The need of establishing FDI enterprises is increasing because Vietnam is attracting a lot of foreign investors, especially in the manufacturing sector. Industrial parks and export processing zones are reliable places where foreign investors want to set up factories and operate.

However, in order to open a manufacturing company in an industrial park, an export processing zone will have to carry out more complicated and special procedures than foreign-invested companies operating in the service sector outside the industrial parks and export processing zones. It is probably difficult for foreign investors to invest in Vietnam for the first time.

What is an enterprise operating in an export processing zone (export processing enterprise)?


According to Article 2(10) of Decree 82/2018/ND-CP, the concept of export processing enterprises is defined as follows:

“Export processing enterprise is an enterprise established and operating in an export processing zone or an enterprise specializing in the production of export products operating in industrial parks or economic zones.”

Export processing enterprises that are not located in export processing zones are separated from outside areas according to the regulations applicable to non-tariff zones in the law on export and import taxes.

From the above concept, it can be seen that an export processing enterprise is an enterprise specializing in the production of export goods. Export processing enterprises can be located in export processing zones or in industrial parks and economic zones. If the export processing enterprise is located outside the export processing zone, it is necessary to separate it from the outside areas by a hard fence, with the inspection and supervision of goods and means of entry and exit like the export processing zone.

Conditions for establishing FDI export processing enterprises 


For export processing enterprises with foreign capital, they must satisfy both regulations and conditions of export processing enterprises and enterprises with foreign capital. Therefore, first of all, foreign investors need to meet the conditions to establish a company with foreign capital in Vietnam such as not doing business in prohibited industries and specific conditions for each industry according to the following steps:

  • Carry out procedures for issuance of Investment Registration Certificate (IRC).

  • After being granted an investment registration certificate (IRC), the investor shall carry out the procedures for applying for an enterprise registration certificate (ERC).

In addition, according to Article 30, Decree 82/2018/ND-CP, export processing enterprises also need to meet specific conditions such as:

  • Export processing enterprises that are not in export processing zones, must be separated from normal enterprises by a system of fences and separate entrances as prescribed for non-tariff zones. They must ensure inspection and supervision conditions of customs and functional agencies. Currently, many customs departments require export processing enterprises to install surveillance cameras connected to customs departments.

  • All manufactured goods must be 100% exported abroad.

  • Officials and employees working in export processing zones, export processing enterprises, when bringing foreign exchange from inland Vietnam into export processing zones, export processing enterprises and vice versa are not required to make customs declarations.

  • When an export processing enterprise is permitted to do business in goods trading and activities directly related to the purchase and sale of goods in Vietnam, it must open a separate accounting book for revenue and expenses related to its operations purchase and sell goods in Vietnam and arrange a goods storage area separate from the goods storage area in service of production activities of export processing enterprises or establish a separate branch located outside the export processing enterprise, processing to perform this activity.

  • There must be a written consent from the customs departments on the approval of the establishment of an export processing enterprise.

Notes for investors when establishing an FDI manufacturing company in an industrial park in Vietnam
