Is Work permit invalid if terminating the contract with employer?


The validity of a work permit (WP) in Vietnam is closely linked to the labor contract terms between the employee and employer. When a labor contract is terminated, the WP term is automatically considered invalid. This means that the employee is no longer authorized to work for the employer or in Vietnam, and they must cease working immediately.

It's important to note that the expiration of a WP due to the termination of a labor contract can also have consequences on the employee's visa status. For example, if the employee's work permit expires, their temporary residence card may also become invalid, which could result in visa violations.

To avoid any legal issues, it's essential for ex-pats to carefully review the terms and conditions of their labor contract and WP, and to ensure that they have the proper documentation and permits in place before working in Vietnam. If an ex-pat intends to terminate their labor contract or has any questions or concerns about their WP or visa status, they should seek legal advice to understand their rights and obligations under Vietnamese labor laws.
