In a statement today, Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) noted that travellers using the land checkpoints during this period could expect delays.
ICA said travellers could expect heavy departure traffic on April 29 while arrival traffic was expected to be particularly heavy on May 2.
“Security at our checkpoints remains the top priority against any potential threat to Singapore. The BioScreen system has been implemented at the passenger halls of our land checkpoints to capture the thumbprints of visitors.
“With security checks, traffic build-up is inevitable, especially when a large number of travellers use the checkpoints at the same time,” it said.
ICA said it would continue to take necessary measures to improve clearance efficiency as much as possible without compromising security.
