The Pengkalan Hulu Customs Station is the only station in Perak that borders with Thailand. The Pengkalan Hulu's Customs office is situated at the Bukit Berapit Immigration Complex where other government agencies like the Road Transport Department, The Royal Police Department, Immigration Department and the LKIM are also situated
The Pengkalan Hulu Customs Station has been in service since the country was under the British rule. The original station was located right on the Malaysia - Thailand border. Due to the uncertainty of the actual border then, the station was relocated to Kampong Padang Tamat at the Perak - Kedah border in Malaysia and was under the administration of the Penang Customs. In 1977 the station was relocated to Kampong Air Panas in Perak and placed under the administration of The Perak Customs. In 1978, the station was again relocated to the Immigration Complex at Bukit Berapit. It is still at this location until today.
