THE PROCEDURE OF CUSTOMS PROCEDURES WHEN IMPORTING NON-MERCHANT GOODS BY EXPRESS DELIVERY

Tet (Vietnamese Lunar new year) is an opportunity for everyone to gather and give each other meaningful gifts. Therefore, gifts are increasingly being modified and innovated, from handmade goods, organic goods (organic) to limited quantity goods and imported goods. Many individuals and businesses have taken advantage of internet age to buy directly from foreign websites such as Amazon, Alibaba, and sellers’ websites, then using courier services to transport goods to Vietnam (for example DHL, Fedex, TNT, …)

“Courier goods from abroad still have to clear customs clearance?”

This is one of the most common questions of businesses / individuals receiving goods via courier service for the first time.

Courier items will be gathered and cleared in different area. Shipments from express services are allowed to go through customs procedures at customs sub-department for express delivery. Customs officers may ask the recipient to declare the import declaration or submit logistics-related licence procedure.

For example:
You buy a gift from a foreign website, you use the courier service to delivery to Vietnam. The information is as follows:
Items: Sport shoes; Weight: 1.5 kg; The value of shoes is 1,000,000 VND
At this point, courier may do the whole import customs procedure for you, because the shoes are likely to be exempt from import tax and VAT.

However, if you buy another gift like below:
Items: Game console, weight of 150kg package; The value of the game console is 50,000,000 VND.

It is likely that you will have to do import customs yourself, logistics-related licence procedure.
