even for the locals here in singapore, many are not aware about the customs regulations.

hence for those who are curious to know more (just to make sure that they don't get in trouble for carrying things into singapore) i've scanned in the readily available brochure to share with some friends online.

if you want, feel free to have a look at the brochure itself.

this copy of the brochure was correct as of 23rd march 2008.

pls contact them at the website/email/hotline for any enquiries.

to add

- you can be fined heavily for carrying into the country cigarettes / tobacco related products / liquors (from malaysia)

- pls clarify if you are carrying liquors within your allowances when you fly into singapore.

- pls clarify if you're cigarettes / cigars / tobacco have to be paid tax on before letting the checking officers check your luggage/baggages/hand-carried bags
