Malaysia, Singapore eye passport-free travel between both countries

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 11 — Malaysia and Singapore have agreed to develop a passport-free travel system to allow better movement across the two countries’ border at the south of Johor.

In a joint statement today, the Ministry of Economy and Singapore’s Ministry of Trade and Industry said both governments have also signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for a Johor-Singapore Special Economic Zone (JS-SEZ) to strengthen economic ties between the state and the republic.

Under the agreement, both countries agreed to explore several initiatives among them the adoption and implementation of a passport-free QR code clearance system on both sides, to facilitate more expeditious clearance of people at land checkpoints.
