JOHOR BARU – The Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) charges on Singapore-registered vehicles entering the country via Johor Baru is expected to be implemented on August 1.
Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Aziz Kaprawi said the government plans to standardise the charges on all foregin-registered vehicles at all borders in phases.
â€œWe will probably begin implementing charges on Thailand-registered vehicles next year,â€ Aziz said before launching the Funride and Criterium at the Dataran Bandaraya here today.
The event, which attracted more than 100 cycling enthusiasts from Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei and Singapore, was held in conjunction with the coronation of the Sultan of Johor Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar last month.
The event was jointly organised by the Johor state government, the Johor Cycling Association, Johor Sports Council and Malaysian National Cycling Federation and sponsored by Iskandar Waterfront Holdings.
Aziz said the ministry was now in the process of procurement of the devices for the implementation of the RM20 charges on Singapore-registered vehicles, and Johor will be the first state to introduce VEP charges. – NST Online
