Rundown of Vietnamese bride expenses

‘Vietnamese wife cost’ is often misunderstood by people and is taken as a term related to ‘women for sale.’ However, this term refers to an amount of money a man is likely to pay for dating services + for trips to a bride’s country which in fact aren’t optional because you can’t marry someone you’ve never met in real life.

Some may argue that the search query for Vietnamese mail order brides costs are super-popular, and it’s true, but we followed all the links and saw what we actually expected to see—ads of dating services and nothing but dating services. The question is, how expensive are they? The costs vary greatly from site to site and from agency to agency, but we estimated the regular prices considering the service provider that a user can choose.

Costs of online dating services

All the international dating sites where one can meet single Vietnamese mail order brides can be divided into a few categories:

  1. Global platforms with premium plans (OKCupid, Bumble, Tinder)
  2. Niche Vietnamese/Asian sites that run on a credit system (EasternHoneys, Asian Melodies, TheLuckyDate, Date Nice Asian, Asia Me)
  3. Niche Vietnamese/Asian sites with premium plans (AsiaDating.com, VietnamCupid.com).

Niche platforms work better for those who are motivated to find a Vietnamese woman just due to the narrow target audience, but we analyzed and provided the costs for all types of websites.

how much for finding a bride

According to surveys, for most people, it takes about 2 months to meet someone special on online dating sites like EasternHoneys. If so, we can assume that the cost of finding a special Vietnamese woman is up to $200. Still, it’s important to consider that the rules are a bit different when it comes to international dating—a person not only needs to find a match but also get closer before going to another country to meet their partner in real life. It usually takes a year to take a relationship to this level, so the total cost of services ranges from $800 to $1,200.

Cost of meeting Vietnamese wives IRL: How much for the trips?

Men can’t mail order Vietnamese brides and even marry a Vietnamese woman they’ve never met in real life—in this case, a bride just won’t get a K-1 visa. All applicants need to prove that they have a real relationship and provide evidence that they’ve met in real life within the two years before the application itself. Of course, men can take Vietnamese brides to the US, but it’s more complicated and much more expensive, so most prefer to go to Vietnam. We estimated the approximate cost of one 2-week trip:

✈️ Round-trip ticket (New York–Ho Chi Minh City)Around $2,589
🏩 Accommodation$644
🍜 Food$168
🚕 Transportation$154
🎡 Entertainment$168
*Prices provided according to BudgetYourTrip.com.

So, a man who wants to meet his Vietnamese bride will likely spend $3,700 on a 2-week trip to Brazil (most prefer to meet at least twice before taking more serious steps).

The total cost of getting a Vietnamese wife

Most men looking for Vietnamese brides online pay about $1,200 for online dating services like Asian Melodies, and as we’ve noted, most go to Vietnam at least twice, which costs most of them about $7,400. If both a Vietnamese lady and her boyfriend are ready to get married, a bride will need to apply for a fiance visa, the total cost of which is about $1,000. The cost of a marriage license isn’t that high—it ranges from $20 to $100, and as for the wedding, the average cost is around $20,000.So, the total cost of getting a Vietnamese wife if a man visits his woman twice ranges from $9,500 to $29,500 (depending on whether a couple wants to celebrate a wedding or not).

Do marriages with Vietnamese mail order wives work? Their husbands’ stories


Mike, Nashville

I was never really into marriage—though I didn’t need a family for a really, really long time until at my 40s I realized that well, I felt lonely. The worst part was that I didn’t have those 5 years to date women to find a special one—I’ve been dating them the entire time, and as you’ve probably guessed, it didn’t make me propose to any of them. So, I decided to meet Vietnamese girls—I visited this country in my 20s, and I remember that there were a lot of beautiful Vietnamese women who seemed cute, kind, and optimistic, and that’s what I was looking for in women for more than 20 years. I chose EasternHoneys and started talking with Vietnamese girls, and I met a special one in 3 months. I’ve already gone to Vietnam once to meet her, and I definitely wasn’t disappointed. If everything goes well, I think I’ll finally take that step, and I finally feel like I’m doing something right.

Chris, San Diego

I joined Asian Melodies mostly because I was just curious—Asian girls always seemed super-attractive to me, so I thought why not? I met a lot of beautiful Vietnamese women—seriously, it was like, wow, do such attractive girls even exist? However, I found more than just a hot woman—I wasn’t going to get married, but one day I met Huong and fell in love in probably less than 2 days. She was not like most western women I’ve dated—she was so caring and attentive, always smiling, sharing things, and most importantly, though we lived thousands of miles away, she wasn’t jealous. I even asked her about that, and she said she just trusted me. That was definitely a new thing, and probably I made me propose to her. Best decision in my life—that trust and support are still what our marriage is based on.

How to find Vietnamese mail order brides: Going to Vietnam vs. online dating

Basically, there are two ways to meet Vietnamese women who’d like to date a foreigner—go to Vietnam or look for Vietnamese mail order brides online. We analyze both pros and cons of these ways in more detail below.

Going to Vietnam to meet a wife—Existing options, pros & cons

People who are not into online dating have a chance to meet Vietnamese ladies in real life; however, in this case, a lot depends on luck. The thing is, there are romance tours to many Asian countries (we usually mention such offers in our guide and provide detailed information on costs and important aspects to consider), but we couldn’t find any tours to Vietnam from trusted international dating agencies.

