HCM CITY – The Việt Nam National Administration of Tourism has revoked the licence of a tourist company in Khánh Hòa Province for illegally employing Chinese nationals and other violations.
It also called on the Khánh Hòa Province government and tourism department to continue inspecting the Silent Bay Tourism Company on illegally employing foreigners.
VNAT had begun to verify if the company was obeying the law on tourism operation and discovered several violations.
The company falsified documents when applying for permission to operate outbound tours and did not make materials as regulated or amend its documents when there was a change of legal representative.
The legal representative of an outbound tour operator should have experience in the field and the company claimed Huỳnh Thị Minh Thanh had worked for four years at Thành Thành Company, a tour operator.
VNAT officials discovered that she had never worked for the company.
Silent Bay did not change the investment certificate when Thanh’s son Trương Đăng Vũ Thụy took over from her as the legal representative.
But the main offence was employing 64 Chinese workers without permission, 19 of them as office workers and the other 45 as tour operators and customer service staff.
None of them had a work permit while only one, a person called Yang Ziming, had signed a contract with Silent Bay. — VNS
