The Royal Customs and Excise Department continues to publicise the implementation of the Vehicle Entry/Exit System or VES. A briefing was held today at Kampung Pandan Community Hall in Kuala Belait to disseminate information on the system to Belait District residents.

The session was also attended by the Acting Belait District Officer, Awang Haji Zamri bin Haji Junaidi. The briefing intended to provide detailed information on the implementation of VES which is intended to facilitate or ease applications for permits to bring vehicles across the borders through the control posts. The system replaces manual forms being used now. The Royal Customs and Excise Department also provides booths for the public to register their vehicle passes online through the department's portal, 'www.bdnsw.gov.bn'. The implementation of the Vehicle Entry/Exit System or VES is intended to reduce congestion caused by waiting for the endorsement of Vehicle Permits which are filled at the Control Posts.

The QR Code generated on the Vehicle Pass will be scanned during the border crossing. The public are recommended to register their vehicles prior to travelling. The Vehicle Pass can be printed, kept in digital format or downloaded to smart-phones, tablet and similar gadgets. The validity of the Pass is three months.
