The number of investors opening companies in Vietnam in the last several years has increased considerably, as the country’s economy became more diverse. Even if the company formation procedure in Vietnam is not the simplest, there are ways in which at least part of the process can be simplified. One of these ways is opting for a virtual office which can be used as the registered address of the company – having a local registered address is mandatory when starting a business in Vietnam. However, a Vietnam virtual office also has other uses.

Our Vietnam company registration consultants can offer a precise definition of the virtual office.


What is a Vietnam virtual office?

The virtual office is not a traditional office, but a service available to foreign and local businessmen and companies seeking to have a contact point in a country or one or more cities. In Vietnam, a virtual office can be used to keep in contact with existing clients and business partners or to carry out research activities and prospect the market for potential customers.

Why choose a virtual office in Vietnam?

The virtual office is the cheapest solution for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Vietnam, which also represent the engine of the local economy. Virtual offices come equipped with various equipment – from simple telephones, faxes, and computers – to high-tech solutions, such as state-of-the-art projectors and robo-answering services.
Another reason to choose a virtual office is that it can be located in a prestigious business center in one of the large cities of Vietnam, which is a suitable option for large companies seeking to have a contact point with its customers and partners.

The costs of virtual office services in Vietnam should not be neglected, as they can have a positive impact on the company’s budget. For example, our Vietnam company registration specialists always offer personalized virtual office services enabling clients to choose the solutions they want to integrate at very affordable rates.

The uses of a Vietnam virtual office

Virtual office vs traditional office in Vietnam

Many foreign investors who want to find new business opportunities in Vietnam often wonder what of the two options – traditional or virtual office – is best for them.

 Traditional Office  Virtual Office
