Entry and exit declaration procedures removed at 12 border gates

Entry and exit declaration procedures removed at 12 border gates

Wednesday, July 17, 2013, 10:24 GMT+7

The Public Security Ministry’s Immigration Department has issued a decision to abolish the procedure of entry and exit declaration at nine border gates and three seaports. The decision, which took effect on July 15, 2013, was issued following the Prime Minister’s direction about removal of such procedures at border gates and seaports that have been equipped with passport readers and have computerized their entry and exit procedures.       Accordingly, as of that date, people who enter or leave Vietnam do not have to fill in entry or exit declaration forms at the nine border gates comprising Na Meo in Thanh Hoa Province, Nam Can in Nghe An province, Cha Lo in Quang Binh Province, Bo Y in Kon Tum Province, Hoa Lu in Binh Phuoc Province, Xa Mat in Tay Ninh Province, Vinh Xuong and Tinh Bien in An Giang province, and Ha Tien in southern Kien Giang province. Of the gates, the first fours are in central provinces while the other fives are in the southern region. The procedure removal is also applied at three seaports: Chan May in central Thua Thien-Hue Province, Quy Nhon in central Binh Dinh province, and Duogn Dong in southern Kien Giang Province. Earlier in 2010, the same procedure was abolished at 12 border gates nationwide, including Hanoi, Quang Ninh, Lao Cai, Lang Son, Nghe An, Quang Tri, Hai Phong, Da Nang, Nha Trang, Vung Tau and Ho Chi Minh City.  In the future, the same removal will be applied for all other border gates when they meet the required conditions, the department said.
