The General Department of Vietnam Customs (GDVC) has directed local customs departments to strengthen the management of imported cars under the gift scheme.
Customs requests importers to fully fill in the application form to import car under gift scheme in accordance with the provisions in Point a, Clause 1, Article 4 of Circular 143/2015 dated September 11, 2015 of the Ministry of Finance.
If importers do not fully provide information, the application for car imports will not be accepted.
The GDVC requires if there is any suspected sign about the relationship between the giver and the recipient, the recipient must submit documents proving their relationship.
If the documents are submitted fully and are eligible for import, the import permit will be issued.
If the documents are not eligible for import, the import permit will not be issued.
The GDVC also directs if documents show signs of fake documents, and the regular import of car under gift scheme according to the prescribed quantity, they must be reported to the GDVC for an investigation.
After the import permit is issued, all relevant documents are copied and transferred to the tax department for customs valuation.
Local customs departments must direct their customs branches to conduct physical inspections for vehicles to determine conformity between the imported vehicle and the import permit and related documents in the customs dossier.
If importers are allowed to bring vehicle into storage waiting for the inspection results of registry office customs branches must supervise the vehicle within 30 days from the date of bringing vehicle into storage, and check results issued by specialised management agencies on the National Single Window.
When the inspection results are issued, Customs branches must require importers to make additional declarations if necessary and implement customs clearance.
Branches’ heads and officials, who are in charge of supervising, must request importers go through customs clearance procedures.
If the customs declarant does not carry out customs procedures within 30 days of bringing the vehicle into storage, the customs branches, where the declaration form is registered, will inspect the vehicle. If the vehicle is not stored at a registered place or has been sold, the importer will be handled in accordance with the law.
Customs branches must carry out customs procedures, customs valuation and price rulings for cars imported under gift scheme in line with regulations on relevant legal documents and direction from the GDVC.
In addition, the GDVC asks local customs department to review the granting of permits for vehicles imported under the gift scheme and inspect the performance of import procedures.
