Longer Processing Time for Vehicle Entry Permit Applications

News Releases 08 Apr 2022 Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP)

 More Than 6 Times the Applications Now Compared to Pre-COVID19

          Since the re-opening of the land borders on 1 April 2022, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) has received around 76,000 VEP applications as at 7 April 2022. This is more than 6 times the weekly average before the land borders were closed. For the safety of all road users in Singapore, LTA performs thorough checks of supporting documents submitted for Vehicle Entry Permit applications and renewals, including checking for valid vehicle insurance. Based on current volume, the processing time is about 7 weeks. Applicants are notified of the processing time at the point of application.

2.      Travellers are advised to plan ahead. Meanwhile, leisure travellers are strongly encouraged to defer their plans to allow those with essential travel needs, such as for employment or to reunite with their families, to make their trips.

3.      Application of the VEP must be done online via VEP Digital Services on LTA's OneMotoring website. Applications will no longer be accepted at Singapore’s land checkpoints to facilitate traffic flow. When applying for the VEP, applicants should also ensure they have clear copies of all required documents below:

a.    Identity Card or Passport
b.    Immigration Pass Card (e.g. Work Permit- front & reverse sides)
c.    Vehicle Registration Certificate (geran, VOC, “Perakuan Pendaftaran Kenderaan” in Malay Language) (front and reverse sides)
d.    Vehicle Certificate of Insurance (COI, “Sijil Insurans” in Malay language)
e.    Vehicle Road Tax Disc (required for update of road tax and insurance validity for VEP applications)

4.      Drivers of foreign-registered vehicles must have LTA’s VEP approval email and Autopass card before they travel. Those without Autopass cards must collect their Autopass cards at LTA’s Johor Bahru Service Centre (34, Jalan Tun Abdul Razak Susur 1, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor) before entering Singapore.
