SINGAPORE: More time will be needed for immigration clearance during the festive year-end season, the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said on Wednesday (Dec 20).

At the Woodlands and Tuas land checkpoints, there will be enhanced checks on vehicles, including the inspection of car bonnets and boots.
