Businesses, individuals and tourists should definitely reconsider their plan as a recent proposal from the Ministry of Labour, Disabled and Social Affairs (MOLISA) to the government to extend Tet to 9 days this year. Vietnamese working for government agencies and private companies have days off from January 21 to January 29. The following week is the working day from Monday, January 30 through Saturday, February 4 to make up for a lost day from the week before.

If you travel to Vietnam during the above-mentioned period, you will probably need to apply for a visa from now on. It takes 5-7 business days for a visa to be processed by Vietnamese embassies abroad and 2-3 days in the case of a visa on arrival. Please note that all Vietnamese entities abroad (including embassies and consulates) observe Tet holiday, so no visa can be issued. You will not be allowed to enter Vietnam without a visa and you may have to cancel your flight and all tours.

If you do business with a Vietnamese partner, take the long vacation into account. Start the new year with a smile and greetings and avoid all the hard bargaining or bargaining. Most Vietnamese companies dictate how they start the first few days of the year for the next 365 days, avoiding all disputes if possible.
