2. Important notes in the process of recruiting foreign teachers in Vietnam
Submitting the work permit for foreigners
To be eligible to work in Vietnam, foreign teachers need to hold a foreign work permit. According to Vietnamese law, applying for a work permit for foreign teachers is classified as the procedure for granting a work permit for experts.
The process of applying for a permit for foreign workers includes two steps:
Step 1: Apply for written approval at the Provincial/City Committee. Working time is about 21 days.
Step 2: After receiving the approval letter, it is necessary to submit a work permit. Working time is about seven days.
Reading carefully the employment contract
Non-contractual issues are almost always impossible to renegotiate. Therefore, when signing a contract, you should read the contract carefully, paying attention to mandatory tasks, the number of days to sign the contract, the number of lessons, and the agreements and regulations related to Vietnamese culture to limit unexpected incidents.

Therefore, you should ask about this before agreeing to a trial lesson because many English institutions take advantage of this to get teachers to teach their students for free while still making a profit from the students.
However, with reliable English language schools or institutions, you should prepare well and show all your abilities and skills in the trial lessons. It is an important criterion that determines whether you get the job or not.
