Singapore’s Straits Times is reporting that foreigners leaving Singapore will no longer need to have their passports stamped from next Monday (April 22). It should mean the time between checking-in at Changi airport and relaxing in the departures lounge is quicker.
The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said on Wednesday that it would "cease the issuance of departure immigration endorsements", meaning stamps of departure dates on travel documents, from April 22.
This is part of ongoing efforts to streamline procedures at the checkpoints and make clearing departure immigration more efficient.
