Title Vietnam: 1. Is there information that would generally support, or not support, the assertion that the situation in Vietnam has become worse for homosexual men in recent years (say since 2007 when VNM32466 was prepared)? 2. Has there been any relevant change to Vietnamese law since VNM32466 was prepared? 3. Are there any reasonably up to date reports of discrimination, especially with regard to employment or other opportunities to earn a livelihood, against homosexuals in Vietnam? 4. Is there evidence of any variation with regard to the treatment of homosexuals between the north and south, or between provinces? 5. What are the general requirements for service in the Vietnamese army? To what extent, if any, does that depend on whether the person has tertiary qualifications? If tertiary qualifications can make a person exempt, does that include tertiary qualifications obtained outside Vietnam?
