Foreign-registered vehicles entering Malaysia via Johor can now register for the Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) via http://www.jpj.gov.my/vep

All categories of vehicles are required to register for the VEP if they wish to enter Malaysia. After successfully registering the vehicle, the owner will be advised on the collection of an RFID tag to be displayed on the vehicle’s windshield at Malaysia Road Transport Department’s (JPJ) designated premises.

There will be an administration fee of RM10 (S$3.40) imposed during tag collection, and the VEP is renewable every five years. The VEP is in addition to the RM20 (S$7.16) entry fee for foreign-registered vehicles travelling through Johor.

However, in a report by The Star on Monday (Aug 17), Johor Public Works, Rural and Regional Development Committee chairman Datuk Hasni Mohammad said the online registration should be extended beyond Aug 31, but the implementation date of Oct 1 remains.
