NDO/VNA – The Government has issued Decree No. 121/2021/ND-CP on business in prize-winning electronic games for foreigners in Vietnam.

Accordingly, an enterprise doing the business is allowed to organise prize-winning electronic games at only one site licensed by authorised State agencies.

The players permitted at those sites are foreigners and Vietnamese people who reside abroad, legally enter Vietnam by using passports or international travel documents granted by foreign authorised agencies, and still have valid visas.

All of them must have full capacity for civil conduct in accordance with Vietnamese law and voluntarily comply with the games’ rules and regulations in this decree.

To play the games, they must bring along the papers proving that they belong to the permitted group; comply with the games’ rules and the regulations of the game organising enterprises; fulfil their tax obligations as stipulated by law; and seriously adhere to relevant legal regulations.

Besides, players are not allowed to use results of prize-winning games to directly make a bet with one another, or harm the security, order, and safety at gaming sites.

The decree is scheduled to take effect on February 12, 2022.
