Some objective causes should add includes: political, socio-economic upheaval; the COVID-19 pandemic affected labour exports; business receiving labour went bankrupt or dissolved; business unilaterally terminates the labour contracts because of objective reasons that are not caused by their labour themselves, that leads labours to return before the visa experiment; customers borrowing loans or customers' family members have a fatal illness; customers who don’t have the ability to work from 81%; other family members of customers are considered for debt settlement.

According to the Ministry of Finance, added articles have been ensured, as well as consistent with real life. Hence supporting customers to stable their life and pay loans to VBSP, besides making the inspection and examination of VBSP easier.
