Introduce QR code usage at Johor checkpoints, suggests Onn Hafiz

ISKANDAR PUTERI: The usage of QR codes should be introduced at the Customs, Immigration, and Quarantine Complex (CIQ) in Bangunan Sultan Iskandar (BSI) and Sultan Abu Bakar Complex (KSAB) in Gelang Patah, says Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi.

The Johor Mentri Besar said that the introduction will match the Singapore government's decision to implement the method at land checkpoints at Woodlands and Tuas in early 2024.

He added that this method will also help strengthen the foundation of the Johor-Singapore Special Economic Zone (SEZ).

"The state government welcomes the decision made by Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Malaysia Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim during the recent 10th Singapore-Malaysia Leaders' Retreat.

"At the same time, the Johor state government would also like to propose three suggestions to be considered by both the Federal Government and the Singapore Government, such as ensuring smooth mobility of workers and goods.

"This can be done with the introduction of multiple entry visas and special passes, ensuring enough immigration and customs manpower, and for the federal government to consider introducing the usage of QR codes at the CIQs," he said.

Onn Hafiz said this during his winding-up speech at the state assembly held at Bangunan Sultan Ismail, Kota Iskandar, on Sunday (Dec 3).

He added that the second suggestion is completing the main infrastructure, such as a special lane from the Second Link towards Forest City, the development of light rail transit (LRT), high-speed rail (HSR), ferry services, and a landing point for air taxis.

"Thirdly, we would like to suggest a fiscal incentive that includes tax incentives such as corporate and individual tax and investment tax allowances," he added.
