Establish foreign representative office in Vietnam

Representative offices of foreign traders in Vietnam are dependent units of foreign traders, established to explore the market and carry out some trade promotion activities. Therefore, the establishment of a representative office of a foreign trader must comply with the provisions of Vietnamese law.

Foreign traders are responsible before the law of Vietnam for all operations of their representative offices in Vietnam. A foreign trader may not establish more than one representative office or branch with the same name within a province or centrally run city.
