According to Circular No.49/2018/TT-NHNN issued by The State Bank of Vietnam, Non-Vietnamese customers, with valid documents proving residential status in Vietnam (Visa/Residence Card) with at least 6 months will be eligible to open Term Deposit Accounts. However, the term cannot be greater than the remaining validity of the document.

The certificate of any account balance is to prove that you currently have a fixed amount in the bank. Thus you can only request this document when your Term Deposit is active.

As Timo is a fully digital banking service, the certificate of your Term Deposit is a Digital Deposit agreement sent via email every time you open a Term Deposit. In case you need a printed certificate with a Bank stamp, please request the Confirmation of account balance under “Document Request” via the Timo Web

With rollover Term Deposit, your money (deposit and interest) will be automatically renewed for another term.

Rollover on your Term Deposit is a feature that allows your Term Deposit (including the base amount and interest) to be automatically renewed at the end of the term. The renewed term will be the same as the original term length.

You can find the interest rates in the Term Deposit section of the app. At the Home Screen, tap Term Deposit, tap main button and select Current interest rate to see the interest rate table. This interest rate is the online interest rate from Viet Capital Bank and is updated every day.
