Vietnam Public Holidays in 2021

October 27, 2020

According to Article 112 of Viet Nam Labor Code 2019, taking effect from 01st January 2021, an employee will be entitled to have fully paid days off on eleven public holidays (1 more day on National Day). Below is the detail of public holidays in 2021:


  • Expats receive an additional day off for their own country Nation’s Day and one day off for their traditional new year.
  • Based on practical conditions, the Prime Minister shall decide the day-off for the Lunar New Year Holidays and National Day instead of letting the employer decide. This is a new change in Labor Code 2019.
  • The specific schedule of compensatory days off (if any) will be updated as soon as there is information from the Government.

This is not a legal document. The information here is for reference and general guidance purposes only.

Kindly contact NVM to obtain qualified legal consultation for specific situations
