All foreign-registered vehicles entering Singapore must possess a valid Autopass Card. An Autopass Card serves as an electronic Vehicle Entry Permit and is used to record your vehicle’s entry into Singapore and to pay all entry and exit fees when you exit Singapore.

An Autopass Card for one vehicle cannot be used for another vehicle.  Each Autopass Card is linked to a vehicle and the vehicle’s insurance expiry date. Do not use an Autopass Card belonging to another vehicle.

The Autopass Card is a stored-value card for all foreign-registered vehicles entering Singapore. It also serves as an electronic Vehicle Entry Permit and is used to pay all fees and tolls for your vehicle.  As each card is tied to one vehicle and is non-transferable, avoid penalties by using only the Autopass Card linked to your vehicle.
