The The Animal & Veterinary Service (AVS) is the Animal Quarantine Authority for the entry of dogs to Singapore.
For Singapore, read both the Assistance Dog and Standard (pet) Dog Travel Rules provided. For any contradictions, clarify with the Animal Quarantine Authority.
Unfortunately, Singapore charges an import fee, even for Assistance Dogs, even for layovers.
Multiple import licences are available for frequent travellers.
Contact the The Animal & Veterinary Service (AVS)
- Confirm any specific requirements with all Animal Quarantine Authorities before booking your trip. This includes both entering/leaving any country and all airline/cruise line requirements.
- The Travel Process can take several months so leave plenty of planning time for your trip (except for valid EU Pet Passport travel).
