The Vietnam Railways Corporation (VNR) said it will officially launch e-ticket and e-receipt systems in September.

This is the second phase of an ongoing e-ticket sale project jointly implemented by the VNR and FPT Group since November last year.

Under the project, travellers are able to complete online bookings and select types of tickets, seats and schedules for all trains.

They can also make online payments, get e-receipts and print the tickets out themselves without having to go to the stations.

With ticket details sent to their emails or by mobile text messages matching the personal information on their identity cards, passengers only need to show their train e-ticket numbers and identity cards to be eligible to board the train, instead paper tickets as before.

The FPT Group has completed the relevant facilities for the process, including software for ticket sales as well as other IT infrastructure such as printers, ticket scanners and portable ticket inspectors.
