More and more people are making the move, you may have visited Hoi An in the past (maybe several times) and you are perhaps having some thoughts about living here so here are a few advises on successfully making the move.
So first what you need to be allowed to rent a house in Hoi An, is a 3 month visa – That’s all.
Once entering the country with a 3 month visa, normally you would be entitled to 2 to 3 extensions.
**Important** – Try if possible to enter Vietnam through Ho Chi Minh City as extensions will be cheaper.
FINDING A HOME
This can be difficult and seriously time consuming, let’s not forget the language barrier as well. Prices on offer would be like visiting the local market, a palace for 500 usd and a shack for the same price.
Then there are all the formalities that must be in check, the house needs a licence to be rented out and still many owners rent without one, if the house is controlled, you are evicted. Getting the rent back can be tricky.
