The Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) says it will be operating from its newly built office for both passenger and commercial clearance at Mchinji-Mwami border starting on Monday the 21st November, 2022.
The revenue collector announced the relocation in a statement yesterday, saying it wants to test the facility before the official launch.
“This means that from 21st November, 2022 onwards, no customs clearance will be processed at the old office, reads part of the statement.
It is expected that the Mchinji-Mwami One Stop Border Post will be launched by President Lazarus Chakwera and his Zambian counterpart Hakainde Hichilema.
The project was implemented by the governments of Malawi and Zambia with support from African Development Bank and World Bank.
The Ministry of Trade said recently that use of the one stop border post will enhance efficiency in clearance processes and will reduce the time people spend at the border.
