For imported goods, the average time from declaration registration to customs clearance and release reduces by 3 hours 38 minutes; for export goods shortens 40 hours and 10 minutes.

The average time from registration of declarations to be permitted to be brought back for storage decreases by more than 11 hours.

According to HCM City Customs Department, the department’s branches have their own specific characteristics and processed customs procedures for many different regimes and goods subject to specialized inspection by ministries and sectors. In addition, the department manages large-scale area including border gates and outside border gates, so the customs clearance time is consistent with the actual reality of the department.

Every week, at the headquarters of the branch office or the premise of the customs declarant, the Customs office discusses and remove difficulties for enterprises.
