Decree 116/2017/ND-CP dated 17th October 2017 of the Government stipulating the conditions for import of automobiles taking effect on 1st January 2018, has affected the import of automobiles with less than 9 seats.
Accordingly, the automobile importers must comply with provisions in the Decree. Therefore, when importing automobiles, these importers must be granted a permit by the Ministry of Industry and Trade and meet some conditions on emissions and have certificates issued by the importing country. Currently, only 1 company has imported the first automobile shipment with more than 1,000 units.
