Work permit

What is a work permit?

A work permit is a document issued by a competent authority that allows foreigners to work legally in Vietnam. The competent authority to issue work permits to foreigners fully meets the conditions prescribed by Vietnamese labor law.

Subjects granted work permits

Pursuant to Decree No. 152/2020/ND-CP on work permits for foreign workers entering Vietnam, the subjects eligible for work permits upon entering Vietnam include:

Conditions for being granted a work permit

Duration of work permit

The term of work permits is issued within the term of certain cases but must not exceed 2 years.

Renewal of work permits

The maximum term of the work permit is only 2 years, so if the external worker wants to continue working in Vietnam, he/she must renew the work permit. According to Decree No. 152/2020/ND-CP, the work permit is only renewed once and the maximum extension period is 2 years. A work permit should be renewed for a minimum of 5 days and up to 45 days before the work permit expires.

Work permit under marriage

According to the provisions of the Labor Code 2019, foreigners who marry Vietnamese and live in the territory of Vietnam fall under the case of work permit exemption, so foreigners need to carry out corresponding procedures to apply for a certificate of work permit exemption. The procedure for obtaining a work permit exemption certificate is different from the procedure for applying for a work permit, so foreign workers should pay attention to avoid confusion.
