VIETNAM: 60 Day Turnaround Mandated for Re-Export Goods in Bid to End Illicit Food Imports

Goods imported for re-export now need to be processed and dispatched within 60 days, with any instances of non-compliance punishable by the sequestration and destruction of the goods in question. Upon written request, a maximum of two 30-day extensions may be granted at the discretion of the local customs authorities. The move is intended to end the illegal practice of agricultural and fishery products officially designated as for re-export being clandestinely sold within the country in violation of the due tax requirements.
