Integrated Check Post, Moreh

Integrated Check Post (ICP) Moreh is located on NH-39 on the India-Myanmar border in the Tengnoupal district at about 110 Km. from Imphal, the State capital of Manipur. Tamu is the corresponding town in Myanmar opposite to Moreh.

The Asian Highway (AH-1), a part of the India-Myanmar-Thailand Trilateral Highway will connect Moreh to Mae Sot in Thailand, via Mandalay and Yangon in Myanmar. The road will be further linked to Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. Moreh will also be an entry/exit point for ASEAN and would thus be instrumental in facilitating India’s trade with ASEAN region.

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs had approved the development of ICP, Moreh on India-Myanmar border on 06.11.2008 at a cost of Rs.136 crore in Phase I.

The work for construction of ICP Moreh (Main Package) was awarded on 22.03.2013. Initially the work could not commence immediately due to the mismatch in the land acquired for the project. Subsequently, the Myanmar authorities lodged protest on 08.06.2013 seeking stoppage of the work between BP 77 and BP 78 on the pretext that BP 78 is not designated by the survey teams of India and Myanmar forcing stoppage of work at ICP site.

The site for the project was thus relocated and after clearances from the Ministry External Affairs & Ministry of Home Affairs, the work at the relocated site commenced on 13.08.2014.

The project faced serious hindrances such as continued law & order problem in the State of Manipur, unabated incidents of violence and bomb explosions, frequent bandhs, prolonged economic blockade and heavy rains causing damage to the Imphal-Moreh Highway, the only link between Imphal & Moreh. The 139 days Economic Blockade from 1st November 2016 to 19 March 2017 badly affected the progress of the work of the ICP Project.

The operations at ICP Moreh have commenced from Passengers Terminal on 15.03.2018.

Immigration facilities have started functioning from 08.08.2018.
