The Vietnamese Prime Minister, Nguyen Xuan Phuc, after consultation with its key ministers, has officially approved in the Letter No. 65-19 / VPCP-KGVX to the Ministry of Labor, War Invalids and Social Affairs, the Vietnamese public holidays 2019 calendar which had previously been submitted by the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA).
Vietnam's Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) draft proposal of the annual list of the official non-working public holidays in Vietnam for the upcoming calendar year 2019, released early this spring (13-Apr-2018), as is often the case, contained 2 different options for the annual Tet Nguyên dán lunar new year of Vietnam.
A month later (28-May-2018), MOLISA received feedback from the 6 ministries it had consulted concerning these 2 options, and 12 of the 14 concerned ministries replied with a preference for Option 1, the one where the annual Tet Nguyên dán lunar new year of Vietnam would last 9 days.
A formal proposal along those lines was therefore submitted to the Vietnamese government last month (21-Jun-2018).
As per 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 and, as was the case 3 years ago (15-Oct-2015) but not in other years (21-Nov-2016, 12-Nov-2014 and 05-Dec-2013).
