Process Serving in Vietnam
If you are looking for an expert Vietnam process server, you have come to the right place. Process serving is an act of communicating to a party (individual or business entity) about important (and possibly urgent) judicial or non-judicial matters in which they might be interested. This is done to enable that person to respond to the proceedings before the court, tribunal or another body.
Process serving in Vietnam is done by a process server, sheriff or by a court bailiff. The process server, sheriff or bailiff delivers the documents and then executes a statement or affidavit of service and in some cases gets it witnessed in front of a notary public.
Vietnam Process Servers

Vietnam process servers serve judicial and non-judicial documents related to civil and commercial matters under the authority given to them by the Code of Civil Procedures or pursuant to the Hague Service Convention (Convention of 15 November 1965). Service of documents originating within Vietnam and getting served within Vietnam are served according to Vietnam’s Code of Civil Procedures. Documents originating in another country and getting served in Vietnam, are served under the Hague Service Convention or via Letters Rogatory while complying with the requirements of Vietnam’s Code of Civil Procedures.

The Hague Convention is a multilateral treaty adopted in Hague, Netherlands, on November 15, 1965, by member states of the Hague Conference on Private International Law. The convention came into existence in order to give litigants and other interested parties a reliable, cost effective and efficient means of serving documents on parties residing or operating in another country.

Process serving in Vietnam can be complicated so choosing a reliable process server is essential to ensure the desired outcome from a legal action is not compromised because of an invalid service. Similarly, for non-judicial documents, it is still essential the documents are timely and properly served so any timelines and procedural formalities are complied with.
Process servers are important members of a legal services team. Their primary job function is to deliver and serve legal documents to people involved in court cases and other legal actions. Documents are served by delivering a set of court documents (called “process”) to the person to be served. Vietnam Process Server must serve the documents in accordance with the laws and regulations in the relevant local area of service.
A process server plays a support role in the legal and court system and in the commercial world. Process servers also provide several other functions. They file confidential court papers and transcripts and they retrieve and deliver other official documents. Enjoy increased confidence with your case by entrusting your international service of process to Stellar Konsulting. Have peace of mind knowing that your case is being handled properly by an expert Vietnam process server who has years of expertise in the field.
Method of Service

Personal service is the accepted mode unless another form is specified by the court in the state where the matter originated.

Alternate Methods of Service

The Hague Convention provides various modes of process service of documents such as by postal channel or by diplomatic/consular agents, judicial officers, officials, or other competent persons. These provisions are covered under Articles 8 to 10 and may or may not be allowed by member countries as a valid mode of serving the documents in their territory.

Serving the documents through the Central Authority (Article 5) is not optional but is binding on all the member countries. Services done by the Central Authority usually take a long time: 2 to 12 months. Note that the convention gives relief to the litigants if they have not received a certificate of service or delivery from the Central Agency even after waiting for six months. In such cases, the Court may, if it considers that a reasonable time has elapsed, give its judgment. Also, in case of urgency, the court may issue a provisional order or protective measure even before the six-month waiting period.

Service By Mail

Service by mail is possible only in states that have not objected to that method under Article 10(a) of the Hague Service convention and if the jurisdiction where the case case originates allows it under its applicable law.

Vietnam’s position on Hague Service Convention (Convention of 15 November 1965)

The Convention of 15 November 1965 on the Service Abroad of Judicial and Extrajudicial Documents in Civil or Commercial Matters (HCCH 1965 Service Convention) provides for the channels of transmission to be used when a judicial or extrajudicial document is to be transmitted from one Contracting Party to the Convention to another Contracting Party for service in the latter. The Convention establishes a main channel of transmission via a designated Central Authority, as well as alternative channels of transmission. The Convention deals primarily with the expedient transmission of documents; it does not address or comprise substantive rules relating to the actual service of process. The framework provided by the Convention is both efficient and effective – statistical data shows that 75% of requests are executed within two months.

Vietnam is a signatory to the Hague Service Convention (Convention of 15 November 1965). The department responsible for the international judicial cooperation for the purpose of Hague Service Convention is the Ministry of Justice of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam.
Vietnam objects to service under Articles 10(a), 10(b), and 10( c ) within its territory.
Vietnam’s position on Convention of 18 March 1970 on the Taking of Evidence Abroad in Civil or Commercial Matters

In civil or commercial matters, a judicial authority of a Contracting State may, in accordance with the provisions of the law of that State, request the competent authority of another Contracting State, by means of a Letter of Request, to obtain evidence, or to perform some other judicial act. A Letter shall not be used to obtain evidence which is not intended for use in judicial proceedings, commenced or contemplated. The expression “other judicial act” does not cover the service of judicial documents or the issuance of any process by which judgments or orders are executed or enforced, or orders for provisional or protective measures.

Vietnam is a signatory to the Hague Evidence Convention (Convention of 18 March 1970 on the Taking of Evidence Abroad in Civil or Commercial Matters). The department responsible for the international judicial cooperation for the purpose of Hague Evidence Convention is the Ministry of Justice.
Transmission of Letters of Requests
Letters of Request are first sent to the Central Authority of the requesting state, before being sent to the Central Authority of Vietnam.
The letters of request (formally known as Letters Rogatory) are sent by the requesting state via diplomatic channels to Vietnam’s central authority.
Vietnam accepts Letters of Requests written in the language of the requesting State accompanied by a translation into Vietnamese.
