Sultan Iskandar Building – Wikipedia

The Sultan Iskandar Building (BSI; Malay: Bangunan Sultan Iskandar) is a customs, immigration and quarantine (CIQ) complex in Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia. Located at the northern end of the Johor–Singapore Causeway, it is one of two land ports of entry to Malaysia on the Malaysia–Singapore border.

The building was named after the late Sultan Iskandar of Johor. Built as part of the Southern Integrated Gateway project on the former site of the Lumba Kuda flats, Kampung Bukit Chagar, the building occupies an area of 232,237 square metres (2,499,780 sq ft), making it the largest CIQ complex in Malaysia. The building started operations in 2008, replacing the former Johor Bahru CIQ Complex.

From Malaysia, the main expressway leading to the building is the Johor Bahru Eastern Dispersal Link Expressway. After border inspection, vehicles (and pedestrians) continue onto the Causeway, eventually reaching the Woodlands Checkpoint in Singapore. Pedestrian access to the building is provided via the Johor Bahru Sentral railway station, which is linked to the building by a footbridge.


Immigration Checkpoint[edit]

The immigration checkpoint has different checkpoints for bus passengers, bus drivers, lorries, motorcycles and cars. The checkpoint was designed with 38 counters for cars entering Malaysia, and 39 counters for those departing from Malaysia. There are 50 counters in each direction for motorcycles entering and departing Malaysia. The Secured Automated Clearance System for Malaysian Citizen Motorcyclists (M-BIKE) are provided here for all Malaysian citizen motorcyclists only, while foreigners can use Manual Counters for Motorcyclists.

Customs Checkpoint[edit]

At the customs checkpoint, 36 counters are designated for cars (20 for those arriving in Malaysia and 16 for those leaving the country) and 25 for motorcycles (17 for arrivals and 8 for departures).

All toll transactions at the CIQ complex are conducted electronically with Touch ‘n Go. All foreign-registered vehicles embarking from the Singapore Woodlands checkpoint can purchase a TnG card at an old building on the left side of the causeway before approaching Johor.

The move to implement only electronic toll transactions at the new CIQ complex is part of a government strategy to urge the public to migrate to electronic toll transactions, as well as smooth the traffic flow at the CIQ complex.

The new CIQ complex is situated approximately 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) from the previous complex at the Johor Causeway. The complex is equipped with a customer service centre and reload lanes, which operate daily to enable the public to purchase, reload, or check their Touch-N-Go cards’ prepaid balance.
