Vietnamese relations started as early as the 17th century with the mission of the Jesuit father Alexandre de Rhodes. One of the first Frenchmen to visit Vietnam was the Jesuit father Alexandre de Rhodes, who arrived there in 1620. While he was in Vietnam, he wrote the first Vietnamese Catechism. The efforts of Alexandre de Rhodes led to the creation of the Paris Foreign Missions Society, marking the involvement of Catholic France as a new missionary power in Asia. Meanwhile, the Jesuits continued their efforts in Vietnam.
In 1680, the French East India Company opened a factory in Phố Hiến. The famous Frenchman Pierre Poivre visited Vietnam from 1720. The Citadel of Saigon was built by Olivier de Puymanel for Nguyễn Phúc Ánh according to the designs of Vauban in 1790. In spite of these inconveniences, between 1789 and 1799, a French force mustered by Pigneau de Béhaine managed to support Gia Long in acquiring sway over the whole of Vietnam. The death of Gia Long, and the accession of Emperor Minh Mạng in 1820 severely strained relations between France and Vietnam. In an effort to reestablish close contacts, Jean-Baptiste Chaigneau was nominated French Consul in Huế.
