Controlled & Prohibited Goods for Import

The list of prohibited goods shows the goods not allowed for import into Singapore.

Controlled goods require proper authorisation (advance notification, licence or certificate approval) from Competent Authorities (CAs) before they may be imported into Singapore. You may view the list of controlled goods here.

Alternatively, you may search to check if the goods are controlled using the description of the goods, Harmonized System (HS) code or CA product code. If the item is subject to control, the name of the CA will be indicated next to its HS code. You may check directly with the respective CAs on their licensing requirements.
