VIETNAM: Online Work Permit Approval System Introduced for Foreign Employees
Work permits for overseas workers can now be directly applied via http://dvc.vieclamvietnam.gov.vn/. All such online applications should be submitted at least 20 days prior to the overseas worker’s due start date, together with details as to why any such position cannot be filled by a local employee.
Following the initial submission, the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) will approve or reject by email the application within 12 working days. Once all of the required documentation has then been submitted online, the official work permit will be issued within five days of the formal approval.
