foreigner import the used-car for working in Vietnam

I know the gov of vietnam allowed foreigners to import their used-car from their nation as traffic tool when working in vietnam.   Anyone have that experience ? Looking forward to your reply.

According to the Vietnam laws that I have researched, there are all of me two requirements for importing a car. The first requirement is that you must be the original order and the second requirement is that the car cannot be more than two years old. I have also learned that if you hire a customs broker who has good relationships with the Customs officers you can get around some of these rules

Thank you, Robinson211, your information is very useful.

if anyone needs a customs broker. I have found a very good one. Let me know and I will share his information

Not just for importing cars. He will help you to get anything you need into the country. Whether it's a product that you want to sell or household items. As long as there are no drugs involved he will do everything in his power to get you a good deal and make sure that everything comes through smoothly

Please introduce to me, I'm very interested.

Robinson I would appreciate receiving that information. Could you please send it to me by PM? Thank you

These two quotes exemplify why Vietnam's economy remains mired in a third world condition.  The irony is that you actually seems proud of your ability to be a part of the system that holds your country back.   :sick

THIGV you can't soley hold him responsible for the economy. The big fish is elsewhere.

I m vietnamese; on this topic i just want to let people know the way; pls dont say bad thing here; u cant judge people when u havent seen/talked to them. If u think u can help my country, then pls help cause i cant, and either my family, my friends for sure, even we really want it.

I'm looking for reliable contact for import goods,
We did the last import via municipal client
Completely intransparent, even local Taxes, never shown on official papers.
Thereof I need to improve my network, otherwise we can't support the country.
If import is still intransparent how to calculate jobs here.
There are official fees based on the type of goods, but always different calculated at the end.

Unless they inherited their job from family connections, people pay a lot of money to work in customs. Yes in Vietnam, people pay to work...  :dumbom:

Dirty and corrupt from the bottom all the way to the top.

I'd also appreciate the details of a good customs/clearing and forwarding agent please. Thanks.

True but it's a spiderweb of a system that catches the flies, who are the common people and non-party members.  The policeman in the tan suit or the customs official are not all of it.  They pass a cut to the district chief who passes a cut to the provincial chief and so on.  However the big fish would get nothing if the guys at the bottom refused to cooperate and make the collections.  Of course if as Phikachu says, they paid for the job they have to make that up first.

The daughter of an acquaintance just graduated university with degree in government. Applied and was accepted for entry job at committee office, if she donates 200.000.000d (~$9000). Rejected the offer. However, look at the way the system works. That is probably a communist party job for life. Say she only works for 10 years, that's $75 amortized per month. And think about how many people she could 'help' later. It is like the ante in a poker game.

You have to factor in paying for promotions too...

all this sounds like a back seat driver.

I see what you did there... but it's pretty sound advice really. If you're thinking of bringing in what is probably your second most valuable asset then don't... it will most likely end up being held at customs and leveraged against you to pay some corrupt officer who paid for their own job and an opportunity like this.

They extort people everyday at the airports for less valuable things.

My sister brought her and my nephew and niece (kids of another sister) without their parents into Vietnam for familial piety duties...a funeral! Despite a letter from the parents and correct documentation they were held up and threatened with not being allowed into the country unless 50 USD was paid. Imagine the pay day they would have with a car worth tens of thousands of pounds.
