Malaysia defers enforcement of VEP during 'peak-hour traffic' until further notice

KUALA LUMPUR (ANN): Malaysia on Monday (Sept 23) announced that it will defer the enforcement of its Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) 'during peak-hour traffic operation' until further notice, citing 'several issues' including difficulties in obtaining appointments for the RFID tag installation.

In a statement, the Transport Ministry said that this would affect"all outbound traffic" at Bangunan Sultan Iskandar and Kompleks Sultan Abu Bakar at Woodlands and Tuas Checkpoints respectively.

The VEP was first announced in 2017 by then ruling government Barisan Nasional to identify the number of foreign vehicles entering Malaysia and also to prevent car theft and car cloning syndicates.

On Sept 2, Malaysia's Transport Minister Anthony Loke said his ministry was still looking into how it could implement the permit at Malaysia's borders with Thailand, Indonesia and Brunei, reported Malaysia Chinese-language daily Sin Chew Daily.

The Malaysian government did not say when the VEP would come into effect at the other borders.
