Malaysia’s passport QR code trial at Johor-Singapore Causeway faces 2-week delay; app ‘still being developed’

A Malaysian state official reported that the testing for Proof of Concept ( POC ) for QR code clearance for Malaysians crossing the Johor-Singapore Causeway, which was scheduled to begin on Saturday ( Jun 1 ), has been delayed for two weeks. &nbsp,

State Works, Transportation, Infrastructure, and Communication Committee Chairman Mohamad Fazli Mohamad Salleh said the vendor was currently completing the mobile application to enable QR code usage at Bangunan Sultan Iskandar ( BSI) customs, immigration and quarantine complex.

According to The Star, he told reporters in Jalan Abdul Samad on Sunday,” The MyRentas mobile game is still being developed and is expected to be fully available within the next two days.”

Mr. Fazli added that the Sultan Abu Bakar Complex ( KSAB) was running and operating the QR code immigration clearance testing. &nbsp,

According to Mr. Fazli,” KSAB has started as scheduled on Saturday, and so far, it is running smoothly,” he said, noting that KSAB and BSI will remain testing various mobile apps during the POC time. &nbsp,

” Those who pass through KSAB can use the QR code program embedded in the MySejahtera mobile game, MyTrip,” according to the statement. At the BSI, the mobile application visitors could use to check out the program is called MyRentas”, he explained. &nbsp,

Prior to that, Deputy Prime Minister Fadillah Yusof had stated that the MyTrip program would go through a three-month POC test before it might be deployed at checkpoints across the country.

Similar trials of the MyRentas BSI program are anticipated to last three months. &nbsp,

Prior to the start of Malaysia’s QR immigration initiative’s trial time, which allows travelers to go through the Singapore-Johor boundary by using a special QR code alternatively of their visas, was announced earlier this year. &nbsp,

A Johor-Singapore Causeway and Tuas Second Link, both, will allow some travelers to use QR code certification at both BSI and KSAB, the emigration compounds, in April, according to a Johor immigration department spokesperson. &nbsp,

The official stated that vehicle passengers and motorists at KSAB will be able to check their QR rules at both checkpoints, while bus drivers may do so at both locations. &nbsp,

He added that the captain initiative would be able to contain Indonesian motorcyclists who pass by BSI.

This was expanded from a previous statement by the government that simply Malay traveling on stock buses would become involved.

According to local media, the program was going to be implemented in smaller steps starting in June and would cut down on the 400, 000 travelers who pass through the checkpoints each day by half in terms of immigration certification. It was intended to operate similarly to the Singapore QR clearing program that was implemented on March 19. &nbsp,

The recent Johor program was met with joy, with about 70, 000 persons registering to use the demo program at the border crossings. &nbsp,

Local media reported that on Saturday during checks at the KSAB complex, the majority of vehicle passengers chose to try the new QR codes despite still having entry to options like E-gates for biological passports and regular lanes.

According to Acting Director of Johor Immigration Mohd Faizal Shamsudin, who was quoted in local advertising on Sunday, people even gave favorable comments about using the QR script. &nbsp,

He further stated that the number of registers may increase in coming years and that the E-gate, guide, and MBike for motorcyclists would still be accessible to regular travelers.

He urged people to log into their social media accounts to view customers updates and life prospects streams from both emigration points. &nbsp,

Mr. Fazli emphasized that the state hoped that visitors may continue to use the available QR code systems and provide feedback on their experiences. &nbsp,

” We need the opinions so that, at the end of the Deliverable time, we can decide which programs are much”, he said. &nbsp,
