The guidance—Official Letter 1882/TTGSNH11 (17 June 2015)—provides the State Bank’s position concerning:

  • The FATCA reporting deadline (requests for an automatic 90-day extension to be filed by 29 June 2015)
  • A waiver for filing Form 8966 electronically, in hardship cases, if requested by 13 August 2015
  • The reporting format

The guidance also requires that foreign branches of foreign banks in Vietnam not report directly to their parent banks or foreign partners prior to approval of the State Bank.
