Dear Mr. Jahan,

First of all, ASL Law would like to send our regards and sincere thanks to you (hereinafter referred “Client”) for contacting our legal service. We understand that Client is seeking legal advice for opening a foreign invested trading company to import and export granite and marble in Vietnam.

ASL LAW is ranked as the top tier Vietnam Law Firm by ASIA LAW, Legal500, WTR while ASIA Business Law Journal has ranked our managing partner lawyer Pham Duy Khuong as Vietnam’s Top 100 Lawyers. Therefore, we are grateful to present you our Legal Service Proposal for your review and consideration as follows:


Under Vietnam’s WTO Commitments, foreign-invested companies engaging in distribution services will be permitted to engage in the commission agent, wholesale, and retail business of all legally imported and domestically produced products except cigarettes and cigars, books, newspapers and magazines, video records on whatever medium, precious metals and stones, pharmaceutical products and drugs, explosives, processed oil and crude oil, rice, cane and beet sugar. In addition, Granite and Marble are the construction material which is not in the list of import and export prohibited products under Vietnam Laws and Regulations. Therefore, you have rights to open a 100% foreign invested company in Vietnam to import and export granite and marble in Vietnam.

However, granite and marble are products that must be carried out the conformity announcement procedures before exporting from or importing into Vietnam.

Kindly note that the business line of retail is a conditional business lines in Vietnam according to Vietnamese Law. Accordingly, if Client participates in retail market, apart from applying for Investment Registration Certificate and Enterprise Registration Certificate, you must apply for Business certificate for this field.

One further note is that although the Vietnamese law has not had provisions on the capital of a foreign-invested company, according to our experience, the charter capital must be at least 100,000 USD dependent on the provinces that you would like to invest to be granted approval of the Competent Authority.


Following works are proposed based on the request of Client. However, depending on the specific position/situation of Client, several work items may not be necessary. Meanwhile, other works may be required. Any additional works beyond the scope of this Legal Service Proposal could be provided upon request.


Pre-licensing procedure

1. Consulting:

·              Attending various meetings with Client to explain and confirm the main principles for setting up the Foreign-invested company to import and export granite and marble into or from Vietnam (“the Project”);

·              Preparing a list of legal documents required for implementation of the Project. Based on the information provided by Client, we will review and incorporate these documents into the application file;

2. Drafting documents:

·              Drafting the Application Dossier for implementation of the Project.

·              Drafting the Charter of the Company.

Licensing procedure

·              Reviewing and assembling all required documents to be included in the application file for implementation of the Project;

·              Representing Client to submit the application files for implementation of the Project; and

·              Acting as Client attorney to follow up with the competent authorities regarding the implementation of the Project.

Post-licensing procedure

·              Making public-notice on company establishment.

·              Assisting Client on company account opening.

·              Making and registering Company Corporate Stamp.

The roadmap for investment registration and company incorporation can be described in the following steps:

  • Preparing the application dossier: We shall collect necessary information and documents from Client. Upon receipt of necessary information and documents from you, we shall translate documents from English into Vietnamese and prepare the application dossier under the standard forms. The initial drafted application dossier shall be sent to Client for your comments. Then, after updating the application dossier based-on your comments, we shall provide finalized application dossiers for execution. We anticipate that this phase shall be completed around 05 working days.
  • Licensing procedure:

    • For Business Certificate (Operation certificate): around 30 working days upon submission.
  • Post-licensing procedure: around 05 working days upon submission.

For avoidance of any doubt, in practice, the administrative procedure can be prolonged due to that the competent authority must consult relevant ministries before granting license. In such case, we shall try its best to accelerate the progress in order to obtain the approval at the soonest.
