You will automatically be charged an instalment amount once a month on the same date that you signed up (Billing Date) until you or the last Billing Date in December of the current year. The instalment amount payable on the last Billing Date in December will be a pro-rata amount, depending on the Billing Date.

(b) Your vpermit will automatically expire on the 31st of December of the current year, if not cancelled before.
