  • Intelbalti

    hi, I followed the given procedure and completed the renewal through MOI online. There is a message from MOI to collect the renewed card within 7 days from the nearest traffic police station. My question is that I have not done MVPI/FAHAS, but the renewal processed and completed. Is it not mandatory to have MVPI done? Please clarify. FYI: My car is Mazda CX-9 2013 model

    • S.M.Khurram Quaseem

      I believe you are lucky then. If your Istamara is renewed successfully and shows so in Absher account, you should go and collect. Just a matter of note, I have heard around that Police are awarding fines on expired Fahas also. They use to to this in 90s mostly as the law is there but after a long gap, they are re-inforcing this law. So better to keep your fahas updated as well.
