PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE CONVERTING DRIVER LICENSE OF FOREIGNERS WHO WISH TO RUN A VEHICLE IN VIETNAM
Before converting the driver license of a
foreigner, please keep in mind
For people of foreign nationality, the following cases are
allowed to use the IAA International driver license
- issued by the USA - in Vietnam
* Short term Visa
granted by Vietnam (less-than-3-months tourist visa)
* Absolutely, the
applicant must have a driver license nationally issued in attachment to the International
license - and such driver license must be valid
For example: An
American must have a valid US National driver license attached to an International
* The foreigner
shall drive only vehicles of such class prescribed in his/her National driver
For example: a
Frenchman holding a French driver license for car only, upon using
international license, can only run cars (maximum under 9 seats) in Vietnam.
circumstances SHALL NOT entitled to use the IAA (INTERNATIONAL
AUTOMOBILE ASSOCIATION. INC.) International driver license issued by the USA.
* Those using a 5-year visa (Marriage Visa - Visa Exemption)
or a long-term residence card cannot use an International
driver license in Vietnam.
have their International driver license converted by the Ministry of Transport of Vietnam.
* Those not carrying
a National driver license (in addition to the IAA International driver license, a National driver
license is required)
For example, a
Chinese who does not have a Chinese driver license cannot use an IAA International
driver license in Vietnam
* Those having an expired National driver license
For example, an
American with an expire US driver license shall not use an IAA International
driver license in Vietnam, even though the international license is valid.
It is required by
the law that his US driver license remains valid
Those having a national Driver license for car only and an IAA International Driver
license for both car and motorcycle shall not
apply the IAA license to drive a motorcycle!
For example: 1 Singaporean holds a Singapore driver
license which does not cover motorcycle, although his IAA International
driver license applies to motorcycles. He shall not use the International
driver License for riding a motorcycle in Vietnam!
He must have a driver license issued by the
Ministry of Transport of Vietnam which applies to motorcycles so as to drive
motorcycles in Vietnam
* Citizens of Vietnam or people of 2 citizenships are not allowed to use
IAA driver license in Vietnam
For example, a Vietnamese who has a US-issued driver
license, must transverse it into a Vietnam driver license: he shall not use
the IAA International driver license (this IAA International Driver license
is only applied to foreigners in Vietnam)
* In the USA,
only two organizations approved by the US government to print the
transversion of International Driver license - they are AAA (3 A-triple A)
AAA -3A is American
Auto Association, while iAA is International Automobile Association. AAA is an affiliate of iAA.
The only one official
website of AAA is: aaa.com
The correct AAA
transversion of the International driver license originating in the United
States shall have a validity duration of 1 year at maximum - granting for more
than 1 year is absolutely not allowed
This is expressively
evident at AAA's main system: Click => http://www.aaa.com/vacation/idpapplc.html
