- The Vietnamese police check doesn’t state expiration date, only states issuance date. Some authorities may request you to legalize your Vietnamese police check before submitting.
- The Vietnamese police check doesn’t state the length of your stay in Vietnam (from which date to which date). It only says “No record” or “No record during residence period in Vietnam”. If you need proof of length of stay, the best place is entry and exit stamps on your passport.
- The Vietnamese police check doesn’t state addresses when you stayed in Vietnam. That is something you should acquire/have acquired via your landlord when you live/lived here at local police office. It’s called “xác nhận tạm trú” in Vietnamese, means “temporarily residence certificate”, or “Vietnam police registration”. It look like below. It only has legal value if printed out and signed and stamped by police.
- Identify which police check is correct one is IMPORTANT and it must be done by you. It would depend on the authority you would submit the police check to.
