The Ministry of Transport (MoT) and related agencies have set a target of applying National Single Windows (NSWs) at all 25 ports in Vietnam by June.

NSWs have been deployed at nine trading ports, including Dong Nai Port, which has had one since March 15.

According to Mr. Le Thanh Tung, Deputy Director of the Information and Technology Center at MoT, enterprises using NSWs have faced difficulties due to the need to submit original documents to port authorities while also performing online applications.

To resolve the problem the General Department of Vietnam Customs has consulted with other departments and agencies on a draft document to be submitted to the Prime Minister for approval.

For example, a foreign vessel clearing customs procedures at any Vietnamese port should use an NSW while submitting original documents to port authorities only at the first time of entry.
