White embarkation card temporarily not needed for travel into M'sia
By Lynda Hong, Channel NewsAsia | Posted: 21 January 2008 2219 hrs

SINGAPORE: The next time you head to Malaysia, you may no longer need to submit the white embarkation card.

Travellers who used the Causeway and the Second Link in Tuas found out about this during the weekend.

Channel NewsAsia understands that Malaysian immigration authorities had implemented this since last Saturday, on a trial basis.

And during this trial period, travellers only needed to present a valid passport to Malaysian immigration officials, at the checkpoints.

The Malaysian High Commission in Singapore did not confirm how long the trial will last.

It's believed that authorities would decide to implement the new system permanently, only at a later date. -CNA/vm

White card temporarily not needed, but please check if your passport is stamped when enter, and when leaving double check if exit stamp is there.

And Sing is still demanding their citizens fill in white card when entering Sing?

Oh...

If MLY implemented this full time later then we will look selfish and narrow minded. Not a good Asean neighbour at all.

It's to prevent problems. They have made things difficult for us before and they probably will again so it's better to be safe than sorry. Anyway, the authorities can change their minds quite fast. So just fill the card, if they don't need it, so be it, if they need it, you're prepared, rather than having them accuse us of holding up the queue.
