How to choose the right cage for your pet

To make your pet feel comfortable during your move, the  cage must have enough space for your pet to stand up, lie down and turn around. It must be constructed of fiberglass, metal, rigid plastics, weld metal mesh, solid wood or polywood. One cage side must be openable and must be locked carefully.

To find the perfect cage, simply follow the instructions below.

A = Length from the tip of the nose to the root of the tail

B = Height of legs from the ground to the elbow joint

C = Width of the past at the widest point

D = Height from the ground to the tip of the ears or to the top of the head, whichever is higher (ears must not touch the top of the kennels in animal’s natural standing position)

Then, you have to do the calculations below to find the good dimensions for your pet’s cage.

Length = A + 1/2 B

Width = C x 2

Height = D

Now, you are ready to move with your pet!

Moving during coronavirus from Vietnam to France, how to do?

Moving during coronavirus is possible, but it’s going to take a lot of planning.

CORONAVIRUS – You can go shopping, go for a pretend jog, go to the pharmacy… but first of all you have to stay at home to avoid the coronavirus, at least until the end of March.

But what to do when you have planned to change accommodation a few days or weeks after the introduction of the containment measures against Covid-19? Is a change of residence part of the essential journeys?

According to the French government, in principle, moving is not forbidden on the condition that it is motivated by an imperative. “Removals are allowed, but must be limited to strict needs. For example, the end of your lease,” says the French Ministry of Transport. “It is advisable to postpone your move if possible. Otherwise, you must have the certificate of derogatory move”, the authorities detail.

If there is no fallback solution, you can proceed with your correctly completed proof. However, you will have to organise yourself into a small committee, as groups of more than five people are not allowed.

Moving during coronavirus from Vietnam to France – Logistical difficulties

This means that you are officially allowed to move, but in practice it can be much more complicated if you use a moving company. The professional organisations in the sector have called for an “urgent” ban on moving involving direct contact between movers and clients.

“The moving industry unanimously notes that the working conditions of the employees do not make it possible to permanently guarantee the respect of barrier gestures”, affirmed the president of the “Chambre Syndicale du Déménagement” (Moving Union Chamber).

If several organisations have already called on “companies to suspend the part of their activity that puts their staff in direct contact with customers”, they fear that this will not be enough and want “to avoid any unnecessary competition from companies that would seize the opportunity to reclaim outstanding contracts in disregard of the health safety of their own employees”.

Faced with the situation, the Federation of Transport and Logistics – the third largest among road hauliers – called on Friday 20 March on employees in the sector who work in non-essential transport to declare their right of withdrawal from Monday. “Transport and logistics employees are asking themselves a lot of questions, but most of them are completely confused,” wrote its secretary general, Patrice Clos.

Moving during coronavirus from Vietnam to France – Staying in your rental

As Le Parisien, a French newspaper, explains: if you are tenants and you think you are stuck because you have filed your notice, nothing forces you to leave. You will obviously have to continue paying the rent, but it is possible to stay in your accommodation.

A real estate lawyer outlines that the government’s containment measures predominate the private law, and therefore take precedence over the rules governing a lease.

Leaving a dwelling can be even more complicated when real estate agencies have been forced to close. It has become almost impossible to make an inventory of fixtures and fittings.

Immigration in Vietnam in the face of the epidemic COVID-19

No country in the world has escaped the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, since the beginning of the year. Vietnam is trying to manage the spread of the virus as best it can.

COVID-19, information and rules in Vietnam

The rules of entry into the country are changing. We are doing our best to follow the government’s requests and will publish any changes in migration policy on this article.

On March 17, 2020:

For individuals wishing to travel to Vietnam:

  • From March 15, Nationals of the 26 Schengen countries and the United Kingdom are banned from entering Vietnam for 30 days. Also, foreigners who have stayed and/or transited in one of these countries during the 14 days prior to their arrival are not allowed to come to Vietnam. The access to Vietnamese territory has also been denied, since 5 February, to non-Vietnamese nationals coming from China (outside the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macao) or having stayed in China (outside Hong Kong and Macao) in the 14 days preceding their arrival in Vietnam.

  • Visas issued on arrival are suspended.

  • Please note that these measures are not applied to holders of diplomatic or service passports on mission.

For individuals already in Vietnam and holding a Visa or Temporary Resident Card: 

  • From March 16, wearing a mask covering the nose and mouth is compulsory in public places and/or places exposing people at risk: bus stations, airports, supermarkets…

  • Any foreigner present on the Vietnamese territory can at any time be subject to medical check and/or compulsory isolation for fourteen days at its place of residence or any place chosen by the government. Failure to comply with local health prevention measures and, in particular, a medical declaration that is incomplete or false may lead to prosecution on the spot.

