Since our event in New Delhi in 2018, IBMATA has been working with WTTC and other partners to develop a vision for digital borders and seamless travel to take the hassle out of travelling without compromising security. Following workshops in Istanbul and Ottawa in 2019 – and a discussion panel with Border leaders at the International Summit on Borders in Washington DC in June 2019 – we have produced a White Paper setting out a roadmap for the border of the future which we are sharing with border agencies worldwide.

One of the key features of the paper is digital identities and the ever-increasing use of biometrics in immigration and border control solutions.

Singapore is a very important travel hub for many travellers, with Changi Airport being one of the most popular stopover airports as well as many cruise liners using Singapore port as a starting point before cruises around South-East Asia. Singapore Straits plays a major role in customs clearance with many ships stopping to gain clearance before continuing on their journey.

The Border Management & Technologies Summit Asia conference and exhibition will bring together leading government officials from across central Asia, South-East Asia, Australia and the Middle East to discuss the border security challenges faced in the region and in their respective nations.

Singapore is a unique country that has one of the busiest land borders in the world between Singapore and Malaysia. Changi Airport is one of the most popular stopover airports in South-East Asia and due to Singapore’s geographic location Singapore Straits plays an important role in customs clearance.
