Work Permits, Visas, PIT and HSI
for foreigners in vietnam

The government issued Decree No. 70/2023/ND-CP last year amending and supplementing certain provisions of Decree No. 152 on foreign employees working in Vietnam and the recruitment and management of Vietnamese employees working for foreign individuals and organizations in Vietnam. Decree 70 took immediate effect.

While some regulations and conditions for work permit eligibility and application procedures have been loosened, Decree 70 continues to prioritize the protection of job opportunities for the Vietnamese workforce over foreign nationals, which is in line with the spirit of Decree 152 and recent enforcement trends of the Vietnamese labor authorities.

What has changed recently? are work permits and work visas easier to get? What key tax and insurance regulations should you pay careful attention to? To discuss these issues, AmCham members are invited to a virtual meeting on May 23 to hear from a panel of experts.
