signed  by  General  Manager  and  company  stamped,  1  returned.     3.  Liberty  Insurance  contract        x1      Even  if  you  have  your  own  travel  or  medical  insurance  we  require  that  you  sign.     4.  HSBC  Banking  ApplicaLon          x1      Driving  license  or  other  officially  issued  photo  ID  with  overseas  address  required.     5.  Tax  Number  ApplicaLon                x1      Passport  sized  photo     6.  Emergency  Contact  Details      x1      Just  in  case  we  have  to  contact  friends  or  family  back  home  for  any  reason.     7.  Embassy  registraLon                            x1      This  is  not  a  compulsory  measure  but  very  reassuring  to  know  it  has  been  done.     8.  Teachers  Handbook  -­‐  THB                          The  Bible  for  contract  interpretaLon,  Discipline  and  Grievance  Procedures  –  DROPBOX  Link  provided
