HA NOI (VNS) — A new automated customs system which is able to deal with declarations within three seconds became operational on April 1, according to the Customs of Viet Nam under the Ministry of Finance.

Customs departments in Ha Noi and Hai Phong City, began applying the Viet Nam Automated Cargo and Port Consolidated System/Viet Nam Customs Information System (VNACCS/VCIS), with the customs agency in HCM City due to adopt the system from May 15.

Deputy Director General of the Customs of Viet Nam Vu Ngoc Anh said via VNACCS/VCIS that businesses could make customs declarations at anytime and from any location to save time and paper.

The system aims to facilitate trade and investment activities, improve Viet Nam's competitiveness and improve the State's management of customs, he stated.

After a three-month trial that kicked off in November last year, up to 18,196 enterprises have registered to join the system, and 10,154 have run it on a trial basis.
