How to Get M Tag ln Pakistan

The National Highway and Motorway Police (NHMP) in Pakistan have implemented a mandatory requirement for M-Tag for all vehicles travelling on motorways since December 7th, 2021. In this guide, we will delve into the details of motorway M-Tag, why it is essential, and the step-by-step process to acquire it for seamless motorway travel.

Why is M-Tag Needed?

M-Tag allows travellers to pay toll taxes within seconds, ensuring a hassle-free experience at toll plazas. The system is designed to expedite the toll collection process, benefitting both authorities and commuters. The Lahore High Court (LHC) has made M-Tag mandatory for travel on the Lahore to Islamabad M-2 motorway, reinforcing the importance of compliance.

Documents Required for M-Tag Registration 

To obtain an M-Tag, citizens must only present their original valid CNIC (Computerized National Identity Card) and a COVID-19 vaccination certificate. Surprisingly, vehicle registration documents are not required for M-Tag issuance.

The M-Tag Acquisition Process

  • Visit the nearest toll plaza on the M-2 motorway in your vehicle.
  • Provide your CNIC for verification.
  • Provide your COVID-19 vaccination certificate.
  • Provide vehicle details.
  • Share your phone number for communication purposes.
  • Receive your M-Tag.

Ineligibility Criteria

While vehicle registration documents are not required, it's crucial to note that NHMP will not issue M-Tags to vehicles that have applied for registration. Therefore, it is advised to ensure your vehicle is registered promptly to avoid inconveniences.

How to Check M-Tag ID via SMS
