Currently, due to the trend of globalized trade, Vietnam's exports are growing, especially agricultural products are being developed by the state and businesses to meet export requirements. potential markets, bringing high revenue to farmers. Typically, purple sugarcane and lychee were first exported to Japan in 2019 or mangoes, rambutan and dragon fruits were exported to the US.

Normally, it is easier to export than importing, so you should ask importers what they need to import smoothly. According to our many years of experience as an exporter, the records of exporting fresh sugarcane to importers who have advantages in receiving goods include: Contract, invoice, packing list, bill, phytosanitary quarantine, C / O certificate of origin. The importer will use the contract, invoice, packing list for customs clearance, phytosanitary for import quarantine and prove that the imported goods are safe, can be imported, and use C / O to enjoy the advantages. tax treatment.

Process of exporting fresh sugar cane to Korea:

- First, in all import-export transactions, it is necessary to agree to enter into a commercial contract:

In particular, specify the information of buyer, seller, goods name, quantity, quality, type, packaging, storage of goods, unit price of goods, mode of transport, payment method, time of delivery ... To protect the interests of the seller we encourage exporters to require buyers to pay in advance or make LC bank guarantee. That will help minimize risks for sellers in international trade.

- Prepare export goods:

The seller needs to prepare the correct quantity, quality and packing specifications. The most important thing for agricultural products in general and fresh sugarcane in particular is to deliver them on time and store them at the right temperature, avoiding mold and condensation at the two ends of the cane. In addition, it is necessary to remember and paste the contents of the Korean labeling according to national food safety law No. 1399

- Prepare export documents to Korea:

The basic export documents include: Contract, invoice, packing list, purchasing list or purchase invoice. Although at present, customs procedures do not require purchase contracts and packing list, but still need to be fully prepared. It is necessary to constantly compare with the later issued documents such as phytosanitary phytosanitary of commodity names, quantities, exporters and importers. The content of the customs declaration, certificate of origin, plant quarantine, bill of lading are identical to each other and identical to the invoice, contract or not. Avoid the case of wrong content will cause difficulties for the importer, causing storage costs, storage of goods and other costs.

- Carry out plant quarantine procedures:

Plant quarantine is an important step to determine whether export products are of good quality and necessary documents to help importers in Korea continue to import procedures in their countries. Currently most quarantine agencies in Vietnam, quarantine agencies not only check records but also bring goods to the agency for professional testing so businesses need to prepare the right quality goods. Should try to quarantine and get phytosanitary quarantine certificate as quickly as possible, especially by air to send the results of quarantine by flight always.

Customs clearance:

All imports and exports need to clear customs declarations. According to our experience in export and import for many years, the export declaration of agricultural products will usually be automatically cleared (green channel) so before declaring, you should carefully check the information contained in thus avoiding the need for time-consuming procedures to correct the declaration form after customs clearance, which can lead to documents not being able to be cut off in time (we often call it off or drop off).

Procedures for C / O certification:

To obtain a certificate of origin requires the seller to have some of the following documents: customs declaration, invoice, freight bill of lading, purchasing or purchase bill, production process, ingredients product, purchase invoice, or import declaration of raw materials. For fresh sugar cane exports, to make C / O will need a minimum of documents such as customs clearance declarations, invoices, freight bills, purchasing lists or purchase invoices. When applying for C / O, the importer will be entitled to tax incentives upon import, helping importers save costs, increase competitiveness and help sellers to sell more goods. We therefore recommend that exporters need a certificate of origin for each export shipment. When you receive the original C / O, the paper version, you just need to scan and send to Korea is by the two countries that have issued electronic C / O.
