Four foreign-registered vehicles were issued compound fines for expired vehicle pass stickers during a joint-operation dubbed ‘Ops Merakat’ by the Land Transport Department (JPD), Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) and the Ministry of Health on Tuesday.

Owners for vehicles with licence plates QAA 3330U, SAB 1182K, QRK 2224 and SAB 4327V were fined BND150 and issued a warning for using expired vehicle pass and not renewing it upon its expiration on December 31, 2020.

The JPD reminded private and commercial vehicle owners registered overseas to comply with the regulations and scan the QR code provided by JPD.

The pass stickers can be obtained through the TransportBN mobile application for iOS or Android, or from the JPD website at www.jpd.gov.bn.

The vehicle pass sticker identifies foreign-registered vehicles that received permission from the Royal Customs and Excise Department (RCED) and Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism (MPRT) to be used in the country including foreign commercial vehicles entering the country to transport perishable items such vegetables and fish.
