HCMC – The Ta Lung International Border Gate, the last operational border gate in the northern province of Cao Bang, has suspended customs clearance as the Chinese authorities detected a Vietnamese driver infected with Covid-19.
Thus, all border gates in Cao Bang have suspended customs clearance. The Soc Giang Border Gate in Ha Quang District and the Po Leo and Tra Linh border gates in Trung Khanh Districts had been shut for many weeks, the local media reported.
Since the Tet holiday, the customs procedures for some 250 vehicles, mainly those transporting agricultural products, have been completed at the Ta Lung International Border Gate. At present, nearly 100 container trucks have still been stuck at the border gate.
Pham Van Hoai, head of the management board of the border gate, said the board had informed enterprises of the border gate’s closure.
The board has also worked with the Chinese side to reopen the border gate next week.
