Shipping Items from US and UK to Singapore

With great shopping deals happening almost monthly, getting discounted items in the US and UK is indeed a great idea.
But shoppers are usually unaware of the items that are prohibited to enter Singapore Customs.
Dangerous goods are prohibited to enter the country for valid reasons.

For example

  • Items with external batteries and products that contain alcohol are avoided due to possible explosion danger.
  • Perishable goods like an egg are not allowed since it may break and cause spoilage of other products packed together with it.
  • Weapons like sword, gun and knife are restricted for the reason that they may be used to cause harm.
