Conventional Cargo
Customs permits are required to be produced at the checkpoint for clearance of both dutiable and non-dutiable goods where there is inter-gateway movement.

Please visit the Singapore Customs website for more information on permit requirement and documentary procedures.

Containerised Cargo

Transhipment of cargo


The trader must obtain a Customs permit for inter-gateway movement of containerised cargo. Upon approval of the permit, the container should be produced at the first (i.e. entry) and second (i.e. exit) checkpoint for clearance. The Customs permit need not accompany the container at the time of clearance.

At the first checkpoint, the container would be affixed with a Customs seal. The sealed container must be produced at the second checkpoint for clearance within 24 hours after its release from the first checkpoint. Appropriate action will be taken against the declarant of the Customs permits should ICA officer at the second checkpoint find that the Customs seal affixed at the first checkpoint has been tampered with.

Please visit the Singapore Customs website for more information on permit requirement and documentary procedures.
