Items needed for the import of pets into Singapore
by: Gabriel Tan

According to the Agrifood & Veterinary Authority (AVA) website, the pet owner will need to:

1. obtain an import permit no more than 30 days before the date of arrival,

2. ensure that the pet meet the AVA's veterinary and quarantine conditions,

3. obtain a suitable animal container and make the necessary animal transport arrangements with the airline.

All these steps are explained more fully at this AVA webpage on importing pets into Singapore.

Quarantine Needed & Other Costs Depends On...
by: Gabriel Tan

Hi Mabel

1. as of 11 Feb 09, this AVA document says that no quarantine is needed for a pet dog imported from the UK. This is provided all the other veterinary conditions are met, e.g. health certification from a qualified vet, etc.

2. Other costs include:

a. costs of meeting the veterinary conditions as specified in the document above. Some of these conditions include: health certification by a vet no more than 7 days before shipment, vaccinations, etc.

All these preparations will incur costs - check with your vet in the UK.

b. other costs associated air transport of your dog and the container needed to hold it in flight.

I hope this helps ;-)
