In the context of current international integration, the need to employ foreign workers (or Vietnamese who study at training programs of foreign educational institutions) is becoming more and more common in enterprises in Vietnam. This leads to the need for foreign diploma recognition.
On April 15, 2021, the Ministry of Education and Training issued Circular 13/2021/TT-BGDDT on conditions, order, procedures, and competence to recognize diplomas issued by foreign educational institutions for use in Vietnam. (“Circular 13”), Circular 13 has replaced Decision No. 77/2007/QD-BGDĐT; Circular No. 26/2013/TT-BGDDT. One of the important contents of Circular 13 is the provision of exemption from diploma recognition procedures. As follows:
Diplomas issued by foreign educational institutions to learners are recognized for use in Vietnam without having to go through the diploma recognition procedures. In which, “Diploma” is understood to include: secondary school diploma, high school diploma, certificate of completion of general education program, bachelor degree, master degree, Ph.D. diploma, and equivalent qualifications.
The exemption from diploma recognition procedures does not include certification of diplomas; agencies, organizations, or employers are responsible for verifying diplomas in case of necessity.
Circular 13 takes effect from June 1, 2021.
