A Thai Tiktoker, @iamsungstarwin, shared how he brought more than $20,000 into Singapore and ended up being detained at Changi Airport because he didn’t know that he had to declare it.
He posted the video onto his page on 10 September, sharing that he was travelling with 5 other friends and offered to help them convert their Thai baht into Singapore dollars for them.
So he then collated the money, which amounted to 610,000 baht (or SGD$23.253.92), and planned to prank his friends by holding onto the money and charging them a higher exchange rate.
But it soon went awry for Sung as he was then detained at Changi Airport for failing to declare the amount of cash that he was carrying.
Under Singapore law, travelers entering the country with more than $20,000 in cash are required to declare the money.
Sung was then questioned before being led to a separate area, but was soon released and he then resumed his journey and holiday with his friends.
