Work Permit Procedures and Requirements
Necessity of a Work Permit
Vietnam mandates a work permit for foreigners intending to work in the country for a duration exceeding three months. Employers are responsible for initiating the work permit application with the provincial Department of Labor, Invalids, and Social Affairs (DOLISA) at least 15 days prior to the foreign worker’s commencement of employment. Work permit processing times can extend up to five business days.
