General Information

All animal exhibitions and animal performances should have a valid licence from us before an event or show is staged.

Animal exhibitions are categorised either as permanent or temporary.

A permanent animal exhibition is the exhibition of animals in a place for a period long enough to require approval by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) or Housing & Development Board (HDB).

Examples include exhibitions in zoos, marine parks, and oceanariums. Permanent animal exhibition licences must be renewed annually.

A temporary animal exhibition is a temporary event where animals are displayed. It may include animal performances featuring animals such as dogs and horses.
