Rent apartment on tourist visa?

Can I rent an apartment in Vietnam with only a tourist visa? Can an English speaking foreigner work at a restaurant or hotel in Vietnam? I would like a job in Vietnam but I read that you must have 5 years experience or a degree. I have only taxi driver experience for that long, and hotel. THANK YOU!


Yes, you can rent a place without any special visa.

Yes, foreigners work at hotels although they usually only work at restaurants if they are the owner or friends with the owner.
