The General Department of Customs said aviation procedures for entries and exits of aircrafts at all international airports nationwide would be connected to the National Single Window system from November 15.
The national single window would allow procedures to be submitted electronically to the State management agencies and vice versa, the management agencies would issue entry/exit permissions through the system.
Dossiers would be submitted through the website: https://www.vnsw.gov.vn.
Currently, different management agencies require the submission of different dossiers, such as the manifest of imported/exported air cargoes, and the lists of crew, passengers, and checked luggage. Most of these are still on paper, which causes difficulties in sharing information.
The General Department of Customs said that the national single window system would enable all State management agencies at airports to access all electronic dossiers that were submitted.
For the first time, the information about passenger reservations was required to be submitted 24 hours before departure and updated eight hours before departure in an effort to ensure aviation security.
The national single window system would save time and costs while enhancing the efficiency of State management in this sector.
State management agencies at airports include: border customs, airport authorities, border police, animal quarantine check, plant quarantine check and border health check.
The national single window was piloted at Noi Bai International Airport from January 1 this year.
The General Department of Customs said that to date, all carriers have committed to join the national single window for aviation procedures. — VNS
