With the direct investment method, the enterprise will be granted an investment certificate by the Department of Planning and Investment - a prerequisite for the project to operate. That is why, investors are required to choose the form of direct investment in the two following cases:

  • When planning to implement large projects or projects related to the state;
  • When planning to use legal status in Vietnam to invest abroad.

  • Simple procedures

  • Must submit a return and PIT
  • There must be a Vietnamese person in the name of the establishment
  • High cost
  • Complicated procedures
  • Bank statement required
