Vietnam's Prime Minister, Nguyen Tan Dung, has agreed to a request by the Vietnamese Ministry of Transportation, Dinh La Thang, to extend the upcoming 2014 Tet, Lunar New Year, non-working public holidays to once again cover 9 days.

Normally, as per the annual list of official non-working public holidays in Vietnam for the calendar year 2014 (11-Oct-2013), and the revised new Labour Code (22-Mar-2010 and 16-Nov-2009), adopted at the third session of the 13th National Assembly (21-Jun-2012), and which took effect on May 1st, 2013, the annual Tet Vietnamese non-working public holidays were extended from 4 to 5 days, only.

However, as per the aforementioned announcement ("Official Letter No. 10525 / OOG-KGVX"), the upcoming Tet Lunar New Year non-working public holidays will run from Tuesday, January 28, until Wednesday, February 5, 2014, inclusively.

In the past, the annual Tet, Lunar New Year, non-working public holidays have on occasion (28-Dec-2011, 07-Jan-2011 and 01-Feb-2010) been extended, and in those cases, the extra day was compensated by the same number of working Saturdays and/or Sundays. In the present case, according to the government communiqué the additional non-working public holidays of January 28-29, 2014, will be compensated by Saturday and Sunday, January 25-26, 2014, being declared a regular working days.
