VietNamNet Bridge – Many overseas Vietnamese, or Viet Kieu, have given up the plan to buy houses iand settle down here because they cannot meet required procedures.
Huynh Dang Hai, a Viet Kieu in France, said soon after the government released the decision allowing Viet Kieu to buy houses in Vietnam, he returned to Vietnam to purchase a villa.
However, he could not obtain house ownership certificate because he could not prove he was born in Vietnam. Some relatives and neighbors met the local authority officials and acted as witnesses for Hai. However, this was not enough.
