Singapore’s N Korea prohibitions

Singapore Customs.pngWith effect from 8 November 2017, Singapore has prohibited  all commercially traded goods from or to the DPRK, whether they are imported, exported, transhipped or brought in transit through Singapore.

In relation to non-commercial transactions (e.g. personal or household effects) from or to the DPRK, the prohibition will apply to goods that are sanctioned under UN Security Council Resolutions 2371 (2017) and 2375 (2017) as published in the Regulation of Imports and Exports (Amendment No. 2) Regulations 2017 (also to take effect from 8 November 2017). Individuals who contravene any of the prohibitions are guilty of an offence.
