Nearly 1,300 motor vehicles unclaimed at Yangon ports for over a year

Nearly 1,300 cars which have gone unclaimed at Yangon ports for over a year will be confiscated and not allowed to be withdrawn even with payment of fines, it is learnt from the Myanma Port Authority.

Ships load motor vehicles at seven ports — Myanmar International Terminals Thilawa, No.4 Thilawa Port, Myanmar Industrial Port, Sule Port, Bo Aung Kyaw port, Asia World Port Terminal and Htee Tan Port Terminal. Myanmar International Terminals Thilawa and No.4 Thilawa Port receive the highest frequency of ships among Yangon ports.

There are currently over 1,270 cars which have not been withdrawn for over a year at Htee Tan Port Terminal, Asia World Port Terminal, Myanmar Industrial Port, Sule Port and Botahtaung jetty. Those stranded cars will be put out to tender, it is learnt.

The imported cars are allowed to stay 60 days at Yangon ports. If the owners of the cars fail to claim them within 60 days, the cars will be confiscated and put out for bids.

The government gave a green light to car importers in October, 2011. Five stages have to be passed to allow the cars to be claimed and unloaded at the ports.
