Hang made the statement in reply to reporters’ questions about the Czech Republic’s decision to suspend the acceptance of work visa applications by Vietnamese nationals at the ministry’s regular press conference on August 2.

She said the two countries are enjoying fruitful multifaceted cooperation, expressing her hope that their coordination in this work will make it easier for the two sides to promote bilateral cooperation in many fields in accordance with the traditional friendship between the two nations.

The Czech Republic has recently suspended the acceptance of work visa applications by Vietnamese citizens.

The suspension applies to the visa applications for long-term residence with the aim of either employment or business activities.

According to Czech Minister of the Interior Jan Hamacek, at present, the priority of the Czech embassy in Vietnam is to accept residence applications for the purpose of family reuniting.
