In the last few months, immigration and passport control has been improved with new procedures and computers. As a result, immigration officials have arrested nearly a hundred international fugitives and alleged terrorists trying to enter the country. These people included five from the Middle Eastern, four Indonesians, two  Vietnamese, one Japanese and 11 Indians. Some of those arrested were held on suspicion of  links to terror groups.
