Singapore is celebrated for being clean and safe, with some of the lowest crime rates. Residents benefit from an excellent public transport system, top class health-care facilities and a diverse culture that promotes tolerance. The “Lion city” has even been ranked the fourth healthiest country.

This refers to shipments that are arranged for delivery by the shipping, airline or forwarding agent appointed by the owner of the personal effects.

A letter of undertaking from your employer to pay Singapore Customs the GST involved in the event your employment pass is not approved or if your employment is subsequently not taken up.

If you are not in Singapore, your employer or next-of-kin can provide a letter of undertaking to Singapore Customs stating that GST will be paid to Customs in the event that it is established (post-import) that you are not eligible for GST relief.These supporting documents and the online DOF should be emailed to customs_documentation@customs.gov.sg.
