The Immigration & Checkpoints Authority's (ICA) warning of there being long queues at both Woodlands and Tuas checkpoints has proven to be one we should have heeded.

On Jan. 21, 2023, which is the eve of Chinese New Year (CNY), snaking queues were observed at both checkpoints.

According to Checkpoint.sg, lines of cars can be observed at both the Tuas Second Link and Woodlands, with estimated wait times of up to 3 hours and 40 minutes can be expected.

How long are the queues?

Mothership reader Panda shared a video what things are like on the ground.
