Wine Tax : Singapore Duty-Free Concessions

This is a very common question posed to me, therefore I am taking the opportunity to share with everyone (if you know already, no need to read further), the Singapore Duty-Free Concessions. Useful when you travel overseas and come back after a long flight to Singapore Changi Airport, but dun know what you can or cannot buy/bring in.

Bona fide travellers are entitled to duty-free allowance for spirits, wine and beer only if all of the following conditions are met: (a) You are 18 years old or above;

(b) You have spent 48 hours or more outside Singapore immediately before your arrival;

(c) You have not arrived from Malaysia;

(d) The liquors are for your own consumption; and

(e) The liquors are not prohibited under section 38 of the Customs Act.

You will given one of the options below:

Option A : 1 Litre Spirits, 1 Litre Wine, 1 Litre Beer

Option B : 2 Litres Wine, 1 Litre Beer

Option C : 1 Litre Wine, 2 Litres Beer

Bona fide crew members will be granted duty-free concessions on 0.25 litre of spirits, and either 1 litre of wine or 1 litre of beer.

Your GST relief and duty-free concessions are granted for your personal consumption only. It is an offence to sell or give them away.

I usually end up with Option B or C....
