The Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) refers to recent online discussions of photographs of “a fuel tank scanner” at Tuas and Woodlands checkpoints.
In response to media queries, ICA would like to clarify that the photograph below shows a prototype of an Automated Passenger In-Car Clearance System, and is not a “fuel tank scanner”. The prototype is being developed to conduct trials for car travellers to perform automated immigration self-clearance using fingerprint verification. More details will be shared when available.
ICA would like to remind travellers that photography and videography are not allowed within checkpoint premises. Members of public are also advised not to spread unverified sources of information and should refer to our official website for information.
