SINGAPORE — From next Thursday (1 October), the 14-day renewal requirement for Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) validity will be reinstated, said the Land Transport Authority (LTA) on Wednesday.
This means that motorists of foreign-registered cars and motorcycles who wish to extend their stay in Singapore will be required to extend the VEP validity period for their vehicles every 14 days by paying the VEP fees.
Penalties will be imposed on vehicles with expired VEPs from 15 October onwards.
This will apply to all foreign-registered cars and motorcycles, including those which have entered Singapore prior to 1 October, said the authority.
The LTA had earlier lifted the 14-day renewal requirement for VEP validity from 18 March to 30 September.
Prior to this, each VEP is only valid for 14 days and motorists have to make an application at LTA’s Sin Ming office if they wish to extend their stay.
Motorists can settle their VEP fees and apply to extend their VEP validity period at AXS stations.
For VEP fees of less than $500, motorists can make payment with their autopass card at the LTA’s 24-hour autopass card top-up booths located near Woodlands and Tuas Checkpoints.
