Vietnam shortens time for granting licenses for Cambodia-bound transporters
Trucks are seen at Moc Bai International Border Gate in the southern Vietnamese province of Tay Ninh that borders Cambodia.

It will take only two days, instead of the current seven days, for Vietnamese transport businesses to get a Vietnam-Cambodia international road transport license, a senior road official has said.

The new time limit will be applied by the Directorate for Roads of Vietnam (DRV), under the Ministry of Transport, from December 1, 2015 to all automobiles that leave Vietnam for Cambodia through seven Vietnamese border gates, said Nguyen Van Quyen, deputy director general of the agency.

Applicants for such licenses will be able to save five days, as the DRV has eliminated many steps from its license granting process, Quyen said.

For example, the DRV will no longer require applicants to obtain a certificate of three years of operation from municipal or provincial transport departments, the official said.

In addition, the Ministry of Transport will allow municipal or provincial transport departments to grant such licenses for all locally-registered cars to go to Cambodia via border gates.      

Local departments are also entitled to issue the same licenses for cars of individuals and organizations located in other Vietnamese localities to go to Cambodia through border gates, Quyen said.

These new moves are aimed at facilitating Vietnamese business in transporting passengers and goods to Cambodia, the official said.
