SCOV Vice Chairman Nguyen Manh Dong said this activity aims to realize the Party's guidelines and State's policies and laws related to OVs through providing legal information, especially newly-passed laws that directly relate to OVs.

On this occasion, legal regulations on conditions for owning houses and land in the U.K. were also disseminated to support Vietnamese expats with necessary information in case of relocating their lives, thus avoiding risks.

Dong stated that his office wishes to continue receiving contributions from OVs in the implementation of the Land Law 2024 in particular and legal regulations in general.

The committee will continue to coordinate with the Hanoi Bar Association and relevant agencies to introduce policies and laws of Vietnam, and those of several other countries in areas that Vietnamese expats are interested in or directly related to their lives, he added.

Under the Land Law 2024, OVs have the same rights and obligations to use land and the same access to land as Vietnamese citizens in the homeland, and Vietnamese citizens and those of the Vietnamese origin residing abroad are eligible to own land use rights at home.
