Expat package

Post Posted: Sat Oct 06, 2007 11:59 pm

Hi

I've been interviewed for a job in HCMC and it looks like everything is a go. However, I was asked to put together an expat package with number value and not sure what and how put to put a number on it? This is a foreign owned company wholly in VN and there is not an international office.

Can someone give me an idea of what would be a basic complete expat package and how much it would be worth? I've been doing research and it talks about indexes like danger and hardship...etc. Frankly, I have no idea of any of that and also the rent rate for a house/villa in HCMC is rising 1% a day. So in the end, I feel pretty overwhelmed with putting together a package that won't seem so unreasonable to the employer but not unreasonable for us either.

Can someone give me an idea of what to put in a package and how much would it be?

Thanking you ahead of time

It's really depending on the job and title. Can be between 5-20k per month and above. But bare in mind that you also have to compete with asia pacific citizens who are willing to work with local package.

5-10K USD is a very good basic monthly package I'd say.

About 60 million VND per month will get you a very nice house. Living expenses are cheap.
