I was led to the airside departure area and asked to sit on the benches as he took my passport to somewhere mysterious to issue my boarding pass for SQ. He returned after 20 minutes and led me to the lounge used by SQ. It was way more convenient than I expected. I will also recommend the Jakarta Airport Hotel for its Super convenient location, especially for SQ and QR flights (for now). Both will be moving to Terminal 3 soon.
It appears the unofficial transit procedure is still in effect!

It's quite a shame that all the foreign airlines are to move to Terminal 3 eventually... I by far prefer Terminal 2. I feel that much of Terminal 3 wasn't carefully thought out and some things were added as an after-thought.

Interesting experience though Marcel!
