.To avoid delay, you should verify that the information in the database is current and complete, and make any updates needed. All information in the transfer-out must exactly match the information in the database. The administrative, technical, and billing contacts in both must list the name of an individual(not just a department) and include their personal identifying information. If submitting an application for pre-approval, all forms (including the authorization and payment form) should be completely filled out (without signatures or notarizations).

2. Transfer-Out Form

A separate transfer-out form is required for each domain name (FORM FOR CHANGING .VN REGISTRAR), which must be submitted directly by the Registrant (domain name Owner) or by the authorized administrative person who manages the domain name. The information on this form must be complete and must exactly match the data in the Whois domain name records. If the contact information for the domain has changed, you should make the changes in the database before submitting the application.

The authorization must be signed by the Registrant and include the name of the person authorized to initiate the transfer. Both the Registrant and the authorized person must sign the transfer-outform.

2.2. If the Registrant is an individual (a person), there is no need for the authorization if he/she is the administrative contact in the database.

2.3. If the Registrant is a company/organization, and the administrative contact is someone within their company, the Registrant can submit the package directly, but both must sign the transfer out form.

2.4. In most cases, the form package is submitted by the reseller, since the administrative contact is usually someone employed by the reseller.

3. Authorization Form

3.1. The authorization form may list multiple domain names (use the additional names attachment).

3.2. The person signing on behalf of a company must provide authorization for the transfer-out domain(s) using HI-TEK’s AUTHORIZATION FOR TRANSFER-OUT .VN DOMAIN Form (please insert Registrant’s Letterhead log on top of the form if possible).

Instead of providing color copies of the government ID (passport/driver’s license), you may instead prove identify of the person whose signature is notarized by having the notary public include a “Notary Statement” with all of the following information: 1) the type of governmental ID; and 2) the ID number; and 3) the ID expiration date. This procedure is optional buthighly encouraged to protect the signor’s privacy rights.

4.2. If an individual is the actual Registrant, the Registrant must provide a notarized signature AND include proof of identity (copy of driver’s licenseorpassport)ORthe Notary Statement as described in ¶ 3.1.

7. The “Form for Changing .VN Registrar” or “Authorization for Transfer-Out .Vn Domain” Form are valid for thirty (30) days from the date signed by Registrant);
