Vietnam Pledges to Ease Visa and Work Permits for Foreigners

According to Thanh Nien newspaper, Duong Manh Hung - Director of the Foreign Labor Department under the Ministry of Labor, War Invalids and Social Affairs said in a conference in HCMC that the Ministry is working on draft proposals regarding requirements for foreign professional workers.

“It has been too strict when we require foreigners to have at least a Bachelor Degree and 05 years of working experience in their field to be able to work in Vietnam,” he said, adding, “We are also considering 02 proposals especially for workers from Southeast Asia, either removing Work Permit requirements or keeping them to the minimum.”

Hung said that he expects amendments on foreign labor to go into effect in the third quarter of this year.

In addition, “Policymakers will also propose favorable policies for employees being transferred to Vietnam from the same company abroad. Currently, they have to apply for a Work Permit just like other employees being recruited for the first time,” said Thanh Nien newspaper.

Hopefully, with this great effort, the policy will be adjusted in near future.
