About ASEAN QA Forum

About the Forum

The ASEAN-QA Forum will bring together HEIs (e.g. leadership, QA managers and students) and various external stakeholders such as representatives from politics, ministries, QA agencies, and employers, in an effort to learn from each other’s practices, discuss current and future issues of quality assurance and related fields. By doing so the Forum aims to find solutions, connect HEIs and stakeholders as well as to contribute to building trust between individuals and organisations. The ASEAN-QA Forum understands itself as a platform for HEIs and stakeholders of QA to build a community of practice based on dialogue and exchange.

  • Presidents and Vice-Presidents, Rectors and Pro-Rectors, Vice-Chancellors and Deputy Vice-Chancellors from HEIs

About Vietnam

Exchange Rate

Foreign currencies are not accepted in most shops, so it is best for you to change your foreign currency to the local currency, which is Vietnam Dong (VND). The current foreign exchange rate (29 August 2019) is approximately US $ 1.00 = VND 23,140. These rates are subject to market fluctuations so please check them again prior to your departure date. If you come to Vietnam with some foreign cash, you can exchange it for VND upon arrival at the international airport, banks or currency exchange establishments. You need to show a passport for identification and you need to fill out a form as instructed by bank officers. Also please note that many exchange places will not accept old or torn bills. Bring new and crisp bills in order to get accepted. If you happen to have damaged bills that no one else will accept, simply go to a bank and exchange it for a new note for a nominal fee. Credit cards are accepted by hotels and some shop, however cash is also necessary. There are now a number of ATMs accepting international cards. Please note that most ATMs charge a fee of approximately US$ 4 for use of international cards. For currency rate please check the link: http://www.vietcombank.com.vn/ExchangeRates/?lang=en
