Please use the the online service to check the status of any medications may need to bring. Some medications may need you to apply for pre-approval at least 10 days before arrival, other could be banned. see: Medication check tool

Check each medication by its compound/generic name ie Paracetamol rather than its retail name Panadol/Panamax, you may be asked for the capsule or table measure 500mg for this example. As you go through each medication the page keeps a track of the searches and produces a PDF you can keep that list each with those that are pre-approved and those that you require approval for.

Medication requiring specific approval

If you have a medication that requires specific approval you go to this page https://www.hsa.gov.sg/personal-medication/apply-approval here you fill in a series of forms that needs your travel details it does ask for a passport number, arrival details, and length of stay. It will generate an application PDF, and you are required to provide a photograph of either the script from your doctor or the pharmists/chemist label that shows your dosage and name.

The page asks you to allow 10 days for a response please do this about 14–21 days before departure to allow for processing, my application took 3 days. If its rejected talk to your doctor and see if there's an alternative they will accept.

When its approved you will receive an email which you must produce when passing through Customs in Singapore.

Attire to wear

It is sunny and humid year-round, with temperatures from 30-32 C (86-90 F) during the day. Casual wear for hot weather is widely accepted – shorts, skirts, short-sleeve shirts and flip-flops are common. Rain in August is common, so bringing light clothing and an umbrella are recommended. You will probably want to wear some form of sunblock for your face or arms. Movement from hot, humid outdoors to cold air-conditioned indoor spaces can be jarring, so bringing a shawl or sweater is not uncommon. Certain venues, such as clubs or fine dining, may have dress codes such as long pants.
