All regulatory information for exporting wine goods to Singapore, including the regulatory environment, duties and taxes, and permitted additives.

The market for Australian wines is growing steadily as Singaporean consumers become more cosmopolitan in their dining and drinking habits and increasingly aware of the excellent wines available from Australia. Some 300,000 Singaporeans, or nearly 10 per cent of the population, visit Australia as tourists every year. Many of these visitors return with an interest in fine Australian wines. Students who have studied in Australia also bring back an affiliation with local products.

Regulatory environment

Singapore Customs administers the import procedures as well as the collection of excise duties through the Customs Act and the Regulation of Imports and Exports Regulations Cap 272A 2013.
