KUALA LUMPUR: Singapore has not rejected the use of smart cards to facilitate travelling between Malaysia and the republic, said its High Commission here.
Its press officer Gerard Ho said Singapore's Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) last held discussions with Malaysia's Immigration Department in 2004.
“ICA is still waiting for (the) Malaysian Immigration's reply to conduct testing.
“It has been working and will continue to work with its Malaysian counterpart to resolve the technical issues so as to facilitate travelling between the two countries,” he said yesterday in a statement.
On Wednesday, Home Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Radzi Sheikh Ahmad had said the proposal to allow the use of Malaysia's MyKad to facilitate the entry of Malaysians into Singapore was turned down by the republic due to security matters.
He said Singapore made the decision two months ago and both countries would discuss the alternatives, including the use of an e-passport. – Bernama
