HA NOI (VNS) — Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has ordered that six categories of Vietnamese would not be allowed to work for foreign individuals and organisations in Viet Nam.

The decision is part of the regulations under some articles of Viet Nam's Labour Code applicable to the employment of Vietnamese people as far as working for foreign individuals and organisations based in the country is concerned.

Accordingly, as of mid-September, those who worked as military officers, soldiers, or as workers and technicians with the People's Army of Viet Nam and Public Security will not be allowed to work for foreign individuals and organisations.

State employees, those involved with jobs related to State secrets or spouses of those in such jobs would also fall under the restriction as per the Prime Minister's decision.

The restriction will also apply to those convicted for revealing State secrets or harming national security.

Also, people liable for prosecution in cases involving criminal responsibility or serving criminal sentences would be covered under the restriction.

As defined in the order, foreign organisations in Viet Nam include diplomatic missions, representatives of international and non-governmental organisations and press agencies. — VNS
