Can anyone advise if it is possible to buy duty free alcohol at Changi on arrival for Singapore disembarking passengers?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, with limits.

If you are a bona fide traveller above 18 years of age, have arrived from countries other than Malaysia and have spent 48 hours or more outside Singapore immediately before your arrival, you are granted the following duty free concessions for liquors:

1-litre of spirits, 1-litre of wines and 1-litre of beer; or

2-litres of wines and 1-litre of beer; or

1-litre of wines and 2-litres of beer

Thanks for the advice. I am aware of the limits but can you actually buy the alcohol in Changi Airport arrivals level immediately after disembarking from the overseas flight (not Malaysia) and then pass through immigration/customs for a stay in Singapore?

When I was last in Singapore (18 months ago)I was sure that you could buy the duty free after immigration as well as from the duty free shops airside. From memory, the vodka was very cheap-$15 SD for S_____ff vodka. A___ut was a bit more. Other spirits weren't as cheap.

You can buy it both at the transit lounge when you land and also immediately after you go through immigration, before you collect your luggage.
