Cases requiring a certificate of work experience

The foreign workers may work in Vietnam in many forms. Each form requires different qualifications, work experience and skills. In general, most cases require 03 years' working experience in such positions and industries to be in charge in Vietnam or other respective fields abroad. Common forms of employment that foreigners need to provide experience confirmation to apply for a work permit in Vietnam include:

  • Performance of labor contracts;
  • Intra-corporate transfer;
  • Managers, executive directors, experts, technical workers;
  • Participation in the performance of bidding packages and projects in Vietnam.

Required information in the certificate of work experience for applying a work permit

  1. Full Company Information: name, address, phone number.
  2. Details of the person to be certified: full name, date of birth, nationality, passport number or personal identification number.
  3. Working time: it is necessary to clearly specify the duration of work from which date to which date (or at least to have month and year). For example: Mr. A worked for our Company from April 01, 2007 to June 01, 2015 (or from April 2007 to June 2015).
  4. Title/job assumed: clearly stating the position, title with explanation of the main tasks taking charge at the Company during the working time.
