    • the articles and effects have been in their possession and used for a period of not less than 3 months; and the articles and effects are imported through air/sea.
    • GST relief is not granted for consignment imported by road.

All shipments must be accompanied by a packing list or inventory. Consignees will be required to complete a ‘Declaration of Facts’ form (supplied by our agent), and will also be required to supply photocopies of their passport, their Employment Pass and Immigration Entry Permit. If the Employment Pass is still being processed by the Manpower Ministry, Customs will accept a copy of the Pass application duly receipted by the Manpower Ministry.

Alternatively, the consignee may furnish a letter from his or her employer confirming the employment, together with an undertaking from the employer to pay any GST chargeable in the event that the Employment Pass is not approved or that the employment is not taken up.
