Singapore

"The easiest, most worry-free pet shipment we have ever undertaken."

Just letting you know we called into Pet Paradise to visit Molly yesterday afternoon after we landed in Houston. She was doing fine and seemed quite happy - though she did her best to get us to take her home with us.

We are now in our apartment and after a quick trip to the supermarket yesterday to get some cat food, litter tray etc, we are all organised and very much looking forward to her arrival this morning.

"Thank you for making this such a smooth process!"

Hi Jillian,
Thanks for the good news.
I will send some photographs once they are out of the quarantine facility.
Thanks for all of your help and for making this such a smooth process.
Best regards,
Brian

"I had a wonderful experience with your company!"

Many thanks to you as well. I had a wonderful experience with your company, and you in particular. We’ll call you in a few years when its time to return to the US!

With appreciation,

"I’ve been so pleased with your company throughout this process."

Hi, Jillian.

Just wanted to let you know that the dogs were picked up this morning, and everything went smoothly here. I can’t remember the name of your agent, but they were very friendly and efficient, and I felt very comfortable trusting them with Sanford and Lizzie.

Thanks for everything, Jillian. I’ve been so pleased with your company throughout this process, and I’m confident the puppies will arrive in Singapore safely.

Thank you so much.

Regards,

Dana

"I can't thank you enough!"

Jillian,

Thanks for the update. I spoke with my husband and he has already visited Abbey & Tess and said they look great and seem comfortable.

I can't thank you enough for the care that was given to them. I did see the clip and I thought the dogs did great! Who'd a thought??

It has been a pleasure to get to know you and we'll stay in touch.

Best Wishes,

Evonna

Hey Jillian,

That's really good news! We were nervous but knew she would be in good hands. One more thing that we can check off our list.

Thanks to you and Casey for organizing this and it was nice to put a face with a voice at the relaunch party.

Thank you very much for your efforts and communication. We would not hesitate to use your services or recommend them to others in the future.

All the best,

SINGAPORE IMPORT RULES AND REQUIREMENT

Steps for Moving a Pet to Singapore

Moving to Singapore with pets requires at least a few weeks of careful preparation, and depending on where you're coming from, you'll also be facing quarantines of varying length. For the US, Canada, Netherlands, Spain and Belgium, these are the steps to keep in mind:

1.  Six Months Continuous Residence in Country of Export (or since birth)


Your issuing veterinarian (i.e. local veterinarian) will need to state on the health certificate that your pet has resided continuously in the country of export for the six months prior to departure.

Your government veterinarian (for example, the USDA) will also need to be willing to endorse paperwork stating that your pet has resided continuously in the country of export.

2.  Microchip

Each pet shall be identified by means of a microchip.  No other form of identification is acceptable. The microchip used should comply with ISO Standard 11784 or Annex A to ISO standard 11785, and AVID 9-digit chips are accepted as well.

3.  First Rabies Vaccination & Certificate & All Other Vaccinations

All pets must have an original Rabies Certificate and this certificate must state the microchip number, the date of inoculation, and the validity of the particular vaccination you obtain - some are good for two years, others are only good for one.  This vaccine must be an inactivated vaccine. For import into Singapore, the first rabies vaccine must be OLDER than four months.

Other Vaccinations (List on Separate Certificate)

Dogs:
Distemper*
Hepatitis*
Parvovirus*

Cats
Cat Flu (Feline calcivirus, Feline viral rhinotracheitis)*
Cat Enteritis (Feline Panieukopaenia)*

*At least two weeks prior to import.

(Wait 30 days between these two steps)


4. Rabies Serology (FAVN) Test

Your vet will need to perform a rabies blood test on your pet at least 30 days after the first rabies vaccination, but within six months prior to export.  The results need to show your pet has a rabies titre test of =/> .5 IU/mL.

5. Second Rabies Vaccination & Certificate

All pets must have an original Rabies Certificate and this certificate must state the microchip number, the date of inoculation and the validity of the particular vaccination you obtain - some are good for two years, others are only good for one.  This vaccine must be an inactivated vaccine. For import into Singapore, the second rabies vaccine must be OLDER than 30 days. The second rabies vaccine must be given AFTER the titer blood draw. It can be performed on the same day as long as it is done in the correct order.

6. Reserve Quarantine Space

Once the original lab results come back from the rabies serology FAVN test, you will be ready to apply for quarantine space.

7. Vet Health Certificate (Form 7001) & AVA Veterinary Certificate

This is the standard Health Certificate to be filled out by your USDA accredited Veterinarian, and it must be issued within seven days of the flight.  It must also state the pet was treated for external and internal parasites within 2-7 days of the flight.

8. Import Permit

You must obtain an import permit prior to arrival in Singapore.

9. USDA Endorsement

The above referenced forms:

    * Two Rabies Certificates
    * Vaccination Certificate
    * Vet Health Certificate

Must be sent to your local USDA for their stamp of approval.  Please contact your PetRelocation representative about the best way to handle this.

10. Quarantine

There is now a 10-day mandatory quarantine upon arrival in Singapore for pets coming from the US, Canada, Netherlands, Belgium and Spain.  This cannot be avoided.  Reservations must be made with the Singapore Animal Quarantine Station prior to arrival.

You can find out more about Singapore quarantine facilities on our site.

If you're bringing pets to Singapore from a country other than the ones mentioned above, please consult the Singapore government website, and if you have questions about any of these regulations, please contact a Pet Relocation Specialist for more information.
