3/3: EXTENSION OF VEHICLE ENTRY PERMIT
Many Malaysian workers have chosen to remain in Singapore as Malaysia’s Movement Control Order is in force. To make it easier for them to remain here for an extended period amid the developing COVID-19 situation, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) will be extending the Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) validity period for Malaysia-registered vehicles till 30 June this year.
There is no need for Malaysian motorists to submit any application for this extension. They will however, need to ensure they have sufficient value in their Autopass cards for Singapore’s VEP fee, Reciprocal Road Charge (for foreign cars only), ERP charge and toll payments before driving out of Singapore. They should also update their vehicle insurance validity dates using the VEP digital service to cover the full duration of their stay in Singapore.
Members can direct their Malaysian workers to http://www.onemotoring.com.sg to calculate the charges, update insurance validity and for further information.
