Guide to Sending Parcels to Vietnam

Vietnam is a beautiful, mountainous country with fine beaches and two major river deltas - the Red and Mekong. Those deltas have fed its population for millenia and led to Vietnam developing its delicious spring rolls and famous pho.

From Vietnam's long history, eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites have emerged. They include picturesque Ha Long Bay - thousands of tall limestone pillars sprouting from the emerald waters and the ancient, preserved trading city of Hoi An - filled with canals, wooden Chinese shops, French colonial buildings, and Japanese pagodas.

While Vietnam is an old country, its population is young, vibrant, and modern. They are internet savvy and e-commerce revenues are increasing rapidly each year.

More pho anyone?

Required Documents


Shipping packages internationally requires a lot of documentation. This process alone can be confusing and time consuming. So we’ve narrowed down what documents you might need and ranked them based on likeliness of being needed.

Document Type When? Details
Shipping Label / Bill of Lading Always required This is a label provided by the carrier (UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc.). Always required because the carrier needs to know the parcel’s destination.
Commercial Invoice Required for all non-document shipments
For all non-document shipments, you will require 3 copies of the commercial invoice (to be included with your shipping labels - These are for customs purposes and need to be included inside a document pouch outside of the box.

When creating a shipment through the Secureship website, the system will help you create this document automatically.

B13a Required if value exceeds $2,000 per shipment or is a controlled good
A B13a is required if your shipment exceeds $2000 CAD or is a controlled good

Learn more about the B13a form here.
Certificate of Origin (COO) Infrequently required

Allows a reduced or zero-rated import duty.
Canada has a preferential trade agreement with Vietnam. A COO proves that an item has been produced, manufactured or processed in Canada.

When an item with a COO is imported into Vietnam, it will incur a reduced or zero-rated import duty.
Certificate of Insurance (COI) Infrequently required

Shows that the shipment has been insured.
Banks may request a certificate of insurance when providing letters of credit for the goods. Otherwise, it is generally your choice whether to purchase insurance for the shipment.
ATA Carnet Infrequently required

Used to avoid duties and taxes on shipments of temporary nature.
If you ship goods of temporary nature to and from a country, you can obtain an ATA Carnet to expedite the customs clearance process and ensure that anything of temporary nature is not charged duties and taxes.

See temporary import section
Packaging List Infrequently required Required if value exceeds $2,000 per shipment or is a controlled good.
Packing list Infrequently required

No specific form is required, but generally includes information regarding:

  • The exporter, importer and transport company
  • Date of issue
  • Number of freight invoice
  • Type and number of packages
  • Contents of each package
  • Marks and numbers
  • Net weight, gross weight and measurements of each package

Duty & Taxes

Duties and taxes are calculated by Vietnam using the CIF method, which is the sum of the customs value, insurance and shipping (freight) costs.

CIF Value = Customs Value + Insurance Amount + Freight Costs

Using the CIF Value, you can predict how much duty and tax the recipient must pay to the Vietnamese government to receive their goods.

Special Sales Tax (SST)

The special sales tax is a type of excise tax applied to a variety of goods and services, such as tobacco products and alcohol. Specific details and rates can be found here.


Thresholds

Vietnam's threshold value for incurring duties and taxes is VND 1,000,000 (about $58 CDN). This is the de minimis value, which means for a shipment below this value there are no charges.

Vietnam Shipping Insurance


You can purchase insurance through Secureship and it is provided by the carrier that will be transporting your shipment.

Each carrier will charge a different amount per $100 of declared insurance. If you indicate that you need insurance for your shipment our system will automatically include the insurance costs for your shipment.

Insurance is great to have in case your package is accidentally lost or damaged by the carrier. But be careful, not everything you ship is insurable. Worse - even if your package contains items that are insurable, if it doesn’t meet the ISTA 3A packaging standard, the insurance purchased through the carrier would not be available to you.

Here are some items that cannot be insured by the carrier:

  • Personal belongings
  • Antiques
  • Artwork
  • Liquids (including alcohol)
  • Television
  • Jewelry in excess of $500
  • Perishable goods
  • Glass or Ceramic
  • And many more items

For more information, please see the carrier's terms and conditions.
