Procedures of import/ export in Vietnam
To import to Vietnam, there are two crucial documents you need to obtain: an investment registration certificate (IRC) and a enterprise registration certificate (ERC) . The process of getting these two documents can take up to 2 months.
As with IRC and ERC, you can import and export products to and from Vietnam with it – no need for a separate import license. The same goes for wholesaling your goods to businesses, you don’t need any additional licenses beside IRC and ERC. It is a total perk for businesses seeking a simple and easily-access market.
But be noted that if your target is to sell goods directly to end consumers in Vietnam, you will need to get a retail trading license. This retail trading license can take 2 to 3 months to obtain.
