The adoption of QR codes in the Johor-Singapore Special Economic Zone (JS-SEZ) represents an important breakthrough in the area's digital revolution of border control. 

In addition to advancing two interdependent economies, this will increase efficiency in lowering processing times, allowing more people to travel from these places.

Also, they offer benefits over passports since it is simple to scan a QR code to verify a passenger's identification.

The exacts of the switchover have not been made public.
