The General Department of Taxation has said that it has piloted the electronic registration fee payment service for cars and motorbikes in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, starting from March 12.

Accordingly, when registering their cars and motorbikes, locals in the two economic locomotives can pay registration fees online through the National Public Service Portal, online payment channels of banks (Vietcombank, Vietinbank, Agribank, VPBank, MBBank, BIDV) and payment intermediary service providers (the National Payment Corporation of Vietnam (NAPAS) and mobile wallet MoMo), without using cash or going to banks or treasuries as before.

With this service, registration fee payers do not have to use paper documents to complete the procedures at the related traffic police agencies in order to register the vehicles, the General Department of Taxation said.

The department said this pilot project will save money and time for taxpayers, contributing to modernising tax administration and collection in the State budget.

In order to pay the fees online through the National Public Service Portal, residents must have accounts of the payment intermediaries and banks linked to the National Public Service Portal (only Vietcombank at this time).

Via commercial banks, they must have accounts at those banks and have registered for electronic payment services (Internet Banking) at Vietcombank, Vietinbank, Agribank, VPBank, MBBank and BIDV.

In addition, electronic registration fees are also paid through intermediaries (NAPAS, MoMo) when people use their services.

Since its launch in December 2019, the National Public Service Portal has provided 169 online public services at level 3 and 4, such as paying fines for traffic violations in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Hai Phong, Da Nang and Binh Thuan, paying registration fees for cars and motorcycles in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, personal income tax payment, birth registration in 45 localities and the issuance of criminal records in 58 locales.
