Vietnam had a tumultuous 20th century, with political upheaval marking the majority of this period. By the end of the Vietnam war in 1975, most of the political and social upset had come to an end. It wasn't until 1986, however, that the communist government began to develop more open trade and economic policies, allowing the country to grow and flourish. By the year 2000, significant progress had been made and Vietnam became an emerging market for worldwide trade. In 2007, Vietnam joined the World Trade Organisation.
Vietnam's main trading partner is the United States. The United Kingdom, however, has actively worked to build trade relationships in the country, giving Vietnam the designation of a High Growth Market. Vietnam has a growing economy, even when other countries are struggling to maintain strong growth. Of the 89 million citizens, many Vietnamese are young people with a strong consumer focus. While income discrepancies are still an issue between urban and rural populations, the gap is closing. In addition, inflation has yet to be controlled, despite the tight controls of the communist government.
Since the 1986 move to a more free economic system, Vietnam's industries have grown significantly. This led to a high rate of foreign investment, including many businesses based in Britain. Today, Vietnam has strong technology sectors, as well agricultural industries, with a strong focus on rice, black pepper and cashews. The country also produces a large amount of fish and rubber products.
Vietnam publishes a fairly extensive list of import guidelines. The customs procedure will vary based upon how the shipment is moved and what the final destination and intention of the package is. Commercial goods are subject to different guidelines than personal items or gifts, for example.
No matter how the package is handled, however, some items cannot be moved through Vietnam. The list of prohibited items for importation includes:
Vietnam also does not allow for the importation of used consumer products and goods. Some prohibitions deal with specific products that originate in one market. For example, you cannot move lumber products that are made in Liberia, including large items like timber and small wooden products like toothpicks and clothespins.
Besides the prohibited items, Vietnam restricts many other categories of goods and products. Restrictions apply to shipments of

Vietnam is steeped in specific traditions of social etiquette. Vietnamese citizens appreciate timeliness, so delays in delivery can negatively impact business relationships. It is, however, common for gifts to be given to both personal and business associates, so shipping an inexpensive gift is appropriate to build relationships. Finally, when shipping packages to Vietnam, keep in mind that the weather patterns are extreme. Southern Vietnam regularly experiences tropical conditions, while the northern part of the country is hot and rainy between May and September and warm and dry between October and March.
We can also help you send bulky and heavy parcels to Vietnam too. Of course the prices will often be substantially higher. 20kg parcels can be shipped on our TrakPak rate for less than £90 but for a quicker transit time we recommend Parcel Monkey Air Express which is £94 for a heavy 20kg parcel.

I wanted to send a package to my son it Vietnam. Lots of friends horror stories later about local customs office not releasing stuff and lack of tracking, also the local address was difficult to accurately pin down. And after visiting Vn earlier this year this was all believable. Anyway, I decided to give it a go. Once booked online and dropped off at the office I was able to keep track of the shipment all the way, thanks to DPD deliveries as well. It took about 4 days, which was about the same time as the flight back felt. It was interesting following its progress then, finally it was out for delivery from Ho Chi Minh City. Which is the other end of Vn from its destination, Hanoi. Probably a local on a little scooter, all the way for 1200km. Couldnt find the address, but people dont have addresses or post delivered, so this wasnt surprising. My son contacted the number in the email and arranged to meet the deliveryman. I can only say that Parcel Monkey exceeded my expectation and I would highly recommend them if anyone has a parcel adventure planned.
Service is ok and so far totally reliable. But despite measuring parcels for overseas destinations, annioyed to be billed further when packages are "laser scanned" for size. So potential savings are lost when additional costs are added.
