PAYABLE DUTIES & TAXES FOR ITEMS SHIPPED TO THE SINGAPORE
Some territories have a duty free allowance on imports, meaning that goods under a specific value are tax exempt. Singapore is no exception: imports valued over 400 SGD require a 7% duty. Some items are also subject to a proportional duty or additional tariff, including:
- Gasoline, Petroleum and Biodiesels
To learn more about the Duty & Tariff policy in Singapore, please visit the Singapore Government webpage on Duties & Dutiable Goods. Import customs are payable upon delivery of the package to Singapore, not when they are sent from your virtual mailing address or your virtual mailing addresses. As a result, duties & tax are not included in the cost of your ShipByMail shipment.
We guarantee the safety of your forward packages to ShipByMail. If your purchased goods arrive to ShipByMail virtual mail addresses in Canada in substandard condition, we will notify you and pause the shipment: this way, you won’t pay duties on products that have to be returned/exchanged with the original provider.

Express Shipping from the ShipByMail warehouse to Singapore will take 4-8 business days.
