The General Department of Vietnam Customs recently dispatched an official document to northern customs authorities of Quang Ninh, Lang Son, Ha Giang, Cao Bang, Lao Cai and Dien Bien provinces, requesting the deployment of some solutions to support businesses to export agricultural and aquatic products to China.

Specifically, local customs authorities need to arrange officers to deal with merchandise export procedures around the clock for consignments gathered at border gate areas until Chinese counterpart offices close or businesses ask for change.

For shipments that have passed export customs procedures but have yet to meet standard, quality, traceability and packaging requirements imposed by China, customs offices shall support exporters to replace packages, classify and repackage exports and affix stamps of traceability at warehousing areas administered by customs offices. They may not change the origin, traceability and category of goods declared on customs declaration forms.
