Located in a commercial building in District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, our center provides up-to-date information to Vietnamese audiences on the United States, its people and its policies. Our subjects include American society, politics and government, economics and trade, foreign affairs and defense, education and the culture, as well as global concerns such as environmental issues and social issues.
Staffed by professional documentation and reference specialists and equipped with modern information retrieval technologies, we provide free Internet and access to high value on-line databases. The American Center provides continually updated information on current U.S. policy and legislation to Vietnamese government officials, academics, and journalists as well as U.S. Mission staff. Through our EducationUSA brand, we also provide comprehensive, up-to-date, and official advice on how to apply to study at U.S. colleges and universities – free of charge. Our professional EducationUSA advisers are on hand to assist you by appointment, or on a walk-in basis.
The American Center is open to the public free of charge. We welcome visits by government officials, academics, journalists, students, and other groups interested in information about the United States.
