    I will be flying to Singapore soon, to live there for a few years.

    To my knowledge, this means you don't pay tax on some products at the airport?
    Or does it relate to getting free stuff depending on how many miles you have flown for? (Given how far I'll be travelling, this would be great!)

    Are there only certain things that I can get? I assume I can only get them from UK airports?

    It means you don't pay vat on the stuff you buy, it's things like alcohol fragrances and food they tend to have.

    None EU travellers don't pay VAT. But most airport shops are vadtly overpriced even after discount so check prices of your favourite priducts in Singapore before purchasing.
