9:53:57 AM | 12/29/2020

Regarding origin declaration, based on the statement of origin, the General Department of Vietnam Customs guided provincial/municipal customs departments to uniformly implement some contents.

Accordingly, the General Department required local customs agencies to comply with instructions in Official Dispatch 6464/TCHQ-GSQL dated October 5, 2020.

In case the proof of EU/European Union origin declaration, added with the specific name of a European country, does not affect the validity of the proof of origin of goods.

In case the proof of origin only states the European country of origin, the proof of origin shall be rejected in accordance with regulations and send a report to the General Department of Customs for notification to European competent authorities.
