BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, July 30 (Borneo Bulletin/ANN): Government agencies in Brunei have made the necessary preparations to ensure travellers will cross the country’s land and sea borders smoothly when they re-open on August 1.

The Immigration and National Registration Department (INRD) and the Royal Customs and Excise Department (RCED) outlined some of the measures taken in a joint statement.

The INRD said it has upgraded the border control system in March, and testing was carried out to ensure the system ran without problems.

The RCED said their officers can provide assistance to the public who are not familiar with the new BND3 service charge for border crossing, and have also set up exit-and-entry (EES) kiosks at each control post.

The RCED said every individual, including pedestrians are required to obtain an EES QR Code, confirming payment of the service charge, before arriving at the control post.

The code can be obtained from the EES website (http://login.bdnsw.gov.bn/ees).

For bus passengers, it is the responsibility of the bus operator and bus driver to register and ensure all passengers have paid for the service charge. - Borneo Bulletin/ANN
