A little money makes anything really easy in Vietnam. :cool:

That said, have you considered just paying someone off in Vietnam to expedite the divorce? S$300 or so and you'll have it done in an hour, with officially stamped English transcriptions.


That's a good point... could readily be done.

I made my comments about records based upon my own experience. I entered Vietnam via Hanoi airport, where my passport was duly scanned into a computer and stamped.

I exited Vietnam on a motorcycle at a remote border crossing in the mountains into Laos. There were no computers. My passport details, and those of my companions, were duly logged into a humongous log book... I have no idea if they ever got into any kind of computer system to let them know I actually left.

Yes, my marriage was hand-entered into a local provincial "Registration of Marriage by Vietnamese to Foreigners" book. I swear it looked like a guest book you'd see at a wake or baby shower in the states.

don't declare rom time they don't know?



I don't recommend lying to the government as it is illegal. However...

No, has your girlfriend done anything in Singapore that would tell the government she is married? For example, has she applied for any pass from ICA or MOM and indicated married? If not, they have no idea. No one outside Vietnam will have any clue unless your gf / future wife has told them.


Thanks!

Truth be told, it sounds like she's hooked you big time and fleecing you left right & centre. Lot's of stories like this out there. You wouldn't be the first to be conned this way.

No offence, ZZM, but I'm talkin' about local guys here, I'm sure you realize that.

Absolutely none taken. :) I know of a few of those cases myself.
