If I hold a work pass, can I use the automated immigration clearance at Singapore checkpoints?

The Enhanced Immigration Automated Clearance System (eIACS) lets you use the automated lanes at our immigration checkpoints for faster clearance. You can use this facility if you:

  • Hold one of these passes:
    • Employment Pass
    • S Pass
    • Work Permit
    • EntrePass
    • Personalised Employment Pass
    • Dependant’s Pass
    • Long Term Visit Pass
    • Training Employment Pass
    • Work Holiday Pass
  • Registered your fingerprints and facial photo biometrics with MOM.
  • Keep your passport details updated with MOM. You need to wait 4 working days before you can use the automated immigration clearance after you have updated us.
  • Hold a passport that is approved by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

You can find out more about this from the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) website. Motorcyclists can also use automated clearance to the ICA checkpoints at Woodlands and Tuas when going to, and returning from Johor Bahru, Malaysia.
