Earlier, the Vietnamese and Chinese sides had agreed on the Tet holiday plan for the Mong Cai (Vietnam) - Dongxing (China) international border gate pair. Accordingly, the two international facilities are scheduled to suspend handling customs clearance procedures from February 10 through 17 at the Bac Luan 2 Bridge border gate, along with the pair of the Dongxing border market and the Km3 4 Hai Yen border crossing.

After discussion with Vietnamese authorities, the Chinese side decided to allow imports, mainly fresh produce from Vietnam, to enter its country from February 12.

Regarding entry and exit, authorities of both sides have been working throughout Tet at the Mong Cai and Dongxing international border gates, including the border gates of Bac Luan 1 and Bac Luan 2 bridges, to serve people and tourists’ travel demand./.
