Operation of NGOs in Vietnam

After Doi Moi in 1989, a program to encourage the national economy and business to open more to the world, the number of international NGOs in Vietnam increased and the types of aid also started to diverse from financial and goods for the poverty to humanitarian acts and other aspects of development. Therefore, in 1992 Vietnamese Law, there are several decrees, circulars, and decisions that were issued to regulate the activities of foreign NGOs in Vietnam.

The NGOs in Vietnam work on a non-profit (phi lợi nhuận) base but still has to apply for permission to operate, to establish project offices and representative offices, and to be under the regulation of the Committee for Foreign NGO Affairs.

With many favorable conditions and regulations on how to use and tax aid, around 800 NGOs in Vietnam have been established up to 2010, and the value of aid was approximately 217 million USD in 2006.

Working with NGOs in Vietnam

Some of the foreign NGOs in Vietnam only have project offices and they can move or close their offices when the projects are completed, so it is best to make contact with them through their website or go to the representative office in your country for more information. You can make donations or join volunteer work, but in any case, it is highly advisable to make contact in advance.
