Tax on cigarettes, cigars and spirits when relocating ?

Post by Gringo » Wed, 28 Jan 2009 3:18 am

We will relocate to Singapore in July. We will bring our complete household to Singapore, which also include cigarettes, cigars, and spirits. Do we have to pay tax on those items when entering Singapore or are they even prohibited to import ?
Your help will be very much appreciated.

Yes you have to pay duty on all of those items. And you don't want to get caught not declaring them!

Make sure you don't smoke them in public without official receipt, local ciggys are stamped with SDPC - singapore duty paid cigarette.
You're liable for a hefty fine because they're extremely strict on smuggled ciggies.
