    Heading to Singapore in December.

    I know this has been touched upon in the past but I couldn't find any recent news on people travelling to Singapore with vaping gear.
    I will be going through Singapore twice which is the worrying part on the way to and from my other destination staying a few days both times as a break in flights for my young daughter.
    I will have some gear mailed to where I am going after Singapore in case something happens and dismantle everything before I go through customs in Singapore. Will take some cheap clearos with me in my carry on so if they find them and take them no big deal and hide my better tanks and liquid in with my stowed luggage.
    Any news from people who have travelled there recently on how they went would be good.
    Cheers.

    I went through Singapore twice in Feb this year and no one even looked at me.

    My biggest fear is that I might die and my missus will sell my vape gear for what I told her it cost

    Yes they are illegal in Singapore. People mostly have trouble bringing things in either by bus or boat. Good to hear you had no issues. So you had your gear in your carry on or person?

    Why don't you try emailing them for info? Maybe there is a personal use clause or maybe PVs aren't considered e-cigarettes because they don't "resemble" cigarettes.

    Anyway, looking at the ministry of health's website there, you should scroll down and see their "get the facts right" section about e-cigarettes. Good for a laugh.

    Well, this seems to say that they are prohibited from importation, distribution, sale or offer for sale. Prohibition on Certain Products | HSA | Health Sciences Authority

    Nothing about use; or am I missing something?

    I'm from Singapore. All I will say is, u can bring it in, u can use it. But all at your own risk. It's ALL illegal. Usage distribution the works.

    edit: further adding on, ive made several trips back. all with check in luggage, my main mods went into there, i carried an ego setup in my pocket, no trouble. out and about in singapore i was using mech mods and drippers. its on the spot fines if they see an ecig, plus confiscation.
