New Issue of Vietnam Briefing: Human Resources for Foreigners

Posted by Reading Time: 2 minutes

Aug. 31 – The new issue of Vietnam Briefing Magazine, titled Human Resources for Foreigners in Vietnam, is out now and immediately available as a complimentary PDF download on the Asia Briefing Bookstore.

A Vietnamese entity is permitted to recruit foreign workers in order to work as managers, executive directors and experts where local hires are not yet able to meet production and business requirements. And, unlike in certain other Asian countries, Vietnamese representative offices are also able to hire staff directly.

In this issue of Vietnam Briefing, we take a look at foreign workers in Vietnam: how to hire, the legal obligations a company bears (including withholding and paying personal income tax and social insurance), and finally a common dilemma – the housing situation.

In this issue:

  • Hiring Foreign Staff to Work in Vietnam
  • Taxes and Social Security for Foreign Workers
  • Housing for Foreigners in Vietnam

Human Resources for Foreigners in Vietnam is out now and temporarily available as a complimentary PDF download on the Asia Briefing Bookstore.
