The Singapore government has granted visa on arrival facility for Chinese and Indian travelers at Customs checkpoint in Tuas second link. National Organizing domestic trade, consumerism and tourism board Secretary Datuk Tee Siew Kiong Dong Zong's said that this visa on arrival was put into effect on 1 November.
