Getting Ready for VEP to Enter Malaysia for Foreign Vehicles

Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) is a permit issued by the Road Transport Department (under Section 66H of the Road Transport Act 1987) that allows the entry of foreign vehicles into Malaysia. It is MANDATORY that all foreign registered vehicles entering Peninsular Malaysia be registered online for VEP by 2019.

VEP registered vehicles will be issued non-transferrable RFID tags which contain pertinent information that uniquely identifies the vehicles. You will receive an official announcement from The Ministry of Transport, Malaysia, on the time, date and place of collection of the VEP RFID tags through email and online media.
