Dear Sir or Madam,
Next year we'll probably move from Belgium to Singapore, but my research indicated that some breeds are forbidden. Since two of my dogs are strays, they can't be categorized under a certain breed (they are from Serbia and Greece but are completely checked, microchipped, etc. Everything is correct).
Do you think this might be a problem?
Thanks for your questions! Singapore is very particular about pet import rules, but with the right preparations...Read More

"Journey to Singapore"
These two little guys have gone from rags to riches. Once homeless dogs out on the street, we took the little guys into our home in Houston. Then, work called and let me know I needed to relocate to Singapore.

Big thanks to PetRelocation and Linda for assisting with the
move of our cat!
