According to the Ministry of Justice, because the Law on Vietnamese Nationality has been promulgated since 2008, before the date of promulgation of the Law on Citizen Identification. As the result, the Law on Vietnamese Nationality has yet to regulate that the citizen identity card is the paper proving Vietnamese nationality.
However, clause 1 Article 18 and clause 1 Article 19 of the Law on Citizen Identification regulate that citizen identity cards shall be granted to Vietnamese citizens aged full 14 years or older and on the citizen identity card, there is information about nationality. As the result, the citizen identity card is considered to be the paper proving Vietnamese nationality.
