Answer:  Please find our answers below:


1. Could you quote me how much fee per product and if there is any discount for above a certain value?
Our fee for registering a cosmetic product is 400USD/01 product. The fee is exclusive of 10% VAT. If you instruct us to register more than 10 products in one time, from 11th one, we shall consider offering a discount of 10%.
2. What documents I need to prepare?
In Vietnam, you must have at least one company who shall assume responsibility for importation of cosmetic products and registration of cosmetic product with competent authority.
If you have not yet had one, we can connect you with suitable service company who shall act as cosmetic registration holder.
We shall need a certified copy of its Enterprise Registration Certificate. From you, we shall need 01 legalized copy of Certificate of Free Sale of cosmetic product and 01 legalized copy of Power of Attorney granting right for registration to the Importer in Vietnam.
For prudence, we shall need you to provide us information of ingredient list, ratio of each ingredient and use of cosmetic product for checking before registration.
3. Please also explain the quote sheet in details. For example, what you need to do in each step?
We just need above said document and information before product registration.
4. How long does it take to complete the registration( that means I can immediately import the goods right after I got the acceptance)
It shall take you 20 working days from submission of application dossier to complete the registration. After that, the acceptance shall be recorded on the online system of the competent authority. Then, you can import product into Vietnam.
