Is a quarantine mandatory for a cat moving from Italy to Singapore?
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.
For more details about this process, please refer to the official Singapore government website. Here you'll find a helpful timeline tool and additional guidance.
