The Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA), under the Ministry of Home Affairs, was formed in April 2003, with the merger of the Singapore Immigration & Registration (SIR) and the Customs & Excise Department (CED).
ICA has brought together the immigration control and clearance functions performed by the former SIR and enforcement work performed by the former CED at the various checkpoints.
Through coordinated enforcement and intensive checks at the checkpoints, Immigration and Police deter the illegal entry into and departure from Singapore of illegal immigrants. The enforcement agencies are equipped with high-speed patrol boats and have stepped up both sea and shore patrols to detect people who attempt to be smuggled into Singapore by sea. Enforcement agencies have also enhanced intelligence gathering against human traffickers and people smugglers. These human traffickers and people smugglers are severely dealt with under Singapore's laws.
To enhance their capability to detect illegal immigrants, enforcement agencies are deploying mobile x-ray machines at the land checkpoints to detect illegal immigrants who try to enter Singapore illegally by hiding in vehicles.1
In a statement in 2002 by Associate Professor Ho Peng Kee Senior, Minister of State for Law and Home Affairs, at The ASEM Ministerial Conference on Cooperation for the Management Of Migratory Flows between Europe And Asia 4- 5 April 02, Lanzarote, Spain, Singapore is very committed to combating illegal migration and human trafficking.
