The Department of Customs has installed automated systems called ASYCUDA World (Automated System for Customs Data) at 11 border crossings, reports The Kathmandu Post.
Why it matters:
These systems are expected to speed up customs clearance and control illegal trade.
- From 2011, different border control systems were installed at major customs points with the support of the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
- Last year ASYCUDA World was installed at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) in Kathmandu and in the Inland Cargo Depot at Sirsiya, Birgunj.
- Mechi, Biratnagar, Bhairahawa, Krishnanagar, Nepalgunj, Kailali, Birgunj and Gaur customs have been upgraded to ASYCUDA World while the installation of the system at the Jaleshwor Customs Office is at the final stage.
- And recently, it was installed at Rasuwagadhi Customs on the Nepal-China border.
- The system will be installed at large customs offices in the first phase then they will be implemented at sub-customs offices too.
- ASYCUDA World was designed by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development to administer a country’s customs.
- This system makes the process of cargo submission and processing paperless.
- It allows clients to open bank accounts and make online payments besides enabling customs agents, importers and exporters to submit their customs declaration electronically.
