Import-related non-tariff measure, nes

Circular 20/2011/TT-BCT on supplementary procedures for imports of cars with 9 seats or less was issued on May 12th, 2011, and took effect on June 26th, 2011. This circular requires importers of motor vehicles for transport of up to nine persons to include additional customs papers (Dealer Certificate/ Paper of Trader Authorisation) to their customs dossiers. Besides, this circular requires that such papers must be approved by the Vietnamese consulate in the exporting country. This measure causes additional costs and delays to importers, thus creating unnecessary uncertainty and worries among the business community.
