HCMC – The HCMC Department of Transport began piloting the collection of fees for using infrastructure facilities and public services at seaport terminals in the city on June 15 before officially beginning the collection from July 1.
Accordingly, the HCMC Inland Waterway Port Authority will use the pilot results to assess the system's security, the local media reported.
According to the fee collection plan, the collection will be conducted automatically. Fee payers will make declarations of their cargo on the customs agencies’ e-customs clearance systems and then fill in the customs declaration number in the HCMC Inland Waterway Port Authority system.
The fees will be publicized to payers, and they can use the payment services of commercial banks or e-wallets to pay them.
The fee revenue, after deducting the fee collection costs, will be submitted to the city budget. The municipal Department of Finance will coordinate with the Department of Planning and Investment to propose using the revenue to develop or maintain traffic facilities connecting with seaports, which are proposed annually by the municipal Department of Transport.
The fee revenue in the 2021-2025 period was expected to be some VND16 trillion.
