Q&A: Pet Travel to Singapore
Name: Tor arne Toennessen
Number of Pets: 3
Pet Type: Dogs
Pet Breed: Jamthund (Scandinavian oldest hunting dog)
What rules would apply for us if we move from Norway to Singapore and would like to bring our dogs with us? We have a 3.5-year-old Female and her 2 pups of 15 weeks.
I have been offered a position in Singapore, but I am not saying yes if this means I can't bring my dogs. A reply from you on this would be appreciated.
Thanks for submitting a question to us (and congratulations on your job offer)!
To plan a course of action, your best source of information will be the official Singapore government website. Here you should find the most current rules about how to import your dogs into the country.
Norway is a "Category B" country, so you'll follow these regulations. As you'll see, you need an import license, veterinary certificate, microchip and all stated vaccines, including rabies. For general information about pet travel rules and requirements, please take a look at this overview.
Please be aware that it can sometimes be a challenge to find housing in Singapore, especially for three dogs. We recommend taking some time to research your options here, also, before making a commitment.
If you think you'd like some assistance with moving your dogs to Singapore, please contact us for a consultation. We've helped many pets relocate to Singapore and would be happy to discuss your options with you, too.
Good luck with everything!
