A foreign-registered vehicle without a pass sticker was fined BND150 and issued a warning while another foreign vehicle was fined for not complying with basic road safety rules, BND50 for a broken window and BND50 for driving with worn out tyres during an operation to monitor and enforce foreign registered vehicle pass sticker at targetted areas in the Brunei-Muara District.

The joint operation, dubbed Ops Merakat between the the Land Transport Department (JPD) at the Ministry of Transport and Infocommunications (MTIC), the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF), Ministry of Health (MoH), Immigration and National Registration Department (INRD), and Royal Customs and Excise Department (RCED), was held recently.

The vehicle pass sticker identifies foreign-registered vehicles that received RCED permission to be used in the country and foreign commercial vehicles entering the country for logistical purposes.

Overseas registered vehicles entering the country for transit purposes are not required to have vehicle pass stickers.
