The Labor Code 2019, which was promulgated by the National Assembly and comes into force from January 01, 2021, superseded the Labor Code No. 10/2012/QH13. Accordingly, on December 30, 2020, the Government promulgated the Decree No. 152/2020/ND-CP about regulations on the foreign workers in Vietnam and recruitment and management of Vietnamese workers to work for foreign organizations and individuals in Vietnam according to a number of articles and provisions of the Labor Code, amending and supplementing cases of work permit revocation.

The regulations on work permit revocation were abolished on October 08, 2018, but the regulations on revocation are prescribed in Decree No. 152/2020/ND-CP. This Decree officially takes effect from February 15, 2021. Specifically, there are 09 cases of work permit revocation:

  • Expiration of work permit.
  • Termination of employment contract.
  • The contents of the employment contract are not consistent with the contents of the granted work permit.
  • Working not in accordance with the contents of the granted work permit.
