Vietnam to launch automated aviation customs system

The single window and automated aviation customs supervision system is scheduled to open at Noi Bai International Airport in May, according to Hanoi’s Department of Customs.

The Deputy Director of the department’s information and technology division, Phung Quang Minh, recently said preparations were being geared up for the launch of the system with all airlines getting ready to make electronic declarations to the national single window system.

According to a media report, the percentage of cargo with information conveyed electronically (eManifest) has exceeded 95% and more than 90% of total cargo volume at the airport is automatically released for shipment to the supervision area.

The Deputy Director noted that the percentage of cargo with information automatically released for clearance had already reached 91.3% of total cargo volume as of 12 March, and the percentage was expected to reach 93-95% in May.

The municipal department said risk management would be used throughout the process, which would help improve the efficiency of supervision while preventing smuggling, trade fraud, and the illegal shipment of goods via international airports.

The department said the automated aviation supervision system would bring significant benefits to importers and exporters.

It added that the deployment of the system would help reduce the time for customs clearance of a batch of goods from 3-6 hours to an average of 15 minutes.

The system would improve the efficiency of customs management at airports as it enables the easy tracking of imported and exported goods and backlogs. It also allows for round-the-clock interactions between importers and exporters with customs officials.

For airlines, the system will promote their digital transition and modernisation of flight management towards international standards as well as increase their competitiveness and operation efficiency.

This was a bold effort in customs administrative procedure reforms to facilitate import and export activities, which would save time and costs for businesses, the department claimed.

To ensure the smooth implementation of the system, carriers must send adequate information about cargo three hours before landing for long-distance flights and 30 minutes before landing for short-distance flights.

The automated aviation supervision system has been piloted at the Noi Bai International Airport since the end of 2017. On average, the airport receives about 5,300 shipments daily.

Traditionally, residents in Hanoi had to pay cash to the treasury or bank for the registration fees for cars and motorbikes. Now, they can pay them online through the national public service portal, banks, and payment intermediaries.

As OpenGov earlier reported when registering their cars and motorbikes, locals in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City can pay registration fees online through the national public service portal, online payment channels of banks (Vietcombank, Vietinbank, Agribank, VPBank, MBBank, and BIDV) and payment intermediary service providers (the National Payment Corporation of Vietnam (NAPAS) and mobile wallet MoMo), without using cash or going to banks or treasuries as before.

Registration fee payers will have to use paper documents to complete the procedures at the related traffic police agencies in order to register their vehicles.
