The Immigration Department and Home Ministry are exploring the implementation of a quick response (QR) code system at several main entry points of the country to address congestion issues.

Immigration director-general Datuk Ruslin Jusoh said they have conducted studies on using QR codes at the country’s entry points, with the current phase focusing on testing, according to Bernama.

He mentioned that the Home Ministry would announce details about the testing phase in due time.

“One of our commitments is to address congestion at the country’s main entry points.

“This is still in the early stage and has not yet been implemented, but the details will be announced by the Home Ministry later,” he said.

On 3 December last year, the Johor state government proposed that the federal government consider adopting a digital QR code system, similar to Singapore’s, for movement in and out of the Customs, Immigration, and Quarantine (CIQ) Complex in the state.

Currently, Malaysia is testing a QR code checkpoint system with Singapore, but only for workers traveling on factory buses.

Ruslin emphasised that the Immigration Department and Home Ministry remain committed to implementing continuous initiatives to address congestion at the country’s entry points, not only in Johor Bahru but also at the country’s air entry points.

“The priority is to find a process that facilitates and accelerates (clearance) without compromising on security aspects,” he said.
