We need your help!
My husband, our son and I have been living in Vietnam for 3 years, our home is here, we have 2 dogs, our 5 year old goes to a local school, this is our home.
2 weeks ago, due to illegal immigrants driving into Vietnam and therefore new COVID cases reported, the Vietnam government gave 10 days notice before changing the Visa rules.
By the time we got the news we had about 4 days to either pay for the last available visa option or leave! Neither option was affordable as we have already spent all of our savings on our Visa renewals which were triple the normal price for the last 1.8 years!
We can't stay, we can't leave.
Before COVID, as with many, many other people, we had everything sorted. Our lives were running smoothly, we had savings and were achieving goals while raising our son in the best possible way we knew how. Because we live abroad though, we didn't receive any sort of financial relief from our countries governments, so all our savings and anything we earnt, went like sand through our fingers, on raises prices, fees etc. It's been painful and now has become an emergency.
So, this is the first time I've ever done anything like this, we've exhausted every other avenue, the stress and worry is overwhelming and we are just praying for a miracle now.
I do not know if anyone will actually see this message but we are trying to raise 4000USD for the only visa option left which will last us 1 year, this costs less than travel back to our country.
