As reported by Vietnamvisa.hk, those who wish to work long term in Vietnam and wish to obtain a Vietnam work permit should pay attention to new decree of the Vietnamese Government defining employment and work permit conditions for foreign workers in Vietnam. It is the Decree No. 11/2016/ND-CP dated February 3, 2016 which will come into effect on this April 1, 2016.
Please be advised that the Vietnam Immigration Department will be closed for Tet holiday (New Year Holiday) from February 6 to February 14, 2016. Though we are still accepting new requests, approval letter can not be issued during that time. All orders to us will be processed when the Immigration office is open again, from January 15, 2016. If you intend to visit Vietnam during this time, kindly apply for the visa as soon as possible to avoid the trip delay.
