As of April 22, Singapore will no longer require foreign travellers departing the republic to have the departure immigration endorsement or stamp of departure in their travel document. The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said this is part of ongoing efforts to streamline procedures at the checkpoints and facilitate more efficient departure immigration clearance.

To further streamline the departure process, the ICA said foreign travellers departing Singapore through manned counters will no longer have their departure endorsed in their passports when they leave Singapore from April 22. Earlier, it had said foreigners departing Singapore would have their passports stamped with the date of their departure by the immigration officer at the manned counters. Since September 2016, the ICA had said foreign travellers whose fingerprints have been enrolled via the BioScreen system upon arrival into Singapore are eligible to use automated lanes when they leave Singapore.
