Khanh Hoa Province authorities Tuesday slapped a fine of VND80 million (US$3,590) on Silent Bay Travel and Trading Company for multiple violations, including illegally employing 64 Chinese nationals.
Tran Son Hai, deputy chairman of the province people’s committee, said the company had organized tours for more than 6,000 tourists in Nha Trang between February and May this year but did not preserve the relevant documents.
Silent Bay was also found employing 64 Chinese workers without work permits.
The company is now banned from hiring foreign workers for three months.
Following a check in June, Khanh Hoa authorities had banned the company from organizing tours for foreign tourists and decided to deport the 64 workers.
