It depends on how you read the question. There are three possible dates:2 September 1945 -- This is when the Viet Minh (the forerunners of the Vietnamese government) declared independence from France. However, the Vietnamese people were still under French control. (You can compare this to 4 July 1776 for the United States in that the Americans were still under British occupation when the Declaration of Independence was issued.)1 August 1954 -- This is the date when the French surrendered at the end of the First Indochina War and allowed North Vietnam to become an independent country. However, South Vietnam came under strong US sponsorship and quasi-occupation. Vietnamese today (and North Vietnamese at the time) characterize the South Vietnamese government as a US colonial government. Americans argue that it was simply a close relationship, like the US currently enjoys with Israel or South Korea. Regardless while this was the first establishment of Vietnamese sovereignty since the establishment2 July 1976 -- This was the date when South Vietnam was reunified with North Vietnam and is the date when all of Vietnam (ruled by the former North Vietnamese government) expelled foreign influences.
