AYER HITAM: The Transport Ministry has received 191,293 Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) applications for private vehicles from Singapore from January to March 31 this year in anticipation of the reopening of the Malaysia-Singapore border on Friday (April 1).

Its minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong, however, said only about 65,000 vehicles were ready to enter Malaysia as they had radio frequency identification (RFID) tags installed and possessed valid VEP.
