New Requirements for Permanent Residency in Hanoi
Jan. 19 – A new draft of the Capital Law will place stricter requirements for foreigners applying for permanent residency in Hanoi.
Applicants will need to show proof of holding a legal job with a salary double the city’s average minimum in addition to maintaining temporary residency in city continuously for at least five years instead of just one year previously.
Hanoi’s urban districts place average salary at VND980,000 (US$53.08) reports Thanh Nien News. Employees without temporary or permanent residency in the capital city will have to obtain a license from the Department of Labor, War Invalids and Social Affairs to be able to work.
The Capital Law will also give more autonomy for Hanoi authorities by allowing them to issue laws different from the government but within the national constitution.
