Singapore Pet Travel Question: Breed Bans and Import Rules

Monday, May 2, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions

Dear Sir or Madam,

Next year we'll probably move from Belgium to Singapore, but my research indicated that some breeds are forbidden.

Do you think this might be a problem?

Kind Regards,


Hi Valerie,

Wednesday, April 27, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

I'm moving from Angola to Texas with my dog. Is the titer test required?





Hi Yohanny,

Thanks, great question! The titer test is generally required for countries that are very strict about staying rabies-free or low-rabies, and though pets are required to be vaccinated against rabies, the titer test is not required for United States pet imports.

The United States is actually one of the easiest countries to move a pet -- take a look at the rules and requirements here....
