The upcoming Tet will be a seven-day holiday that will start January 23, 2020, two days before the Lunar New Year. The Year of the Mouse will begin January 25 next year. Government offices and state-owned companies will close for seven days from January 23 to 29. Schools and other businesses across the country usually follow the same break as government offices. This option is one of the two seven-day options proposed by the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs last August. Under the second option, the holiday would have started on January 24, a day before Tet, and run until January 30, the sixth day of the new lunar year. But the ministry said this option would not give migrant workers enought to travel home. Vietnam got a nine-day break for the last Tet festival … [Read more...] about Vietnam to enjoy 7-day Lunar New Year break

On Monday the Southern Hydrometeorological Center reported that the tide rose to 1.77 meters at the Phu An Station on the Saigon River and 1.8 meters at the Nha Be Station on the Dong Dien River. This surpassed the previous high of 1.72 m set in 2017. Former deputy head of the center’s forecasting department, Le Thi Xuan Lan, attributed the very high tides to strong winds last week that caused the water level to rise in estuaries. She also pointed a finger at climate change. Since 1999 tide levels have been rising consistently. Lan said: "But this may not be the highest yet, because there are five more major tides to come this year. Of which at least one or two tidal peaks can come close to or break the recently established record." Prof Nguyen An Nien of the Ho Chi Minh City Water Resources Research Association said the rising tides in HCMC and the Mekong Delta are due to climate change and rising sea levels. Many provinces and cities in low-lying areas in the delta have seen … [Read more...] about Saigon braces for more record tides this year

A new South Korean law will bar citizens with a record of domestic violence from marrying immigrants, following recent uproar over a Korean man brutally beating his Vietnamese wife. The country’s Justice Ministry said in a legislative notice published Thursday that the new amendment to South Korea’s Immigration Control Law is expected to take effect in a year. The new provision will ban a South Korean citizen with a record of domestic violence, irrespective of when it took place, from inviting foreigners to the country for marriage. The ministry said the new move was prompted by the instance of domestic violence involving a Vietnamese housewife that happened in July.
