Indonesian tourist Indah, 21, receives help from an officer of the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA), Sergeant Muhammad Fazril, on using an electronic arrival card instead of the paper disembarkation/embarkation card to provide her personal information. She was at the Singapore Cruise Centre in HarbourFront yesterday, the first day of a three-month trial of the electronic card that the ICA plans to introduce. She told The Straits Times: "The process is quick and easy and it saves time." The trial will be conducted at Woodlands and Tuas checkpoints, Changi Airport and the four cruise/ferry terminals. It is set to replace the disembarkation/embarkation card which visitors now submit on arrival.