  • It is possible to extend a Visa (business or tourism), Temporary Resident Card or Work Permit without leaving the territory. The visa will be extended month by month as Vietnam considers COVID-19 as a natural disaster. We strongly suggest people who need it to call an agency and we remind them that the extension is not accepted automatically. The steps are relatively easy: deposit the passport at the immigration office or at a trusted agency. The new visa will be issued within 3 to 5 working days and the price will depend on the visa, the length needed and the nationality of the passport holder.

COVID-19, behaviors

These new immigration restrictions are essential to deal with the complex evolution of COVID-19 and the pandemic that has already caused the deaths of 6,400 people worldwide. To avoid more and more contamination, we kindly ask you first and foremost to take care of yourself and protect others. We also demand you to follow measures outlined by the World Health Organization

  • Wash your hands frequently and properly

  • Maintain social distancing

  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth especially with unwashed hands

  • Practice respiratory hygiene: cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze and throw the tissue immediately

  • If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early

  • Stay informed and follow advice given by your healthcare provider or reliable sources

  • Travel as less as possible

  • Stay home if you are unwell; avoid close contact with people who are sick

 

For your information, people are called:

  • F0 if they are a positive case

  • F1 if they have been in contact with F0

  • F2 if they have been in contact with F1

  • F3 if they have been in contact with F2, and so on

In case they are one of the FX introduced above, here at the actions to take: 

  • F0 have to be hospitalized

  • F1 have to be in quarantine at the hospital

  • F2 have to be in quarantine at home

  • F3 and others have to isolate themselves at home

If F1 becomes positive at the second test, F2 becomes F1 and F3 becomes F2…

No more plastic lanterns this Mid-Autumn Festival

The Mid-Autumn Festival has become the second largest celebration after the Lunar New Year. On the first day of the eighth lunar month the country turns into a festive mood celebrating the clearest and fullest moon of year.

As well as joyful street parties, many would release lotus lanterns on streams and rivers both to make individual wishes and add to the celebratory atmosphere at night.

However, this year, the practice of using plastic lanterns will come to an end.

Joining the rest of the country in the fight against plastic waste, the Việt Nam Buddhist Sangha sent a circular to its chapters nationwide asking Buddhist followers to help in reducing plastic waste. The letter asked each and every Buddhist community to persuade followers and citizens to avoid using plastic lanterns if they wish to release them during the Full Moon festival.

“If we don’t put forward solutions, the effects of plastic waste will become severe,” reads the letter signed by Most Venerable Thích Đức Thiện.

This is the first time the Buddhist Sangha has sent a letter calling on its congregation to act on reducing plastic waste, in accordance with earlier efforts by the public, then led by the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources.

When Buddhists set lanterns alight, it is a philosophical yet religious act to remind oneself that he or she exists for the time being. You are enlightened, meaning your existence matters – it’s not buried in darkness.

“I set a light, meaning my mind lives in the moment,” said a Buddhist monk who declined to provide his name because he said it means the same for everyone, citing him would not make a difference.

He said he had been to several Vesaks, or World Buddhist Conference, where releasing the lanterns in the sky had taken place. But this year at the Vesak in Tam Chúc, in Hà Nam Province, the organisers decided not to do so. The participating Buddhists decided to light candles and release some lanterns into the lake.

“Enlighten the existence,” is both a form and a means for a person to be aware of his or her existence.

“Enlighten one’s existence is a prerequisite starting point for a path to ultimate relief.”

He further cited other writers and philosophers saying if you are not aware of your existence, it means you’re dead.

Lighting the lanterns is just a means. But if that means polluting the environment, then you can change to do something else that can send the same message.

First of all, you need to enlighten yourself from overthinking and forgetfulness.

Earlier this month, a student wrote to the President asking not to use balloons during the school opening day nationwide on September 5.

So no balloons were set free, and some schools even went farther by declaring this academic year to be the School Year for the Environment, with the school canteen stopping the use of plastic straws, bowls, cups, spoons and forks.

In the letter sent by the Việt Nam Buddhist Sangha, it states clearly that you are advised not to release plastic lanterns to pollute the water resources.

So the Full Moon celebrations will be less sparkling by the lakes or the rivers, but our water resources day by day, little by little get less polluted, therefore, people get to “exist” in a cleaner environment, which is the direct result from their self-awareness.

“Act now, it depends on you, nobody else but you!” reads the lyrics from a popular song children sing during the Opening Day of this school year.

Evolve Mobility – HCMC vs Hanoi

Did you know that half a century ago, the two largest and well-known cities in Vietnam which are Saigon now known as Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi were two different countries? One might think that these cities will be fairly similar as both are in one small country. But surprisingly, they are not.

Vietnam is not a big country, but it is stretched. Imagine the journey from one end to the other is a tiresome one that takes numerous days. Most tourists make this expedition with stops in several cities and, in doing so, are able to see the steady changes along the way. By the time they reach the other end, they feel like they are in a different country.

