QR Code Clearance at Land Checkpoints (for Car Travelers)

  1. Efficiency Redefined with QR Code Clearance: Revolutionizing the customs clearance process, travelers can now enjoy a streamlined journey using QR codes at land checkpoints. Here's a comprehensive guide to this innovative system:

    Profile Creation: Begin by downloading the MyICA mobile app and effortlessly setting up your profile with pertinent details.

    Unique QR Code Generation: Once your profile is established, generate a distinctive QR code linked to your passport information. This digital identifier serves as your passport during the clearance process.

    Checkpoint Arrival and QR Code Scan: Upon reaching a land checkpoint, such as Tuas or Woodlands, proceed to the manual immigration counters and present your QR code for scanning by immigration officers.

    Facial Image Verification: The QR code seamlessly integrates with facial recognition technology, ensuring precise verification by ICA officers to match your identity with the information stored in the system.

    Reusable Convenience: Enjoy the convenience of reusing the same QR code for future trips, provided there are no changes to your passport details.

  2. Benefits Amplified: Embracing QR code clearance presents a myriad of advantages:

    Enhanced Efficiency: Bid farewell to long queues and cumbersome manual processes as QR code clearance drastically reduces waiting times.

    Hygienic Contactless Experience: In an era prioritizing hygiene, the touch-free nature of QR code clearance minimizes physical contact, ensuring a safer journey.

    User-Friendly Accessibility: The MyICA app's intuitive interface simplifies the entire process, catering to travelers of all backgrounds.

  3. Implementation Timeline and Expansion Strategy: Delve into the meticulous planning behind the rollout of QR code clearance:

    Commencement: Scheduled to kick off in early 2024, QR code clearance will initially debut at select land checkpoints before gradually extending its coverage.

    Unified Experience: The overarching goal is to establish a consistent clearance experience across various entry and exit points, ensuring seamless transitions for travelers.

  4. Security Measures and Assurance: Despite the convenience, security remains paramount:

    Biometric Verification: Rigorous facial image checks serve as a robust security measure, validating travelers' identities by cross-referencing with QR code data.

    Continuous Vigilance: The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) maintains a vigilant stance, perpetually refining security protocols to uphold uncompromising standards.

  5. Pioneering Beyond QR Codes: Embark on a journey towards technological innovation:

    Apics Integration: Complementing QR code clearance, Apics heralds a new era. By 2026, travelers at Tuas Checkpoint can leverage Apics lanes, presenting their QR codes and biometrics for swift identity verification.

    Woodlands Checkpoint Evolution: From 2028, the reimagined Woodlands Checkpoint will feature Apics lanes, exemplifying Singapore's commitment to cutting-edge clearance solutions.

  6. Embracing a Passport-Free Future: Singapore's ICA envisions a future defined by expediency, security, and user-centricity. As technology propels us forward, travelers traversing land checkpoints anticipate a frictionless journey, bidding adieu to the traditional passport. Welcome to the era of passport-free travel!

⚠️ For those who prefer traditional methods or are unfamiliar with technology, physical passports can still be used for entry procedures. ⚠️
