Bilateral travel agreements between the US and both Singapore and South Korea
If the bilateral travel agreements between the US and both Singapore and South Korea are implemented, immigration restrictions for citizens travelling between the countries will be eased.

The US has agreed, in principle, bilateral travel agreements with Singapore and South Korea to minimise immigration restrictions and increase ease of travel for citizens.

If implemented, the agreements would allow pre-screened passengers to clear immigration and Customs using automated kiosks when travelling between the US and Singapore or South Korea.

The partnership between the US and South Korea would see the US Global Entry Program linked with Korea’s Smart Entry System.

Reports suggest the agreement between the US and South Korea could come into effect as soon as January 2012.
