Vehicle owner fined for expired pass sticker

Rokiah Mahmud

Enforcement officers from the Land Transport Department (JPD), Royal Brunei Police (RBPF) and Ministry of Health (MoH) conducted an operation targetting foreign registered vehicle in the country recently.

The 7th ‘Ops Merakat’ in the vicinity of the Jalan Tutong commercial areas resulted in the issuance of a BND150 compound fine on a vehicle owner who failed to renew the pass sticker following its December 31, 2020 expiry.

JPD reminded private and commercial vehicle owners registered overseas, to ensure their pass stickers or commercial pass is valid or being renewed. Owners can scan the QR code provided by JPD to determine the expiry date.

The pass stickers can be obtained through the TransportBN mobile application from the JPD website at www.jpd.gov.bn. The vehicle pass sticker identifies foreign-registered vehicles that have 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 transporting perishable goods.

Non-adherence to the regulations can result in action being taken under the Infectious Disease (Chapter 204); if found guilty, an individual can be fined up to BND5,000 or brought before court, which could lead to a fine of up to BND10,000 or six months imprisonment, or both.
