New Travel and Quarantine Rules

Easier travel for dogs in Asia...


New AVA (Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore) import and quarantine rules allow dogs from Hong Kong, Japan, and Taiwan to enter and compete in Singapore without quarantine. The opposite is also true, so handlers in Singapore can travel to those countries sans quarantine as well. Starting January 1, 2010, AVA will be implementing a new set of import and quarantine requirements as part of the rabies risk management approach to the importation of dogs and cats into Singapore.

From July 1, 2009 to December 31, 2009, dogs and cats may be imported into Singapore under the current veterinary conditions as well as the new veterinary conditions under the revised quarantine policy.  The current veterinary conditions will cease effect from January 1, 2010.

The new import requirements involve re-categorizing countries according to the rabies risk posed by different countries.

A list of categories and countries/places are as follows:

CATEGORY A
Australia, New Zealand, Republic of Ireland, United Kingdom

CATEGORY B
Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, USA (Guam and Hawaii only)

CATEGORY C
Belgium, Canada, Netherlands, Spain, United States of America (except Guam and Hawaii)

CATEGORY D
All countries other than those listed in Categories A, B or C