So, the only way to meet Vietnamese women in real life is by visiting Vietnam. This is not the most expensive country, but round-trip tickets are not cheap. Moreover, the one who looks for a match in Vietnam is still likely to use online dating apps like Tinder to find women who might be interested in dating a foreigner.

✔️Trips to Vietnam are likely to work for:Trips to Vietnam will hardly work for:
Experienced travelersBeginner travelers
Men who have remote jobMen who aren’t ready to leave the country for 1-6 months to meet Vietnamese girls
Singles who want to learn more about Vietnamese culture before they start looking for Vietnamese women for marriageMen who aren’t ready to pay this much just for a chance to meet a Vietnamese woman who might be interested in dating a foreigner
Men who are rather curious about dating Vietnamese ladies then going to marry one of them

Looking for a Vietnamese bride online: Existing options, pros & cons

There are loaf dating platforms designed for Asian brides, including Vietnamese women and western men. Still, our experience shows that not all mail order brides websites are worth using—there may be pitfalls like hidden costs, fake accounts, low-quality services, etc. Moreover, a member can use them more or less effectively. We developed our own strategy of choosing and using such platforms, and here are the most important points:

❗️Choosing between multiple options is the only way to find the best dating site. Nearly all dating sites promise to connect men with real Vietnamese brides, and some of them really do it, but the thing is, trusting ads without considering other options results in problems in 80% of cases (unless you are very lucky). We usually indicate our priorities (mail order brides or just Vietnamese girls for dating), better services for higher prices or regular services for lower prices, verified profiles, etc., and check at least three sites to find out if the platform meets them all.

❗️Background check takes time, but it’s always worth it. Paying special attention to hidden costs and estimating the total cost that you’d likely spend on the site is always a good idea. Most reputable sites provide unregistered users with access to such information—otherwise, the site is probably not worth using. By the way, good promotions exist, and we always try to benefit from them. For example, sites like Tinder often have promo codes, niche sites with credits like CuteAsianWoman, TheLuckyDate, or EasternHoneys offer free vouchers, credits, discounts, etc.

❗️Using the best of the existing special features can help improve online dating experience. After we visit site, we move on to analyzing features. Good sites may have tons of features, for example, video chat, text chat, different types of Mails, etc. We test them all before we choose our favorite ones. For example, on CuteAsianWoman, we didn’t use call services (this is the most expensive feature on the site) but used video chat (that turned out to be more expensive), on Eastern Honeys, we used live chat instead of Mails just because it was easier for us to establish that connection in real time than to write those long letters, etc.

❗️Machining services work better than reaching random Vietnamese women. Good sites, especially those that are designed to connect men with Vietnamese mail order brides provide matching services or at least advanced search to find the best matches, and that actually allows saving a lot of time and money.

✔️Niche sites will work for:Niche sites will hardly work for:
Foreign men who are really motivated to meet real Vietnamese wives in the near futureMen who aren’t ready to pay for dating
Singles who want to find Vietnamese women for marriage who meet their criteriaPeople who are interested in meeting singles from different regions
People who are curious about dating someone from AsiaMen who aren’t sure if they are ready to settle down
Singles looking for people with similar relationship goals

What our expert think about dating Vietnamese brides online & in real life

adam cohen

‘Marriage migration is really common in Vietnam—Vietnamese women migrate not only to the US—a lot of men in South Korea, mainland China, and Taiwan are looking for a Vietnamese wife and really marry women from this country. It can be explained easily, though. 

The ratio of Vietnamese men to Vietnamese women is 3:5, so many Vietnamese girls just experience difficulties with finding a good match in their home country. Moreover, many young women from Vietnam believe that they can find confident, successful, and wise men abroad more easily, while western men believe that a Vietnamese girl is likely to be more caring, family-minded, and less demanding in a good way. In more than 80% of cases, the expectations of both parties are met, and that’s what makes Vietnamese brides so popular on the global dating market.Notably, the level of satisfaction among them and their husbands is pretty high—ladies note that they can finally get rid of the social stigmas, feel love, care, and support. No wonder the number of Vietnamese brides on the regular international dating sites and mail order bride platforms is overwhelming, but it’s crucially important to keep in mind that the more popular something is, the more scammers can be there. There are a lot of real Vietnamese women looking for foreign husbands and a lot of fakes—you only need to know how to distinguish them‘ — Adam Cohen.

Vietnamese mail order bride scam—How not to waste $20,000 on nothing

Dating Vietnamese brides online can turn out to be a good experience or result in many problems depending on how much a user knows about dangers they may face. The FBI notes that dating scams is on the rise, and a victim loses around 20 thousand dollars on average, so learning more about scam methods and ways to spot them is essential for everyone who’s going to look for Vietnamese women or ladies from any other countries on dating/mail order bride sites.

The verdict: Who are Vietnamese women for marriage for?

So, the marriage migration of Vietnamese brides isn’t something new, but the thing is, Vietnamese ladies can be perfect wives to some men, and not-so-good matches for other singles. They do have some national characteristics, in particular, friendliness and optimism, family-mindedness, and tolerance to other views and values. A Vietnamese woman is also likely to be calm and to have a gentle nature. For men who were always looking for these things, Vietnam will be a perfect place to find someone special, but those who were always looking for passion, emotions, and spontaneity in relationships can consider looking for a wife in other regions, in particular, in Latin countries.
