Australian frequent travellers can now skip any immigration queues at Singapore’s Changi Airport in favour of strolling through the automated passport control lanes ordinarily reserved for Singapore locals.
After a brief fee-free registration process, you’ll have access to the eIACS (enhanced-Immigration Automated Clearance System) channel for two years from the date of approval, covering an unlimited number of trips to the Lion City.
Singapore eIACS fast track: what you’ll need:
Before you can register you’ll need to satisfy three basic requirements:
Must have entered and exited Singapore (not simply transited) at least three times in the previous 12 months using the same passport
Provide a spare passport-style photograph, such as available from Australia Post
Your passport is valid for at least six more months with at least one completely blank passport page
