Under the current legislation, registration fees for passenger cars, or cars with less than nine seats, at eight provinces and cities of Hanoi, Quang Ninh, Hai Phong, Lao Cai, Cao Bang, Lang Son, Son La, and Can Tho are 12% of the car price, while in Ha Tinh, the rate is 11%, and HCMC, Danang and other cities charge 10%.

Meanwhile, buyers of pick-up trucks with transport volume of less than 1,500 kilos and five seats or fewer, and vans with capacity of 1,500 kilos or less, will pay an amount equal to 60% of the nine-seat car’s registration fee.SGT
