Expatriates who wish to work in Vietnam permanently for a Vietnamese business/individual or a company with foreign investment are required to obtain a work permit, apart from individuals subject to work permit exemption.

How long is a work permit valid for?

The validity period of a Vietnam work permit is equivalent to the duration of the labour contract to be signed as long as the period is shorter than 2 years and it can only be extended/renewed once for another two-year term under the new regulations of the New Labor Code. If a foreign worker wants to continue working for the current Vietnamese employer after the extended work permit expires, they must apply for a Vietnam new work permit.
