Singapore is one of our prime destinations for relocation assistance. Many families and business people move to Singapore for the business opportunities. It’s a safe city with a low crime rate and excellent Education system. Like Hong Kong the other finance city of Asia, Singapore has low taxes. It does have plenty of rules that apply, and pet import or pet ownership in Singapore has rules also.
Singapore does have a lot of pets, smaller breeds of dogs being especially popular. Probably because people are mostly living in flats in the city. Singapore does have good parks and pet friendly places for spending time with your pets. However there are rules and regulations that you do need to follow to Import pets into Singapore, as well as to keep pets in the city. Ferndale’s job is to help you make the early preparations before your dog or cat moves to Singapore.
What to know about relocating pets to Singapore
There is no quarantine for dogs and cats travelling from Hong Kong to Singapore. But some pets travelling from a different origin do have quarantine.
For pets from Hong Kong travelling to Singapore, they require a Rabies Neutralising Antibody Titre Test (RNATT) blood test, and their annual and rabies vaccines must be all up-to-date done at least 14 days before departure. For the blood test, they must have been microchipped and have a valid rabies vaccination done at least 30 days before taking a blood sample. So long as the results are acceptable, they can then enter Singapore. Rabies blood results usually takes about 3 to 4 weeks to come back, and once we have the pass result, we can start the Singapore import documentation. This can take up to 2 weeks to prepare, so we recommend starting the process at least 2 months ahead.
Who makes the rules in Singapore for pets?
The Animal & Veterinary Service (AVS) is the Government department that is responsible for pet related matters in Singapore. They regulate the rules around pet ownership, as well as the requirements for importing or exporting pets to and from Singapore. Singapore has been rabies-free for over 50 years and the AVS works hard to maintain this status and the regulations are partly to help this.
