You have the right to set up a foreign-invested enterprise in Vietnam in this field.

The business line of retail is a conditional business line in Vietnam according to Vietnamese Law. Accordingly, apart from applying for Investment Registration Certificate and Enterprise Registration Certificate, you have to apply for a Business certificate for this field.

In addition, Hong Kong and Russian companies can be the parent of Vietnam companies. For this case, you can choose the form of company which is a Two Member Limited Company to manage and operate the company in Vietnam.
