Travelers new to Hanoi should be aware that while it is possible to arrive from many countries without a Visa, visitors are only allowed to stay for up to 15 days without one. The report explains that staying longer requires getting a Visa before arriving in the country and filing an application in advance will allow them to obtain a 3-month Visa for approximately $30.
While the report includes a breakdown of the weather year-round in Hanoi, there are two seasons that are heavily emphasized. The wet season, due to a Southwest monsoon, brings heavy rain every day and extreme humidity when the rain stops. In contrast, between October and December, the report suggests that Hanoi experiences ideal weather between 22 and 29 degrees Celsius every day.
The low cost of living in Hanoi is a major attraction for digital nomads, with estimates putting the entire cost per month for one remote worker at less than $1,000. While this rate will depend on many factors individual to each digital nomad, the report includes many suggestions for saving money while in Hanoi, such as leasing a scooter for $5 per day or purchasing one for longer stays.
The report also covers some of the potential problems remote workers encounter during their time in Hanoi, such as the low internet speeds which average about 5 Mbps, the low number of English-speaking locals, and the dangerous roads.
Though there are many reasons to recommend Hanoi, the report also explains that it is not always a family-friendly environment, with many tobacco smokers, hostility towards LGBTQ+ tourists, and some concerns about safety in certain areas of the city.
