Hi, I need to get a South African Police Clearance here in Hanoi. Could someone please explain the process. Do I need my residency card first? or does that not matter. I am so confused and my company, unfortunately, isn't giving me enough information I need this done for my work permit. I have only a 3-month business visa so I need it to be a quick procedure.
Any solutions to hair loss? I read the previous messages about hair loss. But is there a solution? I've been here for two months and I've lost almost half of my hair. I take hair loss pills. Hair loss shampoo & conditioner. I'm definitely not stressed. I keep a hat on when it's sunny. I'm relatively healthy. But my hair keeps falling out, EVERYWHERE. Thanks

I am have been using the same Vietttel sim card number for 3 years now and have linked my passport to my mobile number just before 24/4/18 law came into force. I am pretty sure I also paid a fee to register the number to my name for a year too. But I am going to be out of Vietnam for 2 to 3 months now till My 2019 and wiithout roaming (it doesn't seem to work). I just want to ask if anyone has experience of how long they can stay out of the Vietnam and then return to Vietnam and still have their sim card working? I guess it is 60 days till deactivation? I was out for 56 days in 2018 and it still worked on return. Or is it 90 days? I topped my sim ccard up on 27/2 in Vietnam.
So, the word on the street is that Sedona suites has a basketball court. Which is pretty sweet as I like basketball and live right around the corner. Problem= I couldn't (or more specifically my Vietnamese speaking companion) convince the surly security guard to let me in, to have a go. Bummer. Does anyone live there, or have any contacts at Sedona, and would be willing to get me in?? That would pretty well make my day! :) -Ryan
Hi there! I am moving to Hanoi in June with my husband, and I will be about 7.5 months pregnant at that point. I was hoping to have a home birth with a midwife, but I'm not finding a whole lot of info on that just from googling around. Are there midwives who make house calls in Hanoi? If so, where can I find that information? Thanks in advance! Sarah
Hi, We have to move into a smaller apartment. A 1 bedroom apartment is fine but may not have enough space for our earthly belongings, materials and some equipment. This is after I have sold off surplus shelves etc. already. Is there a place in Hanoi where it is possible to safely store some boxes?
Does anyone know anyone that does home massages...? I feel so relaxed at my home and hate the hassle of going out just to then get back into a cab, and have to contend with the hassle of going home... They do it all the time in other parts of the east... any where here?
Hi TNHers, Aussie expat in need of dental work. I’m TERRIFIED. Embarrassingly, I haven’t been to a dentist in years due to a phobia...last time I went in Australia I had my teeth cleaned and burst out crying and couldn’t stop.
We wish to send two suitcases of about 20 kilos each from our accommodation in Hoi An to a hotel in Hanoi in less than three days, while we fly with only hand luggage to HaiPhong, cruise Ha Long and bus back to Hanoi. Can ERS help, please?
