Foreigners working in Vietnam come from 110 countries and territories, mainly from China, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, etc.
Provinces and cities with the most foreign workers include Ho Chi Minh City (over 27,000), Long An (more than 5,600), Bac Giang (over 4,600), and Hanoi (more than 4,400).
According to a survey conducted by MOLISA, most Vietnamese enterprises have suffered a shortage of foreign laborers especially in positions of managers and experts. If this situation keeps going on, the projects’ schedules will be adversely impacted.
In 2020, the local enterprises and diplomatic missions of China, South Korea, Japan, etc requested Vietnam to facilitate entries for 20.000 foreign laborers.
MOLISA anticipates in the time to come, an increasing number of foreign nationals will return to Vietnam to work following the country’s successful containment of the Covid-19 epidemic.
Vietnam has closed its borders and suspended all international flights from March 25, 2020, and stopped issuing visas for foreign nationals since March 18. Only Vietnamese citizens, foreigners with diplomatic passports, foreign experts, or highly skilled workers are allowed to enter the country. Everyone has to be quarantined for 14 days on arrival.
