Spotlight on APAC Series – Singapore

In our spotlight on APAC series, we round up the latest developments from across Asia Pacific.  In this post we capture some notable points about the upcoming introduction of the use of Automatic Clearance Lanes at Singapore borders.


Singapore: Automated Clearance Lanes to Open to All Nationals by Q3 2024

Singapore is aiming to be one of the first countries in the world to allow all travellers to use its automated immigration clearance by Q3 2024. The introduction of the usage of automatic clearance lanes for all will save time when entering or exiting through Singapore’s international air, land and sea checkpoints, as travellers will not need to present passports when using these lanes. The lanes use biometric scanners to capture the traveller’s iris, facial and fingerprint details and run them through automatic national background check systems. However, children below the age of six will not be eligible for the use of automated lanes for immigration clearance.
