This report "Measuring sustainable development goal indicator 10.7.1 on recruitment costs of Vietnamese workers overseas: Results of the Labour Force Survey 2021" was developed using data from the Viet Nam Labour Force Survey 2021. This is the first time the General Statistics Office has released a study on Vietnamese workers abroad.
The report results showed basic characteristics of Vietnamese workers overseas within the last three years (2018-2021). In particular, the report has shown that, on average, Vietnamese workers going to work abroad had to use the equivalent of 7.4 months of their first-month salary to pay for or cover recruitment costs for getting their job abroad in the first place. Based on the study results, the report has proposed policy recommendations related to Vietnamese workers overseas.
