The Sultan Iskandar Building or Bangunan Sultan Iskandar (BSI) is a customs, immigration and quarantine CIQ complex in Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia. Located at the Johor-Singapore Causeway, it is one of the two land ports of entry to Malaysia on the Malaysia-Singapore border.
The building was named after the late Sultan Iskandar of Johor. Built as part of the Southern Integrated Gateway project on the former site of the Lumba Kuda flats, Kampung Bukit Chagar, the building occupies an area of 232,237 square metres (2,499,780 sq ft), making it the largest CIQ complex in Malaysia. The building started operations in 2008, replacing the former Johor Bahru CIQ Complex.
From Malaysia, vehicular access to the building is provided by the Johor Bahru Eastern Dispersal Expressway, continuing after border inspection onto the Causeway to Woodlands Checkpoint in Woodlands, Singapore. Pedestrian access to the building is provided via the Johor Bahru Sentral railway station, which is linked to the building by a footbridge.
