Smoking is not permitted in public service vehicles, museums, libraries, lifts, theatres, cinemas, air-conditioned restaurants, hair salons, supermarkets, department stores and government offices. Offenders can be fined up to SGD 1,000.

While it is an offence to smoke in air-conditioned eating places, smoking is permitted in air-conditioned pubs, discos, karaoke bars and nightspots.

Safety

Travellers across the world are understandably more concerned about personal safety and security issues today than ever before.

The Singapore Government has and will continue to be vigilant in ensuring that Singapore remains safe by stepping up security measures at key installations and other sensitive places. The Government has also made it known that extremism originating from religion or race has no place in Singapore and it will not hesitate to take swift action against any extremist or terrorist group or individuals.
