Truck drivers need to seek QR code-based Vehicle Pass permits beforehand on digital platforms in order to export goods in border trade, the Trade Department notified. The department launched an online system to issue vehicle passes with a view to facilitating the exports of various pulses, corn, sesame and peanut in the border channel. Consequently, those truck drivers who have received vehicle passes digitally in advance are allowed to pass the border point.
The drivers of those aforementioned goods are required to seek it ahead. This vehicle pass can be done on Myanmar Tradenet 2.0 portal. The applicants holding export licences have to fill in the classification of the vehicle in the Vehicle Monitoring System (htpps://vehicle.myanmartradenet.com). After screening the application, QR code-based Vehicle Pass will be issued. For those goods which do not need export licences, they can directly seek vehicle passes.
The trucks can pass the checkpoints with that QR code. Those drivers which fail to show the QR code are not entitled to leave. That system will start on a trial run between 1 and 10 February along Muse, Myawady and Chinshwehaw border. There will be no charges for it during the trial period. That system will be fully operational from 11 February. Each truck will be charged K5,000.
