If you’re planning to drive your Singapore registered car to Malaysia and need to apply for the Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) tag but encounter issues such as a second-hand car or ownership transfer problems, here’s a step-by-step guide on how to resolve it:

Step 1: Email Application for Deregistration

Firstly, you need to initiate the process by sending an email to aduanvep@jpj.gov.my. In your email, clearly state that you are requesting to deregister your vehicle and VEP tag. Be sure to attach the following documents:

  1. NRIC (National Registration Identity Card) – Clear copy of the owner’s NRIC.
  2. LTA Document – Document from the Land Transport Authority (LTA) confirming vehicle details and ownership status.
  3. Transfer of Ownership – If the car is not under your name, provide documentation showing the transfer of ownership.
  4. Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) – Required if the car is registered under a company. Provide relevant documentation from ACRA.
  5. Retain Vehicle Registration Document – If you retain the same car plate number after a transfer or ownership change, include this document.

Step 2: Submission and Approval

After submitting your email with the attached documents, wait for confirmation from JPJ (Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan Malaysia). They will review your application and documents. If everything is in order, you will receive an approval email from them.

Step 3: Re-apply on the VEP Portal

Once you have received approval for deregistration, proceed to re-apply for the VEP tag through the official VEP Portal. Ensure all required documents and information are prepared as per the portal’s guidelines.

Additional Tips:

  • Accuracy and Completeness: Double-check all documents before submission to avoid delays or rejections.
  • Timely Submission: Submit your application well in advance of your planned travel date to allow for processing time.
  • Follow-up: If you do not receive a response within a reasonable timeframe, politely follow up with JPJ via email to inquire about the status of your application.

Driving into Malaysia from Singapore without a VEP after October 1st, 2024, may lead to:

  • Denial of entry
  • Fines of up to RM2,000 (approximately S$425)
  • Up to 6 months imprisonment

To avoid these consequences, it’s advisable to apply for your VEP well ahead of time, particularly if you plan to travel frequently between Singapore and Malaysia.
