The Land Transport Authority (LTA) is reinstating the requirement for foreign-registered vehicles to renew their Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) every 14 days.
This will commence from October 1, 2020 onwards.
Previously, LTA had lifted the VEP renewal requirement from March 18 to September 30, 2020. Each VEP is only valid for 14 days, and motorists have to apply at LTA’s Sin Ming office if they want to extend their stay.
The VEP validity will be extended after the VEP fees are paid. Penalties will be imposed on vehicles with expired VEPs from 15 October 2020 onwards.
For convenience, motorists can choose to settle their VEP fees and apply to extend their VEP validity period at the 810 AXS Stations across Singapore.
Motorists can also visit LTA’s 24-hour Autopass Card Top-Up Booths located near Woodlands and Tuas Checkpoints (for VEP fees less than $500 and payment by Autopass Card only).
They can also calculate the total amount payable for their vehicles using LTA’s online calculator at www.onemotoring.com.sg.
In addition, LTA is reminding motorists to update the validity dates of their vehicles’ road tax and motor insurance using LTA’s VEP Digital Service at onemotoring.com.sg before applying for a VEP validity extension.
Drivers of foreign-registered vehicles should continue to insert their Autopass Cards into the card readers at the immigration booths at the checkpoints when driving out of Singapore.
This ensures that the applicable tolls, Reciprocal Road Charge, ERP charges and any remaining VEP fees are paid.
