I am an British guy in the UK and I wish to sponsor my partner who is Vietnamese in HCM City to come and study in the UK. To do this he must have £10K in his bank account for about 2 months to show he can afford to be in the UK for the English language course. This is purely for the visa requirements. So it appears simple to transfer funds to his bank account, then before he arrives in the autumn, and after securing the visa, he can send the money back to me. He does not have a bank account here. Having spoken to him and read many threads on here, I can see it is not a simple request to move money in and out of a VN bank. We can prove that I sponsor him and when he gets formally accepted by the college we will have evidence this is where the money will be spent. So do ...

Which bank offers the best online banking in Vietnam, that can be used from outside of vietnam. Looking for something in English and not to crazy fees. Two I found that seem like an option are vietcombank and techcombank. I am no longer living in Vietnam from 2014, so need something to control from abroad. My wife is Vietnamese so opening an account in her name is not an issue. Reason formlooking for online option, is, that my in-laws are going to retire soon, and I want to be able to control some funds in Vietnam so we can either pay medical bills when needed, or give periodic money, without being burdend by high fees or exchange rates. I,m ok with once every few years bringing cash and deposit in Vietnam, but transfer from Europe in EU would be even better. Anyone have ad...

(See my "Short" history lesson if you don't know about the current currency situation in VN - it's after my question) My question: In September, I'm going back to visit family in the USA for a month, and I need to change well over 100 million VN Dong into US Dollars. Where can I change money for the least loss in the transaction? Because currently no banks will sell large amounts of US Dollars, the only options I can come up with are: 1) Buy US Dollars upon showing my airplane ticket. I heard about this from some colleages. I've tried this successfully once already, at Vietcombank, but they will only change to $500 maximum, and they keep a record, so it can't be done again. When I tried at ANZ Bank, they told me I would have to come back a week before the trip to change up t...

TNH - A little help, please. I'm soon to be arriving in Ha Noi on my first trip to VN. A couple weeks later I'll be going from Ha Noi to Ha Giang. I'm having trouble figuring out my best transportation option. Don't want to hire a private driver just for me, that's expensive and piggy. I am concerned that the bus will be cramped (I am very tall), is that true? I've heard about an "executive bus" premium service of some sort, but can't find any real information about it. I've read that the night bus is dangerous, but it's hard to know how much weight to give those stories. Thank you!

Dear community, I am a big coffee drinker but my fully automated coffee maker gave up last week. I wasn't worried, since I thought that Punto Italia is just around the corner to have it fixed. But I can't find Punto Italia anymore. Does anyone know either how to find Punto Italia or then, have ideas for good coffee machine repair. My machine is a Melitta Caffeo Solo. Thanks for advice, best, Fabian

So I've seen a lot of posts on here about people renting 3 or 4 bedroom, brand-new houses in good areas for something ridiculous like $500 per month. Admittedly these posts were about 30-40 months old. This may be a stupid question but is it still possible to find deals such as these or is it just that prices have risen since then? I'm guessing that if they are out there, then they won't necessarily be listed on your stock standard real-estate sites. And yes, I have looked online but it seems that to get anything decent you'd have to pay something in the realms of $600-$700. Any advice would be much appreciated.

I have a friend arriving on a flight at 10:30 pm in a few months. I'm going to meet him at the airport. What are the best transport options to/from the airport? I know I can take bus 7 or 17 there, but maybe a taxi would be better (but more expensive.) I've heard there's a lot of ripping off with taxis from the airport, but also that there are some where you just pay a flat rate and they take you anywhere in the city for something like $10. Anyone know what these look like, what company they are, etc.?
