Vietnam Missing People Search-Tim Nguoi Mat Tich

If your search is for a missing Vietnamese person, we can be of great assistance to you, depending upon how much prior information you have on the person or family you are seeking, most people can be found. It mostly depends on you. Vietnamese average citizens are industrious, honest, poor (but gaining in wealth with each passing year), and very much part of a collectivist society. As such, these inquiries must be handled with caution, respect, and discretion being of paramount importance. Laws sometimes that fall into a "grey area", can be harsh when broken. There is essentially no public record access. As a rule, these are not easy types searches and involve a hands-on approach, in the area your subject was last known in, often travel to distant provinces. Viet Nam is a very "family oriented" culture, and Vietnamese people are very helpful and cooperative in these matters. Without this help and abundance of positive energy, many of our cases would never have been solved.

Informal Note:Many services advertising Vietnam searches are based in the United States, Thailand, or Singapore not in Vietnam. Although we are based partly in the United States ourselves, our Vietnamese search team (in Vietnam) will conduct the actual physical inquiry. The emphasis is on "physical". These searches are not and cannot be done on the internet. We know what to do and how to do it. If you would like to speak with someone from our team in Vietnam feel free to email us, and we will provide you with a name, tel # in Ho Chi Minh City, and/or email address if you prefer

Legacies of War from the Washington Post

The system of public records in Viet Nam is nearly non-existent, and what there is won't be found on the internet as with America and some other countries. The exception is public telephone directories which are all land-line based. Almost nobody in Viet Nam has a subscription based cell phone service.They are prepaid services- "Pay as you go", no phone bill.

Other Records that are kept, are maintained, by various government agencies and the police. In Viet Nam, the police wield enormous power and influence over everyday affairs in people's lives. Having said that, they have at times been of great help to us- for a price .

In Viet Nam, every family household has a book called "so ho khau gia dinh", in which each family member's name, birth date, state issued national identification number- "chung minh nhan dan" (CMND)and where born, is registered with and issued by the local police district. This book is very important in Viet Nam and shows family relationships.

Obtaining physical "hard copy" proof of some event or other in the form of a document can be a daunting task. As with all missing person cases, if you have an old photo of the person, (no matter how old, or condition), it can prove invaluable. Like the old saying: A Picture is worth a thousand words, is very true, but a picture is not mandatory to a successful locate. Equally important, is our tenacity, and skill in knowing what to do and how to do it, accurate subject information, family history and having good luck. Please provide as much information as you can and submit it to us for an evaluation and cost estimate. Some things to provide when making an inquiry are as follows:

  • Persons full name and family connections
  • Persons date of birth (parts of or estimate)
  • Past addresses, how long ago & associations
  • Where you met, detailed situation background
  • Persons family history, where from originally
  • What their job was and community connections
  • Religious affiliations,other interests if known
  • Photographs of person, family members, friends
  • If in the Military, what branch, how long & where

  • Note below sample of a pre-1975 Viet Nam ID card, including ID#, (no longer valid). Most of the people we are searching for fit into these war years category, but not always. Please keep in mind the Vietnam War (which Vietnamese call the American War) ended in 1975 With each passing year there are fewer and fewer people searching. It is still possible to locate someone from these war years, but time is not on your side, This Could Be Your Last Chance. . On the back is a section for distinguishing marks or characteristics. This includes things like scars, birth marks, ect...If the person you are looking for has any of these you are aware of- this is also very helpful, especially if visible
