Many policies on import and export, transport, etc. come into force from March 21st to 31st, 2019.

According to the Circular, the General Department of Vietnam Customs shall carry out an inspection and consider granting the application for customs priority within 30 days from the day on which the satisfactory application is received.

For complicated cases that require opinions from relevant ministries, the inspection period may be expanded but shall not exceed 30 days.

The inspection includes document inspection and site inspection.
