How long does the Vet import visit take?

HI all!

Has anyone done their own pet import process and can advice how long the vet inspection and clearing of all documents take for dogs not undergoing quarantine?

We are trying to figure out at what time to book the pet taxi to pick up my husband there.

Thanks

Re: Opening a bank account with IPA

Just to update this thread for anyone who may need it. I managed this with DBS with IPA. Now have a functioning bank account even with internet banking.

Re: Opening a bank account with IPA

Hello!

I know this is old but was anyone successful to do this online with IPA before getting to Singapore?

I just tried DBS who are unable to deal with the German "ü" (ü=UE)

Thanks
