Duty-free rules when arriving in Singapore
The following goods may be imported into Singapore by travellers aged 18 years and older without incurring customs duty:
• 1L of spirits.
• 1L of wine.
• 1L of beer.
• Goods to the value of S$600 (if out of the country for more than 48 hours) or S$150 (if out of the country for less than 48 hours).
There is no duty-free allowance for cigarettes and tobacco products.
These allowances do not apply if arriving from Malaysia or if you’ve spent less than 48 hours out of Singapore. If you don’t use your allowance of spirits, then you may import an additional 1L of either wine or beer without incurring customs duty. Alcohol is expensive in Singapore, so bringing in duty-free drinks within these limits is a popular way to save a little money. You can find further information on the Singapore Customs website (www.customs.gov.sg).
