Although MIC has released official letters No. 2304/BTTTT-CVT dated 01 July 2018 (content is same as official letters No. 2304/BTTTT-CVT which MIC informed importers) to inform General Department of Vietnam Customs regarding procedure and document requirements for customs clearance of radio and ITE products under management scope of MIC Vietnam, there are still some issue.
