There is a very strict process when transporting personal goods into Singapore. For shipping a motor vehicle, one has to apply beforehand for a special permit dealing with the duties and GST payment.
The duty on all motor vehicles is 20% of the total value of the car and that amount depends on an assessment made upon arrival by the customs agency.Singapore has an additional goods and service tax which is 7%. It’s determined by the value of the vehicle including the cost, freight and insurance, in addition to the 20% duty. For this reason, make sure to consolidate the different sizes of cargo containers.

Import duties are on cars and motorcycles are very high, so be prepared for this additional cost if you’re moving to Singapore and want to bring your vehicle. There's definitely a lot you need to know.The following information is courtesy of the Land Transport Authority (LTA). Visit theirwebsite for more information.
You may bring your own vehicle to Singapore only if it is less than 3 years old. The age of a used vehicle is reckoned from the date of its first registration in a foreign country.
