Singapore Implements QR Code System, Cuts Border Wait Times

Singapore streamlines border crossings through QR codes at Woodlands and Tuas checkpoints from March 19. Drivers scan codes instead of passports, slashing wait times by 30%. The same QR code suffices for all vehicle occupants, aiming to ease congestion at busy Malaysian crossings. This move aligns with post-pandemic travel uptick and anticipates smoother border operations.
