Noi Bai International Airport Customs Branch introduces Customs procedures

As recorded by reporters, in addition to appreciating the efforts of the Customs and ministries, enterprises still raised many obstacles and shortcomings related to specialized inspections of import and export goods.

Ms. Phan Thuy Hang from Hoang Le Trading Company Limited, said that the deployment of automated system for Customs management and supervision helps to save time for goods clearance, but the specialized inspection time is still long, it still affects the quality of fresh products. Normally, for salmon, the best use is within 15 days, but the company takes 4 days for transport and 4 more days for waiting for the specialized inspection results. If the specialized inspection results are issued sooner, the company may improve the quality of products to the market.

Beef also takes 4 days for waiting for the specialized inspection result, but beef imports are more troublesome than salmon because the importer can not take the goods for storage while waiting for the results of animal quarantine and food safety. "This affects the quality of the products because the conditions of storage of goods at the border gate is not as good as the importer’s warehouse. In addition, the company must pay storage fees. Normally, the company must spend VND 40 million / shipment for storage and cold storage at the border gate," Hang said.
