More than 13,000 people have used the MyTRIP QR Code at JB checkpoint

JOHOR BARU : Total 13,846 users used the MyTRIP code for bus and motorcycle service at the Customs, Immigration, and Quarantine Complex of Sultan Abu Bakar Complex in Gelang Patah.

Datuk Ruslin Jusoh, director-general of the Immigration Department, said that since June 1, the testing process for QR codes checks has been going smoothly.

“117,000 users have downloaded and used the app, while 13,846 others have used the QR code to travel via KSAB. CIQ Bangunan Sultan Iskandar is also testing the same process with bus routes.

In a Tuesday (4 June) statement, he stated that “the department is currently refining the QR Code requirements in order to ensure a smooth launch.”

He stated that the QR code is being used for immigration inspections as part of a three-month proof-of concept (POC).

This period is for Malaysians only to use the bus, motorcycle and CIQ BSI services.

He added that “the department is committed to ensuring the QR code system operates effectively at both CIQ KSAB & CIQ BSI, easing the transit at the Malaysian-Singapore Border.”

The Star had reported earlier that the QR code trial system, which aims to expedite immigration clearance at border crossings between Malaysia and Singapore, has received a positive response. Nearly 70,000 people have registered for the system.

MyTRIP has worked flawlessly since the POC began on June 1. It has also been tested successfully at KSAB. The QR code system has been delayed at CIQ BSI due to technical problems.
