The Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) has received feedback from the ministries it consulted last April concerning the 2 options contained in the draft annual list of the official non-working public holidays in Vietnam for the upcoming calendar year 2019, and 12 of the 14 concerned ministries have replied with a preference for Option 1, the one where the annual Tet Nguyên dán lunar new year of Vietnam would last 9 days.

Last April (13-Apr-2018), Vietnam's Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) had issued a draft containing its proposed annual list of the official non-working public holidays in Vietnam for the upcoming calendar year 2019, with, as is often the case, 2 different options being drafted for the annual Tet Nguyên dán lunar new year of Vietnam.

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 2 years ago (15-Oct-2015) but not in other years (21-Nov-2016, 12-Nov-2014 and 05-Dec-2013), the aforementioned MOLISA draft list of Vietnamese public holidays for 2019, suggests a swap of weekend days for additional public holidays in Vietnam during the Tet 2019, contrary to what was done last year (15-Dec-2017, 09-Dec-2017, 24-Nov-2017, 20-Oct-2017, 29-Sep-2017).

After this initial unofficial decision decision we can expect an official approval of the aforementioned list of the official non-working public holidays in Vietnam for the upcoming calendar year 2019, in November 2018.
