In Vietnam, employers can ask about past, health, and criminal record but must get employee's consent before conducting background check. Specific regulations may exist in certain industries. Employers must get approval and work permit for foreign employees. No specific regulations on pre-hire reference, criminal or credit checks but background checks by third parties are allowed with consent, limited to verifying information provided by applicant.
