ICA Revises Clearance Process of Crew, Passengers at Singapore Ports

In light of the current security climate, the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority of Singapore (ICA) has reviewed its process on the clearance of crew and passengers at Singapore ports.

With effect from November 1, 2017, all passengers and seafaring crew disembarking/embarking commercial vessels berthing at PSA and Jurong Ports’ terminals/wharves are required to report to one of the four designated ICA crew offices and undergo security checks on their passports and luggage.

The crew offices are located at Jurong Free Trade Zone, Pasir Panjang Free Trade Zone, Keppel Free Trade Zone and Sembawang Free Trade Zone.

In addition, the driver conveying the passengers/crew exiting the port is required to await further instructions from the ICA officers before proceeding as they may also be required to undergo security checks, ICA said.

This revised process is applicable to clearance at ports only – clearance processes at other areas such as shipyards and anchorages remain unchanged, according to ICA.
