The implementation of the Vehicle Entry/Exit System (VES) will facilitate and expedite the application of permits to bring vehicles across the border through Control Posts by making online applications. The matter was clarified during a session to publicise the system's implementation Kampung Bukit Beruang Community Hall in Tutong District yesterday afternoon.
The briefing was delivered by Awang Mohammad Mu'inuddin Chin bin Abdur Rahman, the Deputy Controller of Customs. The implementation of VES replaces the manual system using forms and is hoped to reduce congestion at the control posts related to filling the vehicle forms. Meanwhile, the Royal Customs and Excise Department has provided booths for the public to register Vehicle Passes online at 'www.bdnsw.gov.bn'. The QR Code generated on the Vehicle Pass will be scanned during border crossings. The vehicle pass can also be printed or kept in digital format and uploaded to smart-phones, tablets and other platforms. The validity of the Vehicle Pass is three months starting from the date of registration.
Attending the session were Yang Berhormat Awang Haji Wahab bin Apong and Yang Berhormat Awang Haji Ramli bin Haji Lahit, Members of the Legislative Council. The information session will be held in the Brunei Muara District on Tuesday at the Brunei Muara District Department. Similar sessions would take place at Bangar Town Bumiputera Main Complex in Temburong District on Wednesday and at Kampung Pandan Community Hall in Belait District next Thursday.
