The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has announced that from 1 August 2014 onwards, drivers driving into Singapore will expect to pay an additional S$15 dollars per day for the Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) and S$30 dollars per month for the Goods Vehicle Permit (GVP) fee.
The agency states that the cost difference has widened in recent years, giving rise to the need to revise the VEP and the GVP fee. As part of LTA’s latest review, the VEP fee for foreign-registered cars entering Singapore will be revised from S$20 to S$35 per day, and the GVP fee for foreign-registered goods vehicles will be revised from S$10 to S$40 per calendar month, starting from 1 August 2014.  The periodical review of the foreign vehicle permit fees to ensure that the cost of owning and using a foreign registered vehicle in Singapore is commensurate with that of owning and using a Singapore-registered vehicle.
Revised VEP Fee
The VEP-chargeable hours will remain unchanged: from 2am to 12 noon on weekdays during Singapore’s June and December school holidays, and from 2am to 5pm on weekdays outside these two school holiday periods.
The VEP fee increase only applies to foreign-registered cars and will not affect buses or taxis.  The VEP fee for foreign-registered motorcycles will remain the same at S$4 per day.  All foreign-registered cars and motorcycles will continue to enjoy the following VEP-free days and VEP-free hours:

  • Saturdays, Sundays and Singapore Public Holidays;
  • Normal weekdays per calendar year; and
  • Between 5pm and 2am on all other days (these VEP-free hours are extended to start at 12 noon instead of 5pm during the June and December Singapore school holidays).

Revised GVP Fee
Owners of foreign-registered goods vehicles can continue to purchase the GVP at the current fee of S$10 for July 2014. However, any GVP with a validity period beyond July 2014 will be charged at S$40 per calendar month.
LTA will continue to periodically review the VEP and GVP fees to take into account changes in ownership and usage costs of foreign-registered and Singapore-registered vehicles.
More information on the revised VEP and GVP fees for foreign-registered cars and goods vehicles is available at the Woodlands and Tuas Checkpoints. Motorists can also visit www.lta.gov.sg > ‘Roads & Motoring’ > ‘Driving In and Out of Singapore’, or contact LTA at 1800-2255 582 (1800-CALL LTA) if in Singapore, or 65-62255 582 if calling from other countries.

移民与关卡局官员在检查一辆马来西亚注册的罗厘时,取获四瓶疑是哥冬叶水的液体,并将罗厘的驾驶者和陪同者逮捕。 移民与关卡局于昨日11时45分在脸书上帖文,指出当局在搜查马国注册罗厘时,在驾驶员座椅的下方和后面,发现了四瓶装有棕色液体的瓶子,还有两个装有疑似液体残留物的瓶子。 两名落网的马国男子分别为35和38岁,案件已经转交中央肃毒局处理。 当局指出,边界是维护国家安全的首道防线,移民与关卡局和中央肃毒局官员将会继续严守此防线,严厉打击企图进口非法药物的活动。 哥冬叶水(Kratom)内含有称为mitragynine和7-hydroxymitragynine的生物碱化合物,属于《滥用毒品法令》中的A级受管制药物成分。进口任何A级受管制药物皆属违法行动,一旦被定罪,将被判至少五年监禁及五次鞭刑,或不超过30年的监刑及15次鞭刑。 哥冬水将导致永久性失忆 作为传统药草的哥冬叶水,常常用于缓解疼痛,坊间曾流传指它可同时兼具让人亢奋和产生梦幻的两大毒品特性。以前马国小部分乡村地区的农民和渔民,也会有饮用哥冬水的习惯,他们相信这样能够提高他们在阳光底下劳动的耐热性。 然而有实验发现,哥冬叶会永久破坏人类的记忆力。在2015年透过白老鼠实验的效果显示,以哥冬水喂养的老鼠,会出现永久性失忆的情况。 马国巡警竟旷工聚集吸毒被逮 虽然马国也加强打击毒品,但是在上个月进行的“蓝魔取缔行动” (Op Blue…
