Foreigners leaving Singapore exempt from passport stamps

Foreign tourists leaving Singapore no longer need to have their passports stamped from today (April 22) onwards.

The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said it would stop issuing stamps of departure dates on travel documents, as part of ongoing efforts to simplify immigration processes.

foreignerSince September 2016, the departure stamp exemption has been in place for travellers whose fingerprints were enrolled via the BioScreen system on arrival in Singapore. These travellers have been able to use automated lanes when they leave the country.
