Where is the application for a work permit submitted?
Currently, to apply for a work permit, you can submit it directly at the office of the Department of Labor, War Invalids and Social Affairs in the province where the worker directly works. In some cases, it will have to be submitted to the Employment Department of the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs.
How much money for a work permit?
The fee for applying for a work permit in each province will be different. Normally, the fee ranges from 400,000 VND to more than 1 million VND.
For foreigners, work permits will be paid by the employer to the state agency.
The licensing procedures and documents may be quite simple at first but when you start working, you will encounter many difficulties. That's why many units decide to hire the service of making work permits for foreigners instead of doing it themselves.
An experienced and professional team along with a clear working process in the fast and professional period of time, everything will be guaranteed without any strengths.
How long is the work permit period?
The term of a work permit is usually no more than 2 years. It depends on several factors such as the duration of the employment contract. In the case of the end of 2 years, the employer will have to continue to make dossiers and apply for a permit to be extended. Each employee will be allowed a maximum extension once more time. At the end of the extension period, you will have to apply for a new certificate.
