Vietnam is one of the highlights of the East Asian trading route. It’s perhaps one of the fastest-growing economies today, expanding at a rate of around 5% every single year. Doing business in this incredible country brings many exciting business opportunities.

Vietnam specialises in agriculture, forestry, and high-tech electricals for export. It’s clear to see why importing from Vietnam is seen as such an exciting venture. But if you’re interested in it, you need to make sure you understand the legislations surrounding it, and utilise a professional company to handle your shipments.

To set up a trading company in Vietnam, you do not need to have an import or export license. But you must register with the Ministry of Planning and Investment, as well as getting hold of an Investment Certificate.

Most things that cross the Vietnam border are subject to duties. On the other hand, most goods are exempt from tax. With ports spread across the country – at Hai Phong, Saigon and Da Nang – it’s possible to transport goods efficiently out of the country and on its way to you.
