The Vietnamese government has announced its mandatory semiannual reporting deadline for foreign workers will be July 5, 2023.

Key Points:

  • Employers who sponsor employees must report its use of foreign workers to Vietnamese authorities by July 5, 2023.
  • The report must include the use of foreign workers from Dec. 15, 2022, to June 14, 2023.
  • Failure to submit this reporting requirement can result in fines for the employer and a possible delay in obtaining future work permit approvals.

Additional Information: Foreign nationals whose work permits were still pending as of Dec. 14, 2022, do not need to be included in the report.

BAL Analysis: Companies should ensure that they submit their semiannual report before the deadline to avoid complications or government fines.
