Additional information

A number of documents must be submitted in the application for an investment certificate, for example: BCC, request for issuance of investment certificate, etc. In practice, since all of these documents must be drafted in Vietnamese they require some local support (e.g. from law or consultancy firms or individual consultants).
Foreign investor and Vietnamese investor shall sign on BCC to submit to Investment Certificate issuing authority.
We assume here that:
(1) Investment projects under BCC described here are not projects using land;
(2) Vietnamese investor in BCC shall provide document proving office or location and related documents for project implementation, such as: MOU or contract on office lease, legal documents proving ownership or use right to location.
