Work permits in Ho Chi Minh City are now being linked to the sponsor company’s business license and will be issued for either two years, or to the expiry of the company’s business license, if it is less than 2 years.  This will also apply to work permit renewals.

Business licenses are typically issued for a long duration, however, representative offices and project offices are issued licenses for a shorter duration.

Companies who may employees that would be affected should contact their immigration specialist for more information.
