Prohibited Items When Entering Singapore

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) warned Filipinos who are planning to enter Singapore to avoid bringing porno magazines, gun-shaped lighters, and chewing tobacco.

The advisory was issued after a report from the Philippine Embassy in Singapore that a Filipino was apprehended due to possession of a knuckle duster. This is punishable by imprisonment and caning under the Arms Offences Act of Singapore.

The following items are prohibited for all who wants to enter the Lion City:
  • firearms or firearms parts, including magazines
  • live bullets, including blanks, of small or large caliber for revolver, pistol, or rifle
    air pistol or air rifle or parts
  • spear guns or cross bows
  • explosive blasting caps, dynamite, detonators, detonating cords

  • signal flares
  • tear-gas spray, pepper spray
