Oral Reply to Parliamentary Question on Dedicated Lanes for Singaporeans and Permanent Residents at Immigration Checkpoints

Published: 26 February 2024


Mr Darryl David:
To ask the Minister for Home Affairs in view of the announcement by ICA on 13 February 2024 that all foreign visitors to Singapore can soon clear immigration at the air, land and sea checkpoints using automated lanes by the second half of 2024, whether there will still be dedicated lanes at these immigration checkpoints set aside exclusively for Singaporeans and permanent residents.


Assoc Prof Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim, Minister of State, Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of National Development:

1. Mr Speaker, ICA will still set aside lanes for dedicated use by Singaporeans and permanent residents. The proportion of dedicated lanes will be flexibly adjusted to meet prevailing operational needs, taking into account the traveller profile.
