Planning a trip to Johor from Singapore after October 1, 2024? There's an important change you need to be aware of: the mandatory Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) system. This article will explain everything you need to know about the VEP, its importance, and how it will impact your cross-border travel.

The VEP is a new system implemented by the Malaysian government to regulate the entry of foreign-registered vehicles into the country, specifically targeting those entering Johor from Singapore. It functions through an RFID tag that will be electronically linked to your vehicle.

Why is the VEP Important?

The VEP serves several key purposes:

  • Smoother Traffic Flow: The VEP aims to streamline the entry process at checkpoints like the Causeway and Second Link, potentially reducing congestion and expediting border crossings.
  • Data Collection: The system will provide Malaysian authorities with valuable data on incoming traffic volume, allowing for better traffic management strategies.
  • Security: The VEP can help deter car theft and the operation of car-cloning syndicates by electronically identifying authorized vehicles.

Here's what you need to do before October 1st, 2024:

  1. Register for VEP: Apply for the VEP online or at designated centers.
  2. Obtain VEP-RFID Tag: Once registered, you'll receive an RFID tag to be installed on your vehicle.
  3. Activate the Tag: Ensure your tag is activated before your trip to Johor.

Important Reminders:

  • Failing to obtain the VEP by October 1st, 2024, may result in denied entry or fines.
  • Unresolved traffic violations in Malaysia can prevent your exit with the VEP system.

Overall, the VEP system is an initiative to enhance traffic management, security, and data collection for cross-border travel between Singapore and Johor. By registering and obtaining the VEP beforehand, you can ensure a smooth and hassle-free journey into Malaysia.

For more information on VEP registration and the application process, refer to official Malaysian government sources.
