Rabies outbreak in Malaysia

In view of the confirmed outbreak of Rabies in Malaysia, AVA has temporary suspended all importation of pet dogs, cats and small mammals into Singapore with immediate effect.

This measure will extend to the species of pets which are susceptible to the disease, including rabbits, chinchillas, dogs and cats. This is a necessary measure taken by AVA to ensure that Singapore remains free from rabies. 

This restriction does not apply to pets moving from Ireland. It ONLY relates to the movement of pets originating or transiting Malaysian ports.
