VGP – The Ministry of Finance has issued Circular No.64/2017/TT-BTC on nationality fee and resident fee exemption for residents in line with the regulations of the Agreement between the Governments of Viet Nam and Laos on dealing with free migration issues and unregistered marriages in border areas.

The fee exemption will be given to those people whose residence are allowed  by the Vietnamese functional agencies and free immigrants in the border areas of Viet Nam or Laos before 1985.

Free immigrants within the border areas of Viet Nam or Laos from 1986 to July 8, 2013 meet requirements, including respecting the laws of the country of residence and not violating the criminal laws, settling in the country of residence with sustainable assets of houses and land and not being wanted or serving the sentences under their original country's law.

Free immigrants within the border areas of Viet Nam or Laos from 1986 to July 8, 2013 failing to meet these above three conditions as returned by Laos and accepted by the Vietnamese side also enjoy nationality free exemption.

Besides, people with unregistered marriages may get nationality free exemption after registering marriages based on each nation’s regulations and having desires to reside in Viet Nam’s territory.

Free immigrants within the border areas of Viet Nam or Laos after July 8, 2013 are not listed in the Circular.

The Circular takes effect since August 15, 2017 and expires when the Agreement ends.
