Due to the extension of the Movement Control Order (MCO), the Land Transport Authority (LTA) has announced that Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) for Malaysian cars in Singapore will be automatically extended until the end of June 2020.
“Many Malaysian workers have chosen to remain in Singapore as Malaysia’s Movement Control Order is in force,” wrote LTA. “To make it easier for them to remain here for an extended period amid the developing COVID-19 situation, we will be extending the Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) validity period for Malaysia-registered vehicles till 30 June this year.”
Malaysian motorists will not be required to submit any supporting documents or reapply for the VEP extension. They simply have 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,” added LTA.
The MCO was first announced on 16 March 2020. As part of the order, Malaysian citizens will be barred from going overseas, while foreigners are not allowed to enter the country.
It has been since extended till 14 April 2020 as part of a more stringent measure to tackle the rise of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the country.
At the time of writing, Malaysia has over 2,031 COVID-19 cases, with 23 deaths recorded.
