Prohibited Items at Singapore Airport

I have heard that you cannot take chewing gum into Singapore. Is there anything else? I will be going through Singapore on my way to Malaysia and back through Singapore on my way back home to England.

Items That Are A Hassle at Singapore Airport
by: Gabriel Tan

Hi there

I'm assuming that you aren't carrying any item prohibited by the airlines when you land in Singapore.


2 Possible Scenarios


Scenario 1: You Are in Transit Only

If you are transiting at Singapore Airport only and not leaving the restricted area, there's no issue with your chewing gum. You can take it along with you on the plane to Malaysia.


Scenario 2: You Are Clearing Customs

If you need to clear customs and enter Singapore, the following items will give you some hassle:

1. Chewing gum. You cannot take it through.

2. Cigarettes and tobacco products. You need to declare them in the red lane, and pay some hefty taxes and duties.

3. Alcoholic drinks above the duty-free allowance. You are given a 1-litre duty-free allowance for each of these alcoholic drink categories:

a. wine
b. beer
c. spirit

Anything above the duty-free allowance has to be declared, and taxes and duties paid.

Do note that possession of drugs and firearms are very severe offences in Singapore.

Have a good stopover.
