HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SHIP FROM SINGAPORE TO THE PHILIPPINES?

The shipping period for cargos from Singapore to the Philippines depends on whether you are shipping via sea or air. Typically, it should be as follows:

    • 5-7 days for sea freight
    • 1-3 days for air freight

TYPES OF SHIPMENT MODES

When it comes to sea shipping, there are two shipping modes available: LCL (Less than Container Load) and FCL (Full Container Load).

LCL (LESS THAN CONTAINER LOAD)

When shipping smaller quantities, LCL is preferred. Under this set-up, your cargo will be consolidated with other shipments in a shared container. The shipper would only pay for the amount of space occupied by their cargo.

FCL (FULL CONTAINER LOAD)

FCL is ideal when shipping large volumes. In FCL, the shipper will be paying for the entire container and thus will have the advantage of using all the available space in the container.

On a whole, shipping via FCL tends to be faster as cargo would immediately be delivered from the port to the destination. FCL is also cheaper per cubic metre than LCL.  Nevertheless, when shipping smaller quantities, LCL is more cost-efficient than FCL.

WHAT ITEMS ARE COMMONLY BEING SHIPPED FROM SINGAPORE TO PHILIPPINES?

PROCEDURE FOR SHIPPING FROM SINGAPORE TO THE PHILIPPINES

REGISTER AS AN IMPORTER

Businesses first need to obtain an Import Clearance Certificate (ICC) from the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR). Thereafter, importers have to register with the Bureau of Customs (BOC) and create an account with the Client Profile Registration System (CPRS). The ICC from the BIR is valid for 3 years while the Customs Client Profile Accreditation has to be renewed yearly.

PREPARATION OF IMPORT DOCUMENTS

Once their parcels have arrived in the Philippines, businesses must provide the following documents to customs officials:

  • Packing list
  • Import permit
  • Bill of lading
  • Customs import declaration
  • Certificate of origin
  • Invoice

PAYMENT OF TARIFFS AND TAXES

Generally, the Philippines’ import tariffs can range anywhere between 0 to 65% with a 12% value-added tax (VAT) also levied on all imported goods.

However, under the ASEAN Trade in Goods Agreement (ATIGA), the trading of products between Singapore and Philippines will incur no import duties. Some exceptions to this agreement include:

  • Products found on the General Exceptions (GE) List
  • Items deemed to be ‘temporary exclusions’
  • Sensitive agricultural products

DELIVERY OF SHIPMENT

Once customs clearance has been fulfilled at the import country and all outstanding fees have been settled, the shipment will proceed to be delivered to the customer.
