Vietnam Register accepts online applications Le Anh By Le Anh – The Saigon Times Daily HCMC – Vietnam Register has started to receive registration applications for motorcycles as well as imported motorcycle engines and electric bicycles this week in an effort to help enterprises save time and money. Enterprises now do not have to go to the agency’s offices to submit applications, complete related procedures and get results as before. They can now do these steps on www.vnsw.gov.vn. The agency will reply to applicants by mail. Companies can pay fees by bank transfer and get certificates. The agency said registration procedures on the website take only one to two days, instead of five to ten days as before. Dang Viet Ha, deputy head of Vietnam Register, said in addition to time and cost reductions, the new way is expected to cope with irregularities in the registration process as applicants do not have to meet officers in person. Vietnam Register continues accepting applications at its offices in the next three-six months so that firms can have more time to familiarize themselves with the online registration procedure. The Ministry of Transport plans to implement a one-stop-shop mechanism in sectors such as registry, road and inland waterway in order to simplify procedures for enterprises. Since early this month, the one-stop-shop mechanism has been applied by port authorities in HCMC, Vung Tau, Danang, Quang Ninh and Haiphong. The ministry plans to expand this mechanism to the road and inland waterway sectors from August.
