If you’re travelling to Singapore, custom officers can request a drug test when you arrive, even if the drug was consumed before your arrival — which could result in your arrest.
Travel Canada made the warning Wednesday in the wake of cannabis legalization in Canada.
In a tweet, Travel Canada warned, “custom officers can request drug test at the point of entry to #Singapore.”
“If you test positive for drugs, you can be arrested and prosecuted, even if the drugs were consumed prior to your arrival in the country,” the tweet said.
The tweet comes five days after Singapore’s Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) released a statement on drug use outside the country, and how Singapore citizens or permanent residents can still be prosecuted once in Singapore.