The capital of Vietnam is Hanoi it is the biggest city in the northern half of the country. Even with a small population, it is a frenzied city with an amazingly appealing layer of dirt, boasting abundantly of museums and more than adequate political presence. Hanoi has a slightly seasonal climate, frequently hot with rare months that can bring a surprising chill for the unprepared tourist. You should know that the capital of Vietnam is home to some of the finest food in the world.

Well, Ho Chi Minh City may not be the epicenter of politics, but it is the financial center. With an unsanctioned population the city is rising higher and wealthier, demonstrated by glittery new skyscrapers and gigantic cranes adding to the skyline each day. Even if the city is hot as hell all year-round Ho Chi Minh City is home to smiling people and with food for any appetite.

Here are some vital things you should do before you set out:

  • Practice with Your Pet: Taking your pet on short drives will let them get used to travelling. Make sure you put them in their crate every time. Take them for a walk where there are vehicles so they will be familiar with the sounds and noise. Don’t forget to reward your pet for good behavior and talk comfortingly to them.
  • Organize the Crate for Ease: Put some absorbent bedding, like torn bits of paper or cloth. Before leaving, freeze a small bowl of water, slowly it will melt for your pet when it gets thirsty and won’t spill. Securely close the crate but do not lock it for feeding or in case of emergencies. Make sure there is a bag of dry food for your pet for easier feeding. And lastly, attach your pet’s identification.
  • No Crate, No Problem: If you have no intention of using a crate in the car, make sure your pet rides securely with its head inside the window at all times. Keep pets in the back seat using a harness which you can attach right to the seat belt buckle.

Weather in Vietnam

Vietnam is situated in both a tropical and a moderate zone. It is categorized by strong monsoon influences and has a substantial amount of sunshine, a great rate of rainfall, and high humidity. Areas located near the tropics and in the mountainous provinces are gifted with a comfortable climate.

The weather in Vietnam varies greatly between north and south, however both regions experience monsoons. From November to April, the north is cool and dry, while May to October is warm and rainy. The central coast has a similar type of weather with cool, wet weather between December and February in the winter monsoon period. The seasons tend to begin a bit later in the south, which is warm and damp all year round, mostly from February to May, while the rainy season persists from May to November. The Central Highlands have a comparable climate to the south, but is slightly cooler and temperatures can range to freezing in winter.

Vietnam’s weather is as multifaceted as its landscape. Though the country lies completely within the tropics, its various range of latitude, altitude, and weather patterns produce massive climatic variation. North Vietnam like other Asian countries such as the Philippines, has two basic seasons: a cold, humid winter from November to April, and a warm, wet summer for the remainder of the year.

So if you are not really a fan of the snow and would rather enjoy a relaxing hot weather to go places, then Vietnam is a place to relocate. If you want some help on relocating try checking Evolve Mobility for some travel and moving advice. Just check them at https://www.evolvemobilityintl.com/

Travel Vietnam

If you want to travel around Vietnam there are a lot of ways for you to go from one place to another. You can take a wild ride on a motorbike taxi or try a pedaled cyclo or simply jet around Vietnam from more than 20 airports available. There is a wide selection of Vietnam transport that you can choose from. How you wanted to travel is now up to you.

With limited time, going from north to south by air is sensible. For some remote destinations renting a car or taking the train is the best choice. If you have the time but quite tight on the budget then taking the bus is the more practical way to do it. For some wild adventurer hopping aboard a motorcycle will be the thrilling choice.

Regardless of how you want to roam around the beautiful places in Vietnam you have to make sure that you always need to consider your safety first and try to be smart when negotiating. You also need to stay alert all the time to avoid instances of being taken advantage. It will also be good if you will plan your trip wisely. Know where you are going and how much will you be paying for your transpo, that way you will have an idea on how to budget both your time and money.

Must-have Documents When Moving Abroad

Moving to a new country is often an exhilarating yet grueling process. Not only does it include moving your whole life thousands of miles away, but it also means having to steer a lot of paperwork and red tape. In order to make your international travel a successful one, it is a must to carry all important documents with you. Here are some of the most important documents needed when moving abroad.

Passport

This document is the only most vital thing you’ll need when moving internationally. A government-issued passport verifies the owner’s identity and citizenship. Most countries do not permit tourists to enter without a valid passport. In case you and your family do not currently hold a passport and plan to move, it is strongly suggested starting the process to apply for one as soon as possible. Obtaining a passport can take a few weeks to a few months depending on the country of residence.

Visa

Aside from a passport, you will most definitely need a visa if you plan to relocate. A visa is an authorized travel document placed or stamped inside your passport that permits the traveler to stay in a particular country for a definite purpose and for a certain period of time. The visa is approved and issued by the country where you wish to live, work and/or visit.

Work Permit

If you’re moving to a new country for work, aside from a visa you will definitely need a work permit. Your boss or a representative of the company should be able to assist you with obtaining a work permit or at least tell you the process.

These are only some of the few documents needed if you are planning to move or relocate to another country.
