LABUAN: Immigration checks at the Labuan roll-on, roll-off (ro-ro) ferry terminal, which have been a source of much debate, will be carried out through a drive-through process starting today.
Labuan Corporation (LC) chief executive officer Rithuan Ismail said this was in line with the joint statement issued by him and the Labuan Immigration Department on Nov 24 that the concept was to ease the boarding process (outflow) of travellers onto the ferry.
“We will stick to our decision that the drive-through concept will be executed without requiring drivers and passengers to get out of the vehicle for immigration travel document checks.
“We are doing our best to ease (the situation) and provide convenience to travellers going through the Labuan ro-ro ferry terminal,” he told Bernama yesterday.
Rithuan was commenting on complaints that drivers and passengers were still required to go to the immigration counter for document checks, despite using the drive-through method.
Rithuan reminded travellers to be ready with their travel documentation before approaching the immigration kiosk at the terminal for a smooth outflow.
