International Circulation Permit in Singapore, Malaysia, and
After driving from San Francisco to Ushuaia (the bottom of South America), and shipping and driving across Australia, we shipped our four vehicles to Singapore. While we are of course in possession of carnets, vehicle documents, and International Driver Permits, we were unable to drive our vehicles away from Singapore customs. They say an International Circulation Permit (ICP) is required. In most countries customs/aduana is providing this service--they usually issue a sticker that permits the vehicle to drive on their roads for a period of time--typically 30 to 90 days.
Thanks to this fine web site, we've sorted out where to go for the ICP so I am not concerned any longer about Singapore but I am concerned that the countries in which we are headed may require circulation permits as well. We are going to Malaysia and Thailand next--possibly Laos too.
Can someone let us know if these countries require a ICP and, if so, where to obtain them. Also if they have any other tricks up their sleeves.
BTW our vehicles have four-wheels but I hope you won't hold that against us :-)
