Dear PetRelocation,

Please advise if it's possible to relocate our dog with us to Singapore from Australia. How long does the process take, and is there a quarantine?




Hi Rachael,

Thanks for the question. Moving pets to Singapore requires following these requirements. More specifically, since Australia is a 'Category A' country you'll need to follow the rules as they are outlined here (via the Singapore government website). Good news: if you fulfill all the requirements, your dog won't need to go to quarantine.

Since Australia is a rabies-free country, you won't have to jump through as many hoops as pet owners coming from other countries overall, but it's still a good idea to allow several weeks to get ready for your move.

Hope this helps you to get organized and start the planning process. Let us know if you'd like a free quote for our services or if you have any more questions. Good luck and thanks again for getting in touch with us!
