Ho Chi Minh City makes allowances for vehicles carrying perishable goods
Vehicles transporting perishable goods can circulate in the cities and provinces implementing Directive 16 without a certificate

Accordingly, means of transport do not need to register for a vehicle identification certificate with QRCode if they only travel within the 19 provinces and cities that are implementing social distancing according to Directive 16.

In case vehicles from outside these areas have routes to/from or through the areas implementing Directive 16, the department will only issue identification once their routes are declared on the luongxanh.drvn.gov.vn website.

In case means of transport have not been granted identification, only trucks with low load are allowed to circulate at any time. Heavy trucks traveling between 8am and 4pm must submit their information to the relevant agencies for identification.

Vehicles that have been granted identification certificates before the end of July 23 can continue to use identification papers and will not need to apply for an extension. The certificates will be automatically prolonged until the end of August 1.

In case means of transport diverge from the content of their identification paper for example by changing route or purpose, they must notify the Department of Transport of Ho Chi Minh City to adjust or terminate their certificates.

In addition, the department requested relevant agencies to guide transport business units to print additional labels of "perishable goods" on yellow paper and stick it on the vehicles’ windshield. Perishable goods include goods with short shelf life and require fast delivery such as agricultural products, fresh food, and frozen goods.
