Relocation to Singapore - What is allowed re Alcohol

Post by JessD » Mon, 29 Nov 2010 6:08 am

Hello relocatting next year and was wondering what to do with contents of the Liquor cabinet at home - Are you allowed to bring in half full bottles of spirits and does that go towards your allowance ?? Cannot imagine getting through the contents before leaving !!!!!

sounds like a farewell party is in order.

I expect you are allowed to bring them in but from my experience bottles of liquids are one of the things that freight companies suggest you do not bring due the risk of breakage and other belongings getting damaged.

I don't think there is any 'allowance' on imports, as I recall you pay full singapore duty on the lot. If you didn't have to, or half bottles didn't count, that would be a significant loophole that would have been exploited long ago!
