Malaysia introduce new biometric measures at all entry point.

Post  Ikon on Sat Jun 04, 2011 1:38 am

As above, I was caught off guard. Today took leave and was on my way to JB via Tuas, smooth traffic all the way from Singapore checkpoint to the Malaysian checkpoint not much cars and when I reach there, traffic was somewhere about 20 or 30 meters from the small hut where they distribute the white cards, but it was slow moving. As usual we suspect that this could be due to only limited booth open.

This is not the case, they had about 4 or 5 booth open per lane, the slowness was because now we have to give our index fingers (both hands) for biometric fingerprinting. So everyone in the car need to get out and spend a few seconds to get biometric fingerprinted. Then they will tag your passport with an RFID sticker or something. Ask the immigration officer if need to do this everytime enter JB and he replied only need to do this once.

As you all can guess, on my way home via the same way at around 9.30 pm, saw that the queue going in was quite long, maybe coming to a kilometer, therefore just a word of warning, the biometric thingy was introduce on 2 June, so things will slow down at all the entry point to Malaysia, just to avoid going during the peak period or else be prepare to spend some time in the congestion. What a great time they pick to start this biometric thingy during the June school holidays......

Not much info, all I read from the Internet says something about homeland security and the thus the newly implemented biometric measures which seem a bit too late, don't you think so?
