IMMIGRATION PROCEDURES

In addition to the submission of the eHDC, Long-term Pass Holders and Foreign Visitors are also required to have their passports and Permits / Entry Visas (if applicable) ready as well . If you are arriving within six days of passing through areas endemic for Yellow Fever, you may need to present a Fever Vaccination Certificate.

Automated Clearance System

The enhanced Immigration Automated Clearance System (eIACS) offers you express self-clearance immigration via automated lanes. Using biometric technology, it retrieves data from your International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO)-compliant, machine-readable passport.

eIACs is extended to the following categories of travellers automatically without the need for them to come to ICA for enrolment, as long as they hold valid International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO)-compliant, machine-readable passports which have been updated with ICA or Ministry of Manpower (MOM): 

  • Singapore Citizens above age 6 whose fingerprints have been registered with ICA during application for the Singapore biometric passport; 
  • Singapore Permanent Residents above age 6 whose fingerprints have been registered with ICA; 
  • Long-Term Pass holders above age 6 whose fingerprints have been registered with ICA; and 
  • Work Pass holders (i.e., Work Permit, S-Pass, Employment Pass and Dependent Pass) who have registered their fingerprints with MOM.

Applicants who fall within the groups listed below may approach ICA for enrolment to use the eIACS (when entering and leaving Singapore) if they meet the eligibility criteria. This service is free of charge.

  • Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) passport holders 
  • Australian passport holders 
  • People's Republic of China (PRC) passport holders
  • United States of America (US) passport holders
  • Malaysian citizens
