Good news!! Lawyers in Vietnam may be out of a job soon (at least for routine licensing matters).

The Government has just launched an online guide for investors on how to set up a business on Vietnam in 7 provinces including Hanoi and HCMC.

The online e-service provides a step-by-step guideline on where to go to submit documents; whom to meet; which documents to submit; fees payable; timing. It even guides investors on where to go to submit complaints if licensing is delayed or for whatever reason.
