Domestic runners are required to register with the Ministry of Transport and Infocommunications (MTIC) as part of the measures to safeguard the interests and well-being of the business sector, domestic runners, and the public particularly, in facing the current pandemic situation.
This was announced by the Minister of Transport and Infocommunications Dato Seri Setia Awang Abdul Mutalib bin Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Setia Dato Paduka Haji Mohd Yusof during a press conference on the daily development of Covid-19 yesterday.
These include Individuals who are offering such service, either part-time or full-time, domestically in Brunei, providing runners services privately to the public, home-based business or registered companies such as restaurants and other businesses; employees under registered companies (providing runners services); or assigned to provide delivery services under registered companies such as restaurants, supermarkets, or other businesses.
Transport Operators companies authorised by the Prime Minister’s Office to enter and exit the country during the current Covid-19 situation are required to identify and distinguish between employees designated as ‘Transport Operators’ and ‘Domestic Runners’ – those who are classified as domestic runners need to register under the company.
The registration is now open and online-based through MTIC’s website at www.mtic.gov.bn/pendaftaran, and the registration is free.
Basic information, BruHims number, and vaccination status are required for the registration, and declaration is also needed, stating they carry out the services and comply with the laws, rules, and guidelines set under the Infectious Diseases Act Chapter 204, as well as other relevant laws and regulations in force in Brunei Darussalam.
A list of registered domestic runners will be uploaded on the MTIC’s website, which acts as a directory that contains their details to be used by the business sector and the public.
The MTIC’s minister said, “The support and role of every domestic runner and relevant parties including the public are much-anticipated, to respect the strategies and measures to be implemented in curbing the spread of Covid-19 infection, especially during the ‘Operasi Pulih’ period – completing their deliveries before 8 PM.”
The registration of domestic runners is jointly coordinated between the Prime Minister’s Department, Ministry of Finance and Economy, Ministry of Health, MTIC, and the Info-communications Technology Industry of Brunei Darussalam (AITI).
