Employees arriving with children may have concerns about how their families will fit in with their new life in Vietnam. Fortunately, many employees discover that Vietnam is a child-friendly environment with lots of opportunities to explore and discover many interesting things that Vietnam can offer.
Additionally, parents will come to recognise that all services that are of key importance for families are offered in Vietnam. Along with a full range of medical and dental services, families will discover that Vietnam offers a full selection of housing, educational and cultural possibilities.
One important thing to note is that the cost of private schooling in Vietnam is relatively high, and annual school fees can range from USD 10,000 to USD 25,000 per child per annum, depending on the school and the age of your child(ren). If you are moving to Vietnam with school-aged children, please discuss your circumstances with us.
The cost of private childcare (eg. babysitters, nannies) is relatively low in Vietnam.
