The Bureaucracy Hitch
For foreigners, the laws of Vietnam do not actually provide marriages between two non-Vietnamese citizens, except one of the two foreigners is having a permanent residence permit or temporary residence permit in Vietnam. That would be devastating to both of them. Also, all required documents should be translated into Vietnamese.
A non-Vietnamese citizen seeking to get married to a Vietnamese national may submit his/her required documents in person or by mail to the Embassy of Vietnam for marriage registration and authentication of the papers before taking them to Vietnam for more procedures. Lots of documents need to be submitted. Such as certificate of marital status, health certificate, copies of passports and visas, authenticated birth certificate and for those who have previously married, they require a certified copy of the divorce decree.
After which you have to wait for everything to be processed. Eventually, you and your partner can finally get married. Obviously, patience is also part of the process. However, living together permanently may take years to process.
