HCMC – Shipments bound for the European Union (EU) market before August 1, the day the EU-Vietnam free trade deal took effect, will still be granted a certificate of origin (C/O) to enjoy preferential tax policies as part of the agreement.

If shipments that do not exceed 24 months before August 1 are in the process of being transported or stocked at warehouses, bonded warehouses and tax-free areas, the enterprises can ask functional agencies to grant the C/O under the EUR.1 form.

Besides this, businesses must provide documents with information about transport vehicles, flight numbers, departure dates and container numbers.

Shipments exceeding 24 months from August 1 but stuck in bonded warehouses are also eligible for the policy. However, the ministry and EU partners will discuss each specific case and take a final decision.

The policy was stipulated in Circular 11 issued by the Ministry of Industry and Trade at the end of June. It was then clarified in a document issued by the Department of Export and Import on September 22.
