Discover the evolution of Singapore’s passports with Gil Schneider

  • Ever wondered how Singapore’s passport has evolved over time? TheHomeGround Asia spoke with Gil Schneider, the President of the Vexillological Society Singapore to find out more.

Gil Schneider is an avid collector of passports and has amassed hundreds of them internationally in his trusty vintage suitcases. We get a sneak peek into his collection of Singapore passports, from the end of World War Two in 1945 until today. From flimsy slips of handwritten papers to state-of-the-art biometric passports, watch how our travel documents have evolved over more than half a century.

Dr Schneider unearths his rare finds of passports made just for the Hajj pilgrimage, travel for the stateless, and visits to our bordering neighbour, Johor Bahru.
