In Vietnam, divisional practice is fairly flexible. Specifically, one or more divisional applications can be filed: (1) in response to a lack of unity rejection; and/or (2) at any time for any reason (e.g., voluntary divisionals are permitted). The specification of a divisional application must not go beyond the original specification of the parent application. In other words, no new matter can be added in a divisional application.
