Singapore: An overview

Singapore Customs and quarantine regulations

Most used household goods and personal effects can be imported duty-free into Singapore provided you hold an employment pass less than six months old, but it imposes high duties on liquor and discourages the importation of vehicles. You must be in Singapore in order to complete the customs clearance procedures. Your Move Manager will oversee your move throughout and will provide assistance and advice to safely guide you through the Singapore Customs and quarantine regulations as they apply to your individual circumstances.

What should I do with the things I can’t take?

Currently there are some items you may not be permitted to import into Singapore, and there will probably be others you don’t need to take but would like to keep. The answer is to store them in our secure and well-maintained storage facilities, where you can access them at any time during working hours.

How long will it take to ship my possessions?

Shipping to the Singapore is usually by dedicated container, in a shared container or by air freight. The latter is the speediest, taking 1-3 days, but moving your goods as a Full Container Load will take approximately 4-5 weeks door-to-door, while a shared container (Groupage) will take around 8-12 weeks. Your Move Manager will supply a schedule covering the expected transit time for your particular move.
