Bringing Pets?

Post by NCD22 » Tue, 08 Jan 2008 3:10 pm

Hi! I have been in Shanghai for the past 5 years and am considering moving to Singapore with my wife and two cats. Does anyone know where I can get info on the requirements/process for bringing cats with us?

They are in good health, have been spayed/neutered and are current with all vaccinations and related work. We use Shanghai PAW vet clinic in Shanghai, are they also in Singapore?

Any help much appreciated!

In this website from the Veterinarian Authority you can find all the regulations about requirements, quarantine and so

Hope it's useful for you!

WOW! Talk about detailed...After the mess of seeing people import animals to China it is nice to see a page that outlines the procedure.

Looks like the little buggers will spend 30 days in the clink, but that is reasonable...

Thanks again!

In addition to the link provided above, see more links for "Veterinary Services" in my signature for pet care after your arrival. You may also want to read the following thread:
