    Hi all,

    I will be travelling with doxycycline from Melbourne to Singapore and to Phnom Penh. This isnt a transit flight, and I will be leaving the airport, spending possibly a week in singapore.

    I have many left from my last trip so buying them isn't a problem. I'm just a bit worried if I need any papers or anything taking them into Singapore? They have crazy laws and I dont want to be imprisoned!

    So does anyone have any idea on the topic? I tried to read up about it but I didn't get very far... Please help!

    You should be fine! I'm an exchange student in Singapore for the year, and when we travelled here from Heathrow some of us had about 350-400 Doxycyline tablets each, to last for the year, and had no problem getting them through. Don't think we were even asked about them!

    Just keep the tablets in the original packaging.
