ITEMS THAT ARE NOT PERMITTED TO BRING INTO SINGAPORE

Despite the fact that Singapore is one of the most attractive destinations in tourism, the laws in this country are significantly strict. Due to this, Singapore is considered to be one of the cleanest and safest countries in the world. Breaking a law in Singapore can lead to large fines, therefore we would like you to take notice of some of the basic rules and regulations in Singapore.

 

 

 

 


A list of items that are prohibited in Singapore:

Cigarettes - one of the items that often causes problems upon arrival in Singapore. If the quantity of cigarettes exceeds 20, the carrier will be forced to pay a fine of $200. According to customs regulations, import of cigarettes into Singapore is prohibited, but an open packet may still be permissible. Nevertheless, Embassy Alliance Travel will advise you to not disregard that statement, and refrain from bringing cigarettes into the country, unless a tax is paid prior to entering the green customs corridor.

Alcoholic beverages - Passengers of 18 and above that have travelled outside Singapore for over 48 hours may import the following quantities of alcohol: 1 litre of hard liquor + 1 litre of wine + 1 litre of beer; or 2 litres of wine + 1 litre of beer; or 1 litre of wine + 2 litres of beers. If the passenger is travelling to Singapore from Malaysia, the regulation stated above is not applicable and importing alcohol is not permitted.

Chewing gum - The ban on chewing gum in Singapore has been implemented in 1992, after citizens were found guilty of sticking gum on the sensor panels operating the public transport system, leading to a malfunction in the system. Medicinal gum is permitted, providing it is prescripted by a doctor, but importing or selling it is strictly prohibited. Breaking this law can lead to a massive fine ($5,500) or even imprisonment for up to a year. Medicinal gum can be purchased in pharmacies in Singapore according to the doctor’s instructions.
