The government has issued Decree No. 137 on November 28, which provides guidelines for the management and use of fireworks. The decree specifies situations where citizens are allowed to use fireworks on personal occasions.

According to Article 17 of the decree, institutions, organizations, enterprises, and individuals with legal capacity are permitted to light up fireworks during public holidays such as Lunar New Year festivals, the death anniversary of Hung Kings, National Day (September 2), the Dien Bien Phu victory anniversary, and Reunification Day (April 30).

It is important to note that only fireworks that do not explode are allowed.

Fireworks displays will also be allowed for birthdays, weddings, conferences, grand openings, anniversaries, and cultural activities. However, for other events, approval from the prime minister will be required.

The decree will be effective from January 11, 2021. Both organizations and individuals are required to purchase fireworks from authorized factories and enterprises in accordance with the guidelines outlined in the decree.

Additionally, the decree prohibits certain behaviors related to the management and use of fireworks. Vietnamese law strictly prohibits all activities involving the production, trading, transportation, import, export, storage, and use of firecrackers and fireworks, unless specific cases are specified.

Furthermore, illegal production, trading, importing, exporting, transporting, storing, and using of fireworks and firework materials are strictly prohibited.

However, the decree exempts enterprises and organizations under the control of the Ministry of National Defense, that are authorized by the government to research, produce, import, export, supply, transport, and use fireworks.

Individuals can utilize fireworks produced or imported by the Ministry of National Defense or authorized organizations for firework displays.
