A roadmap for implementing a national one-door mechanism for arrival and departure procedures of aircraft will take effect on January 1 next year for Vietnam Airlines and on March 1 for other carriers.

According to the General Department of Customs, based on the implementation plans of the Steering Committee for the ASEAN One-door Mechanism and the National One-door Mechanism, it has held meetings between relevant ministries and sectors to implement the roadmap. The national one-door customs mechanism for seaports has already been introduced.

To prepare for the aviation roadmap, Vietnam Customs has proposed that carriers and State management agencies ensure their IT systems meet regulations on technical connections with the Vietnam National Single Window Portal.

Based on Article 61 of Decree No. 8/2015, carriers are responsible for providing dossiers to customs agencies, including manifests on imported and exported air cargo being transported by aircraft, a crew list, and a manifest of checked luggage on passenger aircraft.

Vietnam Customs also proposed that enterprises operating in package delivery services and ports and warehousing introduce information systems in accordance with existing regulations on information connections and exchange with customs agencies.

The national one-door mechanism is an integrated system that includes the national one-door customs information portal, the Vietnam Automated Cargo Clearance System, and other systems of the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT), the Ministry of Transport (MoT), and others.

As at August 29 the national one-door mechanism was connected to ten ministries: Finance (Vietnam Customs), MoIT, Science and Technology, MoT, Natural Resources and Environment, Information and Communications, Culture, Sports, and Tourism, Health, and National Defense.

The number of administrative records processed on the National Single Window Portal as at August 1 was 165,000, from 7,598 enterprises to the ten above-mentioned ministries .

Many State agencies have rules and regulations relating to aviation. In order to implement procedures, carriers must send information to different ministries via manual methods. There is a great deal of overlapping information submitted, such as flight information and passenger information.

When using the National Single Window Portal, carriers need only submit information to this single point by electronic methods. This not only helps enterprises complete administrative procedures but also improves the effectiveness of management agencies.
