Driving a bus, taxi or goods vehicle registered in ASEAN countries into Singapore


Before driving into Singapore                                                                  

Before you drive into Singapore, ensure that you have the following:

  • A Goods Vehicle Permit (GVP) for goods vehicles, or ASEAN Public Service Vehicle Permit (PSVP) for buses and taxis
  • An Autopass Card to validate and pay your entry and exit tolls at Tuas or Woodlands Checkpoint.  Each Autopass Card is tied to one vehicle, so you cannot use an Autopass Card for another vehicle
  • Insurance coverage for the use of the vehicle in Singapore
    • Since 1 April 2018, the General Insurance Association of Singapore (GIAS) no longer provides insurance for foreign-registered vehicles entering Singapore. You can buy such insurance from MS First Capital Limited instead. Malaysian vehicles insured with Malaysian insurance companies are not affected by the change. Visit www.gia.org.sg for more details.

Autopass Card


An Autopass Card is used to record your vehicle’s entry into Singapore and to pay all entry and exit fees when you exit Singapore.

Your Autopass Card is non-transferable and is linked to your vehicle and its insurance expiry date. Do not use an Autopass Card from another vehicle. It is valid for use up to the date your GVP or PSVP expires.

When driving in Singapore


Electronic Road Pricing (ERP)

In Singapore, there are ERP gantries on selected roads to help control traffic congestion. You will incur an ERP charge when you drive through the gantries during operational hours.

ERP payment

To pay ERP charges, you need to install a permanent In-Vehicle Unit (IU) in your vehicle at any authorised IU Service Centre. You will need to insert a stored-value card into the IU when you drive through an ERP gantry during the ERP operational hours. If you drive through an ERP gantry without paying, you will incur a $70 charge each time you pass through a gantry.

When exiting Singapore


You can drive out of Singapore via the Tuas or Woodlands Checkpoint. Before you leave, ensure that you have sufficient value in your Autopass Card to pay all the fees incurred during your stay in Singapore.

Announcement Shout-out

Use the Autopass Card for your vehicle to pay entry and exit tolls at the checkpoints. Do not insert a NETS CashCard/local CEPAS Card into the card reader at the immigration booth. 

Remember to top-up your Autopass Card in other parts of Singapore as there are no top-up machines at the checkpoints. 


At the immigration booth, insert your Autopass Card into the card reader to pay the following:
