Pet Travel to Singapore & Dog Breed Restrictions

Wednesday, November 11, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

Are there any restrictions for moving and owning a dog in Singapore?





Hi Michelle,

Thank you for submitting a question to us. Singapore is somewhat strict when it comes to importing pets and keeping certain breeds of dogs. That doesn't mean it'll be impossible to move your German Shepherd there, but you'll need to be aware of a few things.

First, please look over the pet import rules for Singapore. Note there is a 10-day minimum quarantine upon arrival and the...

Pet Travel Update: Singapore Dog License Requirements

Tuesday, November 10, 2015 by Pet Travel News

LuluImporting pets to Singapore requires a significant amount of preparation, and we've recently learned of an additional detail that will affect pets traveling here.

Beginning January, 1, 2016, all dogs entering Singapore will need to apply for the required dog license before they can apply for an official import permit.

Moving Pets to Singapore From Italy

Monday, November 2, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

Is a quarantine mandatory for a cat moving from Italy to Singapore?




Hi Fifre,

Thank you for your question! Singapore is rabies free and is stricter than many other countries when it comes to importing pets, so yes, pets entering Singapore from Italy will need to undergo quarantine upon arrival. Depending on your cat's status in terms of vaccinations fulfilled and requirements met, this quarantine period will be between 10 and 30 days.

How to Obtain a Rabies Titer Test for Pet Transport

Thursday, October 29, 2015 by Pet Travel News

Among other things, preparing for international pet travel means understanding the pet import rules for your destination country, securing an airline approved pet travel crate, and booking a flight on a pet friendly airline.

It also means making sure pets are up to date on their rabies vaccine, and in some cases -- when going to Australia, Singapore, and other rabies free countries -- a rabies titer test is also needed.

The titer test is administered 1 to 30 days after the rabies vaccine and is...

Incredible Experiences: Four Dogs, One Big Journey to California

Thursday, October 8, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer

Liza, Logan, Flora, Raine"Moving our FOUR Dogs Cross Country!"

We recently moved from Westchester, NY to the East Bay area of San Francisco for my husband's job.

I was originally thinking about driving the dogs across the country myself because I was worried about the dogs riding in the belly of an airplane. My husband explained that the dogs would be just as stressed or maybe more riding in our mini-van across the country, and instead of being stressed for 6 hours on the plane they would be stressed for at least 5 days...

Choosing a Pet Safe Airline for International Cat Travel

Wednesday, September 30, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

We purchased tickets on Singapore Airlines thinking that we could put our cats in approved carriers in the cargo hold during the duration of our flight. Unfortunately, we've just discovered that Singapore Airlines will not transport the cats for us.

What airlines will fly cats in the cargo hold from USA to France or Germany? We're having trouble finding the answers online and we don't want to make the mistake of booking another flight where the airline will not allow the...

"Motu's Singapore Relocation"

My heroines! Mandy and Maegan were champs at getting our beloved 12-year-old yellow Labrador relocated to Singapore from Long Beach, CA. 


While researching the process of relocating our dog to Singapore -- strict import standards that require either 10 or 30 days quarantine from dogs arriving from the U.S. (except Hawaii which requires no quarantine) -- I was nervous about the process. Would my dog be stuck on the tarmac in 90 degree heat with no water in her...

Incredible Experiences: Yoda & Mojo's Move to Singapore

"From A to Z"

Relocating alone from Montreal to Singapore was already quite overwhelming, and relocating two indoor cats 14000+ km away added another challenge!


Thanks to PetRelocation, though; they took care of us, a worried and overprotective mom and two nervous kittens, from A to Z.

They got all the paperwork and the vet appointments in order and booked all the travel, the logistics and lodging arrangements. I really don't know what I would have done without PetRelocation's help.


Thanks again to...

marka & vlast"Do Not Try to Do It Yourself"

Hey guys!

So I had to move from Moscow to Singapore in May 2015 and relocate my two pets -- a dog and a cat. They had to fly halfway around the world, go through a 30 day quarantine period (mandatory for all pets coming to Singapore), but they were finally delivered to me two days ago.

Having gone through the exercise, I am very glad I did not try to do it all myself and would strongly advise anyone against relocating their pets on their own.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I have heard the law has changed when bringing house pets from Thailand to Australia, where it used to be that you had to send the pets to Singapore for 6 months including one month quarantine. Now I hear that the quarantine period for a dog or cat is 190 days, where 180 of these days can be completed in the county of origin then there will be 10 days of quarantine in Australia.
