Foreign vehicles with outstanding fines for traffic, parking or vehicular emission offences may be denied entry into Singapore from 1 April.

The move, which is aimed at strengthening enforcement of such offences, was announced on Friday (1 February) in a joint media release by five authorities: Housing and Development Board (HDB), Land Transport Authority (LTA), National Environment Agency (NEA), Singapore Police Force (SPF) and Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA).

The authorities added that they have been repeatedly reminding foreign motorists to settle their outstanding fines via flyers and display billboards at land checkpoints. Traffic Police and other agencies have also been conducting operations at the land checkpoints to get the motorists to settle the fines.

Despite these measures, some motorists among the 60,000 foreign vehicles entering Singapore daily continue to disregard their outstanding fines. This has led to the latest measure to deny these vehicles entry into Singapore with effect from 1 April.

Where to check and settle fines

To avoid being denied entry into Singapore, foreign motorists are strongly advised to check if they have any outstanding fines for vehicle-related offences, and settle them promptly. They can check this at www.axs.com.sg.

Payment for the fines can be made through the following channels: AXS kiosks, AXS website and AXS mobile app, respective agencies’ websites and customer service counters, and SingPost post offices (applicable for all agencies except Traffic Police).
