Regulations on exit of judgment debtors clarified

Updated: 14:22’ - 19/06/2019
Vietnamese citizens who have not yet fulfilled their civil judgment execution obligations would not be allowed to leave the country.

It is proposed by the Ministry of Justice in a draft decree revising Decree 62 of 2015, detailing the Law on Execution of Civil Judgments.

Meanwhile foreign judgment debtors who have not yet fulfilled their civil judgment execution obligations might be suspended from exit if so requested by judgment creditors. The exit suspension duration would not exceed three years and might be extended.

As for institutional debtors, their at-law representatives would be suspended from exit in case of changing at-law representatives.

For each specific case, the head of the civil judgment enforcement agency in charge of the case would send a judgment enforcement decision, in case the judgment debtor is a Vietnamese citizen, or an exit suspension decision, in case the debtor is a foreigner, to the immigration agency.

According to Deputy Minister of Justice Dang Hoang Oanh, these regulations would, on the one hand,  reduce administrative procedures for civil judgment enforcement agencies and enforcers and, on the other hand, help  judgment debtors be more aware of their obligations.- (VLLF)
