Pet Moving Information
Bringing Your Pets From Malaysia to Singapore
Pets should enter Singapore via the Singapore Changi Airport or the Tuas Checkpoint from Malaysia. Notification must be provided at least 5 days in advance when entering by land. Notice should be given at least 5 days in advance of arrival to the AVS so they will be available to inspect your pet upon landing.
Brachycephalic, snub-nosed or flat-faced breeds
Safety is our first priority and our pet travel & pet relocation policies have been designed to protect the wellbeing of all pets who travel with us. Animals with shortened or flattened noses, known as brachycephalic, snub-nosed or flat-faced breeds, are becoming very popular pet choice around the world. These breeds have a significantly higher risk of health complications due to their short snouts and compromised respiratory systems, known as Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome (BOAS). Breathing difficulties intensify in warmer conditions, when pets are anxious due to unfamiliar surroundings or when unacclimated to their transport container.
Your best friend deserve the best crates
Selecting the right crate isn’t just about making sure your pet is safe, but that they’re happy and comfortable too. It’s also important the crate you use is airline-approved and measures up with IATA requirements.
Sedation & use of tranquilizers
It has been a long standing practice of IATA and its constituent carriers to discourage the use of sedatives and tranquilizers in animals to be transported either as cargo or as cabin baggage due to the potential for adverse effects during transport.
Travel Crate Requirements
The air crate must have ventilation on all three sides and the inside of the crate must be smooth with no sharp edges. The door of the air carrier must be metal with an all-around locking system with pins extending at least 1.6 cm above and below the door. The door must strong enough to keep the pet inside securely.
