now even foreigners can use the automated gates? i just came back from singapore for vacation and when i was passing through immigration the officer directed me to the automated gate which i thought was for singapore pr / citizen only. and i managed to pass through without surrendering the departure card.

yeah i worked in sg before but the officer couldn't have known...i was like heading to the ALL PASSPORT queue like a normal tourist and the officer just directed me to the automated gate. maybe they have upgraded their system and we are like the "white mouse" trying out their new upgrade?
Since at least beginning of this year I think. My parents came to visit and when they came in the (airport) immigration officer gave them a small flyer inviting them to just go ahead and use autogates on their departure. No need to surrender white card.
