The Viet Nam Customs issued a document to ask relevant ministries and agencies at these international seaports to deal with information on the Viet Nam National Single Window for 24/24 hours a day since 9.00 am on May 6, 2015.

The national one-stop-shop customs mechanism was officially piloted at Hai Phong international seaport in November 2014.

The application of the national one-stop-shop customs portal in customs procedures will help local businesses to save significant time and costs in their import, export and international shipping activities.  This will help them increase their trade revenue and foster administrative reform in local government agencies.
