Answer: This is reference to your email below. I am a litle bit concerned about vitamin. Several kinds of vitamin are treated as pharmaceutical products. Meanwhile, some of them are treated as functional foods.

For vitamin treated as pharmaceutical products, it is not possible for setting up FIC for trading pharmaceutical products in Vietnam. However, if they are treated as functional food, it is possible.

For setting up FIC trading functional food, the foreign investor should invest about 500,000USD as capital.

He/she shall be required to obtain Investment Certificate and Certificate of Business registration. Then, after setting up the FIC, the FIC shall be responsible for proclamation of the products to be imported.

For setting up FIC, it shall take you about 2 months from submission of required application documents to competent authority to setup the company. Regarding to the proclamation of imported functional foods, it shall take about 1,5 months to complete.

Our fee for setting up FIC in this case shall be 8,000USD. The fee is exclusive of 10% VAT, actual cost for translating documents of client from English into Vietnamese.

Regarding to proclamation of functional foods, our fee shall be 600USD/01 product. The fee is exclusive of 10% VAT, actual cost for translating documents of Client from English into Vietnamese and governmental fee.
