Aviation National Single Window officially launched

After two years of pilot implementation, the Hanoi Department of Customs officially introduced an Aviation National Single Window and automated system for customs management and supervision on September 29.



According to the department, the window and system will minimise the contact needed with businesses in completing customs procedures, adding to administrative reform efforts and making procedures more transparent for customs authorities.

Using the two systems will change the management method from manual to electronic data collection.

For the management of vehicles and passengers upon exit and entry, the application of risk management will help customs authorities gradually reduce unnecessary inspections and only focus on targeted flights and persons, reducing the instance of smuggling, trade fraud, and illegal transportation of goods via international airports.

The official introduction of the system will bring efficiency and major benefits to customs authorities, airlines, businesses, and individuals. It has so far met targets set. All airlines have sent information to the Aviation National Single Window. The rate of automated handling of goods and information collection has hit over 99.5 percent./.
