For those travelers who have used the online immigration arrival card, wish to ask if the immigration officers will ask for the physical card when they don’t see one handed over along with the passport? Or they are already used to not seeing the arrival card and thus not asking for it as more foreign visitors are using the online arrival card? Am asking this because our group wish to try out the online arrival card, but there is a member who doesn’t understand Mandarin at all, scare that if the officer asking for it but he doesn’t understand and is not able to respond. Thanks in advance.

Tell them u filled up online and submited.
If kiasu, then just go for paper.
I go paperless one.
Today also never ask me anything.
Maybe because i got speedy immigration ba.
But so far, if asked, tell them submited online will do fine.

Exactly our worry that immigration officer will ask in Mandarin for the arrival card and the member doesn’t understand a single Chinese word at all. Perhaps will just let him fill up the paper arrival card to avoid any misunderstanding and the rest of us who understand Chinese will do it online. Thanks for the advice.

U queue behind him. Can always go ahead and tell officer he has submited online.
Simple as that.
