Woodlands CIQ Complex

Woodlands CIQ Complex (also known as Woodlands Checkpoint) is an immigration checkpoint on the Singapore side of the Johor–Singapore Causeway, near Woodlands Centre Road. All people and goods moving across the Causeway must clear the Checkpoint before they can continue on their journey.

For bus passengers, they must alight from the bus with all their belongings and pass through immigration on their own before being allowed to re-board their buses.

Photography is officially disallowed in the Checkpoint building.


Name: Woodlands CIQ Complex
Address: —
Berths: Sawtooth boarding and alighting berths

The terminal:

Woodlands CIQ Complex contains two processing areas for bus commuters, one for each direction of traffic flow (in and out of Singapore). When a bus arrives at the Checkpoint, it alights all passengers at the alighting berth, where lifts and escalators take passengers to the upper floor where the immigration clearances are located. After clearing immigration, passengers take lifts or escalators down to the boarding berths, where passengers re-board their buses.

At the same time, after alighting passengers, the empty bus will be subjected to security checks by immigration officials before being allowed to continue. The bus driver will then clear immigration and proceed to the berths to pick up passengers. While public buses have dedicated queuing berths, private buses must use the end-on berths. The flow is similar for buses entering and leaving Singapore.

Apart from relying on cross-border buses, passengers can reach the terminal on foot from the Woodlands Train Checkpoint bus stop along Woodlands Centre Road A pedestrian walkway connects the bus stop to the immigration clearance areas.

Bus Services:

The terminal serves all bus routes plying Johor–Singapore Causeway, such as SBS Transit, SMRT and Causeway Link services.
